Their writing may also be affected as they mature and begin to attend school.   During this course Cherryl will explore the nature of expressive language disorder and she will also discuss what the causes might be. Cherryl will discuss how to spot a child with expressive language disorder and she will give some examples of how a child might be affected.    Cherryl has also devised a further course ‘Ten Strategies for Working with Children with Expressive Language Disorder’.
