Kids Who May Need Speech Therapy


Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are a diverse group of conditions related to development of the brain, characterized by some degree of difficulty with social interaction, communication, and language skills.

Speech-Language Delay or Disorder

A speech or language delay is when a child is meeting developmental milestones in the appropriate sequence but at a slower rate when compared to their same-aged peers.

A speech or language disorder is when a child is reaching their milestones but in an atypical pattern or sequence.

Speech Sound Disorder

A speech sound disorder encompasses articulation disorders, phonological disorders, and motor speech disorders (apraxia).

In all cases, a child has difficulty producing the sounds that are necessary for effective communication.

Social Communication Disorder

A social communication disorder is characterized by difficulties with the use of verbal and nonverbal language in context for social purposes (pragmatics).

This includes conversational skills, language processing, and interpreting and expressing emotions.

Fluency Disorder/Stuttering

A fluency disorder is present when a person has difficulty speaking with a smooth flow or ‘fluency’ of speech (i.e. repetition of words, parts of words, sounds, facial movements, etc).

Feelings of self-consciousness can be a factor if awareness is high. Younger children are typically not aware.

Intellectual Disability

An intellectual disability is characterized by onset in the developmental period and significant limitations in adaptive behavior and intellectual functioning.

Down Syndrome

Down syndrome is a genetic disorder caused when abnormal cell division results in an extra full or partial copy of chromosome 21.

The extra chromosome is associated with delays and differences in the child’s intellectual, physical, and speech-language development.

Genetic Disorder

A genetic disorder occurs when a mutation or change affects one’s DNA sequence. Symptoms of genetic disorders vary widely, depending on the disorder, and can range from mild to severe.

Speech-language treatments can be developed to help improve the child’s functional communication and overall quality of life.
Teamwork and flexibility in our plan will be important for success in therapy!
