Learning a language takes time, and children can vary in how long it takes before they become masters of theirs. Typically, developing children may have trouble with individual sounds, words, and sentences in the early process, but, for the most part, children are able to overcome these difficulties. In some cases, children may experience particular issues with their speech which requires specialist treatment.
According to the CDC Language development has different parts, and children might have problems with one or more of the following:
Understanding what others say (receptive language). This could be due to:
Communicating thoughts using language (expressive language). This could be due to:
Language delay – the ability to understand and speak develops more slowly than is typical

BehaviourWatch is in use by SEN schools both nationally and internationally to efficiently record critical data to help institutions clearly identify patterns and answer vital questions, such as “Is pupil X’s behaviour a challenge every Monday? Does pupil X display negative behaviour during every period 4? When is pupil X showing positive behaviour? Is the library causing pupil X a challenge? Does pupil X have a challenge with a particular member of staff? What interventions are helping reduce negative behaviour? Is medication impacting behaviour?”.
Each system is custom built to match existing policies and processes to support SEN schools with all aspects of behaviour management and can include SEMH assessment, EHCPs and intervention tracking to improve outcomes.
