A Social Challenge for the Children
The children detected as having languages problems are divided in several groups. Some of them can not speak “understandably” and some are struggling to formulate all, understandable sentences.

The researcher noted that having these kinds of language problems is quite difficult and many of the children may be bullied as they are talking in that childish way.
