[Self-Test] Language Processing Disorders in Adults

Could your challenges with language be signs of a learning disability known as Language Processing Disorder? Take the results of this self-test to your doctor to find out.

Created from criteria from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and the Learning Disabilities Association of America.

Trouble with personal expression or interpersonal comprehension is often interpreted as a hearing problem, attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD), or sheer laziness. In reality, these problems may be symptoms of an expressive or receptive language disorder, a set of learning disabilities that make it difficult to use language to communicate with others or make yourself understood.

Take this self-test to determine if you may be showing signs of an expressive or receptive language disorder. Any positive results should be discussed with your doctor right away.

This screening test is designed to determine whether you show symptoms similar to those of an expressive or receptive language disorder, but it is not a diagnostic tool. A high score does not necessarily mean you have a language processing disorder. An accurate diagnosis can only be made through clinical evaluation by a trained healthcare professional. This screener is for personal use only.
