A speech disorder refers to a problem with the actual production of sounds, whereas a language disorder refers to a difficulty understanding or putting words together to communicate ideas.
Speech disorders include :
Articulation disorders : difficulties producing sounds in syllables or saying words incorrectly to the point that listeners can't understand what's being said.
Fluency disorders : problems such as stuttering, in which the flow of speech is interrupted by abnormal stoppages, repetitions (st-st-stuttering), or prolonging sounds and syllables (ssssstuttering).
Resonance or voice disorders : problems with the pitch, volume, or quality of the voice that distract listeners from what's being said. These types of disorders may also cause pain or discomfort for a child when speaking.
Dysphagia/oral feeding disorders : these include difficulties with drooling, eating, and swallowing.

Language disorders can be either receptive or expressive :
Receptive disorders : difficulties understanding or processing language.
Expressive disorders : difficulty putting words together, limited vocabulary, or inability to use language in a socially appropriate way.

Parents are advised to make contact with a speech pathologist if they have any concerns about their child's speech, language or learning abilities. Speech Pathologists can give professional advice on whether a child's difficulties are expected for their age or if an assessment is warranted. Parents are urged to seek early assessment, diagnosis and treatment for communication problems, particularly prior to school entry.
Parents can phone us or drop in to our clinic. Unfortunately, during some peak periods of the year, we experience high levels of demand for our services. At these times, children may be placed on a waiting list for service or experience a wait of greater than a month for their first appointment.
The most effective, high quality, tailor made therapy for a child comes from a thorough assessment of the child's temperament, difficulties and needs. It is for this reason that all new clients to Therapy Matters must have an assessment at their initial consultation even if they have seen another speech pathologist previously.
