Speech and language skills are absolutely essential to the social development and academic success of a child. Without a strong foundation in communication, children can struggle academically, experience low self-esteem, receive poor grades, and not set themselves up for future success.
Common communication disorders that can affect a child’s classroom performance include (but are not limited to):
Speech sound disorders: Difficulty pronouncing sounds
Language disorders: Difficulty understanding what they hear as well as expressing themselves with words
Cognitive-communication disorder: Difficulty with thinking skills including perception, memory, awareness, reasoning, judgment, intellect and imagination
