Speech disorders?

Can anyone give me some info.. :]


Are they genetic?
What different types are there?

My friend has a problem understanding what he hears from communicating from the mouth.

I have a problem understand what I read and saying words in the right context and pronuncing them correctly.

Speech disorders can result from a wide variety of things, including hearing loss, neurological disorders, brain injury, mental retardation, drug abuse, physical impairments such as cleft lip and palate, and vocal abuse or misuse.

Similarly, a variety of different disorders exist. They are typically understood as being either "speech" disorders or "language" disorders. "Speech" disorders occur when a person is unable to produce speech sounds correctly or fluently, or has problems with his or her voice. "Language" disorders occur when a person has trouble understanding others (receptive language), or sharing thoughts, ideas, and feelings completely (expressive language).

There are many causes for speech delay and disorder. Autism, cerebral palsy, poor hearing/deafness, mental retardation to name a few. This child has the right to have speech therapy from birth to the age of 21 through the public school system. His parents need to set up an IEP with the Educational Service Unit, (ESU).  (+ info)

How does a speech therapist help people with speech disorders?

Does he/she talk to the person? Help in pronounciation? How?

There really is no way to answer that in a paragraph. Speech therapists have masters degrees so it wouldn't be possible to explain 5 years of study that simply. It depends on what the problem is, what is causing it, etc etc.  (+ info)

? for parents of kids with Austism, PDD, Speech Disorders, etc.?

My son is 3 1/2 and has a severe speech delay. His dev. ped. and his neurologist think it is Apraxia and possibly something else.

My question is this: My son has suddenly become very fussy, cranky, demanding etc. How do you deal with this type of behavior? It isn't the normal tantrums of terrible 2's and trying 3's---we already went through that. This is different---he complains (without being able to talk--so it is mostly whining and signing) whenever he can't watch his show, I won't buy him a toy, etc.

Again, I know a certain amount of this behavior is VERY TYPICAL of the age. We already went through the typical stuff--I'm talking about grumpy most all of the time. We've had no big family changes/stressful events/etc., and we're a pretty happy, positive family. Has this happened to your child? How do you deal with it--especially the constant fussing, whining, etc.?
Thanks so much for all the great answers. Everyone has given good advice---it is very reassuring. :)

It seems to be a combination of normal three-year-old frustrations added to diminished communication capacity. Even the smallest things can be harder for him to communicate. Previously, when he had less to think about, he had less communication needs. Now, internally, mentally, he's a lot more sophisticated, but he can't get it out like he wants to, so it frustrates him more than most kids would feel.  (+ info)

I am trying to come up with a clever personal email address for a speech pathologist. Any ideas?

Speech and language pathology: study of speech, language and voice disorders for purposes of diagnosis and treatment.

Speech-Language Pathologist: an individual with a degree or certification in speech and language pathology who is qualified to diagnoses speech, language and voice disorders to prescribe and implement therapeutic measures.

3 main topics for an eating disorder speech?

Im writing a speech on eating disorders for a class i have to present. I need 3 main topics. I have two so far i need a third. I have:
Awareness- Tells the importance of awareness how to help others how to be aware etc.
Illness/death- Topic describes the problems, health issues, and statistics

Does anyone have a third? Or have 3 different ones to use?

You could have mental effects and physical effects but i guess that comes under 'illness/death'.

How about treatment and outcomes- you could do a brief overview of the most common treatments offered (inpatient treatment, outpatient, self-help, CBT, psychotherapy etc.) and then talk about success rates of treatments and the likelihood of making a full recovery based on how early intervention is given.

Good luck with it. x  (+ info)
