II. General overview about Speech and Language impairments

General overview about Speech and Language Impairments
Speech and language impairments include a variety of conditions that interfere with communication. Many of these disabilities are relatively rare or subtle in appearance, and the individual’s lack of any visible abnormalities may further disguise speech and language impairments. Continue reading

III. Learning how Speech and Language diagnoses and treatment are organized

The beginning of speech and/or language therapy involves gathering and analyzing information about a person’s linguistic, speech and physical abilities (as related to speech/communication).
