Speech delays and disorders

Articulation

Difficulty saying age appropriate sounds based on normal speech development patterns
(e.g., a child says “wion” instead of “lion”).

 

Phonology

Errors that affect a group of sounds that compromise a child’s speech and language system
(e.g., a child consistently drops the last sound in all of their words).

Language Delays and Disorders

Expressive Delays

Difficulties conveying a message. Potential areas of difficulty include incorrect use of plurals, gender pronouns, verb tenses and conjunctions.

 

Receptive Delays

Difficulties comprehending what is said
(e.g., following multi-step instructions or understanding stories).

 

Auditory Processing Disorders

Difficulty making sense of information that the child hears.

Motor Speech Disorders

 

Childhood Apraxia of Speech

  • Trouble saying sounds, or combining sounds, syllables and words.
  • Inconsistent error patterns (e.g., “ball” may become “ba,” “uh,” “bap,” etc.).

 

Dysarthria

Unintelligible or imprecise speech related to muscle weakness. These children may exhibit slurred speech, difficulty controlling volume, rate of speech, intonation and resonance.

Reading Deficits

Pre-literacy Skills
