Over half of the students with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) in schools today require some form of speech-language therapy. There are a number of disorders that fall under the “speech” umbrella. A speech-language deficit occurs when there is a break down in any area of speech or language.
According to ASHA…
“When a person is unable to produce speech sounds correctly or fluently or has problems with his or her voice, then he or she has a speech disorder. Difficulties pronouncing sounds or articulation disorders, and stuttering are examples of speech disorders.”
“When a person has trouble understanding others (receptive language) or sharing thoughts, ideas, and feelings completely (expressive language), then he or she has a language disorder. A stroke can result in aphasia or a language disorder.”
“Both children and adults can have speech and language disorders. They can occur as a result of a medical problem or have no known cause.”
