Receptive language disorder is a type of learing disability affecting the ability to understand and sometimes written language. Receptive language disorders can result from inherited conditions or may be caused by brain injuries or stroke. Children with autism have problems in three areas of development — social interaction, language and behavior.

My son was also diagnosed with autism. His language did not become legible until he was 5. Speech therapy was not beneficial initially, as he did not want to communicate. He did mimic words and sounds, but had no verbal skills until 3 years old. When he demonstrated a desire to communicate, therapy was resumed. Rewarding speech skills proved invaluable.
