Language can be learnt at different rates in children. However, if children miss language development milestones, they are regarded as having a language delay. If a language delay is ongoing or does not go away, it might be a sign of a language disorder. A child with a language delay or disorder could have trouble expressing their ideas and thoughts (expressive language) or understanding instructions and questions (receptive language).
Fluency refers to the continuity, smoothness, rate, and effort of speech production. The most common fluency disorder is stuttering, a speech disorder that causes interruptions in the rhythm or flow of speech.
