  1. Normative ApproachAn approach to identifying language disorders in which clinicians account for social norms and potential social, educational, vocational, and economic consequences of the child's language abilities in the decision-making process.


  2. Interactive AssessmentAllows SLPs to test beyond the limits of behaviors the child displays in non-teaching (testing) situations. This type of testing helps clinicians decide whether poor test performance is due to language learning difficulties or lack of understanding of the test task, or limited exposure to the types of questions that are being asked.


  3. ComprehensionThe ability to understand language (the opposite of expression).


  4. Family-Centered PracticeRefers to the child's level of development in a given area (language). It is the age of most typically developing children at the time their language is similar to the language of the child being tested.


  5. Language UseRefers to the social aspects of language, which are also called Pragmatics.


  6. Specific Language ImpairmentDifficulties acquiring language in the absence of any other mental, sensory, motoric, emotional, or experiential deficits (functional disorder).
