Social/Pragmatic Language Disorders

Pragmatics refers to the functional and appropriate use of language in social situations. For example, knowing what to say, how to say it, when to say it and generally how to "act" around other people during conversation.  Using language for different purposes such as greetings and informing, changing language to fit the situation and following conversational rules can be difficult for a child with a pragmatic language disorder.
