Language processing is defined as the encoding, analysis, and formulation of language content (words, sentences
and discourses). This uses many parts of our brain, including our attention, memory, visual, language, and our
executive systems. Language processing is used every day for academic, social, and day-to-day purposes. It is
an important mechanism for learning because it allows us to analyze and organize information.
Language processing coincides with social communication, attention, memory, and executive function skills.
Therefore, difficulty in those areas must be addressed to successfully improve language processing. Problems
with language processing are treated on an individual basis according to their needs. For example, an
individual might have difficulties following stories that shift in time or in place. In another example,
an individual might have to plan a social gathering by deciding who to invite, making the invitations, and
preparing to host the event.
