In brief: Receptive language

has tto do w/the ability to process/understand what is being said to your daughter. Expressive language has to do w/her ability to make herself known/understood w/language.
Learning specialists, perhaps found through your school district or doc, can help. All of the above can make her anxious, which interferes w/communication. Lots of reasons to hope. Peace and good health.
