Whats it mean if child having a specific language impairment (sli)?

Specific language . impairment is a delay in mastering language in a child with no hearing loss or neurodevelopmental disorder. SLI includes deficits in vocabulary, syntax, grammar, phonological awareness & conversational skills, but not articulation. There is often a family history of SLI. The risk of dyslexia is 40-70%. Early, intensive language therapy & a language-enriched home environment help minimize impact.
Depends on age. If it is obvious that language is delayed, get it checked out. This is often the first indication that the child is within the autistic spectrum.
