SPEECH & LANGUAGE THERAPY

Speech-language therapy is the treatment for most kids with speech and/or language disorders.

 

What Are Speech Disorders?

A speech disorder refers to a problem with making sounds. Speech disorders include:

·        Articulation disorders: This involves difficulty in making sounds in syllables, or saying words incorrectly to the point that listeners can't understand what is being said.

·        Fluency disorders: These include difficulty such as stuttering, in which the flow of speech is interrupted by unusual stops, partial-word repetitions ("b-b-boy"), or prolonging sounds and syllables (sssssnake).

·        Resonance or voice disorders: These are difficulties with the pitch, volume, or quality of the voice that distract listeners from what's being said. These types of disorders may also cause pain or discomfort for a child when speaking.

What Are Language Disorders?

A language disorder refers to a difficulty in understanding or putting words together to communicate ideas. Language disorders can be either receptive or expressive.

Receptive disorders are difficulties with understanding or processing language.

Expressive disorders are difficulties with putting words together, having a limited vocabulary, or being unable to use language in a socially appropriate way.

Cognitive-communication disorders are difficulties with communication skills that involve memory, attention, perception, organization, regulation, and problem solving.
