What kinds of communication disorders affect children?
Communication disorders are problems in speech, language, voice, and hearing that affect the way a person talks, understands, or analyzes information.
There are different types of communication disorders:
1. Speech disorders affect the intelligibility, voice quality, or fluency of a person's spoken words. Lisping, stuttering, or a chronically hoarse voice are all examples of speech disorders.
2. Language disorders affect a person's ability to hold meaningful conversations, understand others, problem-solve, read and comprehend, or express thoughts through spoken or written words.
3. Hearing impairments cover a range of hearing problems that can affect a person’s ability to discriminate, listen, or understand.
