The importance of language cannot be overstated. It is the primary means for interacting with others, serves as the primary tool for learning, and is the foundation for academic success. When an individual has weaknesses in language, academic difficulties are usually apparent.

 Language involves input through reading and listening and output through speaking and writing. The five domains of language are phonology (ability to hear and manipulate the sounds of language), morphology (the ability to understand how small units of words such as prefixes and suffixes change the meaning of a word), syntax (understanding and use of grammar), semantics (the ability to understand and use words and word meanings to convey ideas), social language (one’s ability to use language to communicate and engage in conversations with others, to know the rules of communication, and to understand nonverbal language.).
