    Speech

    Speech

    Speech production is the ability to use certain speech sounds or sound patterns when talking. An example of a speech production difficulty, may be a child saying "tat" instead of "cat". It's completely normal for a child to make these mistakes when first learning new words, however, speech sound delay or disorder may be present when mistakes continue past a certain age and the child is very difficult to understand.
    Language

    Language

    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).

    Literacy

    Literacy

    Literacy is a person's ability to read and write. Reading and writing are important skills to master, helping us to function in school, on the job, and in society. Children with communication disorders often display traits of poor literacy, putting them a step behind their peers. Poor literacy tends to have a dramatic impact in peoples lives, and as always, early intervention is key.

    Social Skills

    Social Skills / Communication encompasses the way a person uses their language in social settings. From simply understanding how to use language for different purposes (request, command etc.) to taking turns and interpreting body language, social skills are crucial building blocks in forming relationships with our peers.
    Fluency

    Fluency

    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.
