In brief: Language

Expressive language can be delayed till age 3.
While vocabulary can be good, sentence structure, use of past and future tense, and pronunciation may be issues especially till adolescence. Children with ws can have language skills that seem better than their overall iq. Their visual-spatial skils are much lower than their verbal skills.
