What is a Communication Disorder?

Many children struggle with speech or language disorders, to include difficulty with articulating words and interacting both verbally and nonverbally. In all cases, early intervention is recommended for the best possible treatment outcomes.

Communication disorders involve persistent problems related to language and speech. Children may experience a delay in language acquisition due to problems with hearing, emotional issues, medically-based disease or other disorders such as autism or apraxia; however, the cause of communication disorders is frequently unknown.

Children may not be able to find the words to express themselves, or discover it is difficult to link sounds together in the correct sequence to be understood. Children with language disorders may demonstrate symptoms such as frustration, lack of social interaction and an inability to follow directions.
