What Is A Speech & Language Disorder?
When a person is unable to produce speech sounds correctly, fluently or has problems with his or her voice, then they have a speech disorder. Sometimes speech issues occur on their own and other times, they co-occur with another disorder (for example, PDD, ADHD, or SPD). When a speech and language disorder is present, therapy from a licensed speech and language pathologist is imperative. Early intervention is critical for better therapy results.
