CCC-SP/L, SWZWC Service Cooperative Although more than 5 mil- lion children in the United States have a speech, lan- guage, and/or hearing disor- der, parents are often unsure about what to do when they have concerns about their child's communication skills. It is important to address any concerns as soon pos- sible. Speech, language and/ or hearing delays or disorders can affect a child's ability to learn, socialize with others, and be successful in school. Speech and language prob- lems can occur at any time in a child's life. They can be caused by accidental injury, illness, be inherited by birth, or a developmental delay. Children's speech and lan- guage problems include: Stuttering Articulation problems ("wabbit" instead of"rabbit") Language disorders such as the slow development of vocabulary, concepts, and grammar. Voice disorders (nasal, breathy, or horse voice and speech that is too high or low) Parents who suspect their child has a communication disorder should see a speech- language pathologist. These professionals identify, assess, and treat speech and language problems. The initial evalua- tion can provide a wealth of infornaation about your child's current level of func- tioning in a variety of speech- language areas and determine if they would benefit from speech therapy. Even if they do not require speech thera- py, you will learn some valu- able information about" our child's communication skills that can help alleviate you concerns. Even if the problem can- not be eliminated, we can teach the child strategies to help them cope with their communication disorders, br provide them with the appro- priate technology. Parents who think their children may have a speech, language, or hearing disorder or know of someone who has a communication disor- der should make an appoint- ment with a speech-language pathologist or audiologist in their local school district.
