Receptive language delay occurs when a person has difficulty processing and comprehending language. Children with receptive language delay may struggle to follow instructions, comprehend stories, or understand the meaning of words and phrases. This can lead to challenges in school, social interactions, and daily life.
Expressive language delay, on the other hand, involves difficulty in expressing one's thoughts and ideas verbally or in writing.
