Abstract: Impaired language affects all other functioning within the person as well as how other people act towards and relate to him. Impaired language means that the person cannot adequately communicate either his needs or his interests. If the person is a child, he is at an ever-increasing disadvantage with respect to his normal peer who begins to outstrip him at an exponential rate. The' retarded or language impaired person - suffers socially. Others do not understand at all or they misunderstand. Often they have neither the patience nor the time to listen to what the handicapped person is trying to say.
