It explains frustration. And if there are problems with choosing the right words, then the wrong words can often come out by mistake. Impulsivity is a separate problem but for various reasons you can get these problems together. When you do, the frustration level is even higher and the behaviour problems seem to be much worse.

They need a lot of flexibility in dealing with what they do and say. If a kid has more problems than most in the way they communicate with others, punishing them for poor communication or getting frustrated isn't really fair. Of course you need to teach that certain things are not acceptable but they need a different sort of handling for them to learn positively and effectively.

Receptive language is the communication going in. Expressive language is the communication going out. This would be extremely frustrating and moods might be going all over the place. difficult child 2 has problems with expressive language and that is why he has fits. One min he is fine and the next he is screaming. He is trying to tell us something and we just can't read his mind. Yours has it worse because he has problems with receptive language as well.

Emily did a wonderful job of explaing!

It is absolutely a reason for frustration. It's not so much a case that he doesn't think before he says things, but rather the inablity to express clearly what he means. Does that make sense?

There is also the receptive piece which means he may process what he hears differently than the words actually said.
