Speech and Language Disorders and Diseases
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.These speech problems can occur either in childhood or among adults. Among adults, stroke, injuries, accidents etc can lead to loss of acquired speech and language. 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.
Definition of Speech Therapy
What is speech therapy?
Speech therapy is a methodical approach meant to improve or eliminate language and speech difficulties.
What’s the name of a person who provides speech therapy?
Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) is the person who provides the service. Commonly, SLP is known as “speech therapist”.
Difficulties in Speech Therapy
What kind of difficulties does the speech therapist face? First of all, we have to understand the differences between speech and language. According to SLPs, speech has relation with the method of communicating. In a speech, someone is forming sounds together with the effort of the following variables:
When someone has difficulties in making sounds and combining them in order to create words as the act of speaking, he/she has a speech problem.
Speech problems also can be seen in these factors:
Misarticulations are another kind of speech problem. Someone who mispronounces, such as “dags” for “dogs” would be the example of misarticulations.
Not having enough breath to speak or being hoarse all the time is also a speech problem.
Stuttering or stammering is a speech problem too. Someone who has disorder of rhythm and timing is a stutterer.
Once again, speech disorders or speech difficulties are commonly about how to speak and talk correctly. It is not about sharing ideas, feelings, or thoughts with others.
