Semantic Pragmatic Disorder

(SPD) amplifies the problems of overlapping definitions of disorders. SPD is often confused with Asperger's Syndrome and Autism because so many of its traits are prevalent in these related conditions. The positioning of the label, SPG, is paramount in recognising one fact, that this entire page could be populated by labels with overlapping symptoms. Nevertheless one thing is for sure, children with this disorder have problems understanding the meaning of what other people say and they don't understand how to use speech appropriately themselves.
