WH QuestionsDo you have a child who struggles with answering “WH” questions such as who, what, when, where and why?

WH questions tend to be a challenging skill to master for students in primary and elementary school years – even more challenging if there is a language ism.  Children with speech and language delays often have difficulty asking and answering questions appropriately.  This difficult skill requires the child to understand what is being asked, process the question, form an answer, and speak that answer.

Asking and answering questions is part of social language (pragmatics) and a challenge with WH questions can impact a child’s ability to interact and communicate with peers, family and teachers.  Left unaddressed, an inability to answer WH questions can impact reading comprehension.

An “Ism” is our coined term synonymous with a “challenge”. Many children, with or without a diagnostic label, experience various challenges throughout their developmental years which are impacting them in the classroom and at home. At Special-Ism, the Ism is our focus. We do not look at the diagnostic label, instead, we look at the Isms and offer solutions no matter the diagnosis.
