Since some communication disorders can be causes by learning disorders students can have a hard time learning to read or talking. The social life of those with communication can vary because they cannot always communicate like they need and want to. Early identification is key for those with communication disorders. There is no cure for the disorder, but helping a student identify his or her disability can help them overcome some of the hardest aspects of their disorder. Making friends at an early age is something every student tries to do. Because of a communication disorder a few students might need more help in this task. Families and teachers should work together to help the student become confident even with their disorder.
