Speech Disorders and Language Disorders

A speech disorder refers to a problem with the actual production of sounds, whereas a language disorder refers to a difficulty understanding or putting words together to communicate ideas.

Speech disorders include:

Difficulties producing sounds in syllables or saying words incorrectly to the point that listeners can't understand what's being said.

Problems such as, in which the flow of speech is interrupted by abnormal stoppages, repetitions (st-st-stuttering), or prolonging sounds and syllables (ssssstuttering).

Problems with the pitch, volume, or quality of the voice that distract listeners from what's being said. These types of disorders may also cause pain or discomfort for a child when speaking.

These include difficulties with drooling, eating, and swallowing.

Language disorders can be either receptive or expressive:

Difficulties understanding or processing language.

difficulty putting words together, limited vocabulary, or inability to use language in a socially appropriate way.

Specialists in Speech-Language Therapy

Speech-language pathologists (SLPs), often informally known as speech therapists, are professionals educated in the study of human communication, its development, and its disorders. Buds to Blossom's Speech Therapists are the best in town to help ASD children to develop their communication skills. We follow globally recommended therapy sessions that enable the autistic child to show improvements in soft skills.

The enrolled autistic children in our Speech Therapy Clinic In Chennai, assess speech, language, cognitive communication, and oral/feeding/swallowing skills to identify types of communication problems (articulation; fluency; voice; receptive and expressive language disorders, etc.) which helps our therapists to plan tailor-made episodes for each child to help them surpass their delayed disability.

Remediation

In speech-language therapy, an SLP will work with a child one-on-one, in a small group, or directly in a Group to overcome difficulties involved with a specific disorder.

Therapists use a variety of strategies, including:

The SLP will interact with a child by playing and talking, using pictures, books, objects, or ongoing events to stimulate language development. The therapist may also model correct pronunciation and use repetition exercises to build speech and language skills.

Articulation, or sound production, exercises involve having the therapist model correct sounds and syllables for a child, often during play activities. The level of play is age-appropriate and related to the child's specific needs. The SLP will physically show the child how to make certain sounds, such as the "r" sound, and may demonstrate how to move the tongue to produce specific sounds.

The SLP will use a variety of oral exercises — including facial massage and various tongue, lip, and jaw exercises — to strengthen the muscles of the mouth. The SLP also may work with different food textures and temperatures to increase a child's oral awareness during eating and swallowing.

When do you require Speech Therapy?

Kids might need speech-language therapy for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Hearing impairments
  • Cognitive (intellectual, thinking) or other developmental delays
  • Weak oral muscles
  • Excessive drooling
  • Chronic hoarseness
  • Birth defects such as cleft lip or cleft palate
  • Motor planning problems
  • Respiratory problems (breathing disorders)

  • Traumatic brain injury

A child suffering from the above-mentioned cases needs special attention. Buds to Blossom highly recommend that parent has to enrol their child on Speech Therapy Classes as soon as possible. Children enrolled in therapy early (before they're 5 years old) tend to have better outcomes than those who begin therapy later. Our Speech Therapy Clinic In Chennai is incorporated with a quality ambience that makes ASD children feel comfortable and encourage them to take part actively in all episodes.

Buds to Blossom's Speech Therapists help older kids make progress in therapy. We design therapy classes in such a way that the child does not feel hard to unlearn and learn patterns when enrolled in our therapy classes.

Helping Your Child

Speech-language experts agree that parental involvement is crucial to the success of a child's progress in speech or language therapy.

Parents are an extremely important part of their child's therapy program and help determine whether it is a success. Kids who complete the program quickest and with the longest-lasting results are those whose parents have been involved.

Ask the therapist for suggestions on how you can help your child. For instance, it's important to help your child do the at-home stimulation activities that the SLP suggests to ensure continued progress and carry-over of newly learned skills.

The process of overcoming a speech or language disorder can take some time and effort, so it's important that all family members be patient and understanding with the child.
