SPEECH

Speech is the production of sounds to produce effective verbal communication. Individuals with Speech Disorders could have a hard time saying sounds and will often be difficult to understand at the word, sentences, and/or conversation level. Areas which can be impacted include Fluency, Voicing, and Articulation/Phonological skills.

LANGUAGE

Language, in relation to communication, can be broken down into four specific areas:  Verbal Expression and Written Expression (Expressive Language); Auditory Comprehension and Reading Comprehension (Receptive Language).

LITERACY

Literacy is the ability to read and write. Language-based learning disabilities are literacy-related problems with reading, spelling and writing, and include dyslexia.  A comprehensive evaluation will help with differentiating between a language disorder, a reading disorder/dyslexia, and reading comprehension difficulty. Often times, language or speech disorders can occur with other learning disorders that affect reading and writing.
