Cognitive Communication Disorders

Some children experience cognitive-based communication disorders

These children may struggle with attention, memory, organization (arranging ideas in a useful order), perception (interpretation of sensory information), processing speed, and problem solving, which can make it difficult to listen, speak, read, write, or interact in social situations or in the classroom. Some possible symptoms of cognitive-communication disorders are:

  • Routinely struggling to keep normal sleep cycles
  • A Delay or a regression in language development
  • Difficulty paying attention
  • Memory problems
  • Difficulty remembering things previously learned
  • Difficulty with organization, planning, and other executive functioning

Our therapists here at PVSL&L, help identify the source of each child’s communication deficits and offer skilled therapy techniques to address them.
