behaviours as compared to children with expressive language difficulties, Also they are more likely to experience social and behavioural problems and to be the target for bullying. Their measures of cognitive and language performance tend to be consistent over time, but ratings or measures of behavioural difficulties are more variable they show higher level of behavioural, emotional, and social adjustment difficulties.

Language being the mode of communication is very important in comprehension, organization and for the articulation knowledge, As far as it affect on mathematical development is concerned the further areas such as oral language impairment, the use of language in instruction and assessment, the phonological process impairment, the role of working memory in knowledge of numbers, Basic Calculation, Knowledge of Combinations, and Story Problems and the counting process, principles will highlight the important details that
