In the acquisition of language, children go through key milestones in language development that encompass auditory and information processing skills, and the abilities to integrate and translate them into written or spoken communication. Some children face challenges which can be manifested as difficulty in encoding appropriate information, identifying and processing words in reading, and integrating information to form words or express thoughts in writing. The panel will discuss how the increasing awareness of such challenges has led to a range of support services and resources developed to assist these children.
