Expressive Language Disorder Treatment & eLuma
eLuma offers unparalleled online speech therapy solutions for treating expressive language disorders. We know that the key to helping these students is to first see and then unlock their incredible potential. Our speech-language pathologists (SLPs) can provide all of the same required services live and online, through a fully-secure, HIPAA-compliant platform, as they can in person — and can do so with a high degree of effectiveness, efficiency and flexibility. We love working with these kids and find great satisfaction in seeing them progress in therapy for expressive language disorders.
What are Expressive Language Disorders?
Students with expressive language disorders have difficulty using language. They may present with difficulties such as:
Naming pictures or objects
Using appropriate gestures
Formulating grammatically-correct sentences
Using the correct word form or word ending
Altering their communication based on the situation and the listener
Initiating and maintaining conversation
Using the correct pronouns
Expressive language disorders can negatively impact a student’s ability to express their thoughts, wants, and needs. They may also affect social and other interactions. Expressive language disorders affect students’ use of language related to its form, content, and/or function.
Phonology: The sound system and rules related to sound combinations of language.
Morphology: The aspect of language related to the structure of the meaningful units of words.
Syntax: The order and combination of words in sentences.
Semantics: The meaning of words and word combinations in sentences.
Pragmatics: The system of language related to its use in functional and social communication.
