Anyone is familiar with this developmental disorder? I am a mum of three kids, my second son is 4 years old, his pediatrician told us that he is likely to have semantic pragmatic disorder, which after doing some research in the internet now this disorder is called pragmatic language Impairment . He seems to tick all the symptoms language delay, poor social skills, doesn't seem to understand why and who questions, I am really concerned about him in regard to what the future holds for him, try to reassure myself he is going to improve bit by bit, he'll get there,he will be OK, but sometimes I just feel really down and frustrated with his slow progress, he should be starting school next year but I don't think he is ready yet. If anyone could help me with some feedback or any familiar case you've heard about, would you please share it? He was seeing a speech therapist ,which it worked for a few sessions but then he didn't want to do them anymore, it was a waste of time and money, so we decide to stop for a bit and planning to try again with another speech therapist especialiazed with children who have this semantic pragmatic disorder
Any comment will be much appreciated

Hi my son has a severe (when first tested) language disorder (even though he has high functioning ASD his language pragmatics tested as normal!?).
Anyway, speech therapy has worked wonders but you really need to find the right one. The first speechie we saw the entire thing was a disaster. After we found a speechie he clicked with everything improved quickly.
My son has trouble answering "wh" questions too. He moved through this very fast, in about one session for each question (as in one week we did "where" then next week "what", another week "who" "why""when" and so on.)
If you have any questions feel free to message me. Good luck!
