: ERIC Clearinghouse on Handicapped and Gifted Children Reston VA. Children with Communication Disorders. ERIC Digest #E470 (Revised #419). The term COMMUNICATION DISORDERS encompasses a wide variety of problems in language, speech, and hearing. Speech and language impairments include articulation problems, voice disorders, fluency problems (such as stuttering), aphasia (difficulty in using words, usually as a result of a brain injury), and delays in speech and/or language. Speech and language delays may be due to many factors, including environmental factors or hearing loss. Hearing impairments include partial hearing and deafness. Deafness may be defined as a loss sufficient to make auditory communication difficult or impossible without amplification. There are four types of hearing loss. Conductive hearing losses are caused by diseases or obstructions in the outer or middle ear and can usually be helped with a hearing aid. Sensorineural losses result from damage to the sensory hair cells of the inner ear or the nerves that supply it and may not respond to the use of a hearing aid. Mixed hearing losses are those in which the problem occurs both in the outer or middle ear and in the inner ear. A central hearing loss results from damage to the nerves or brain. Many communication disorders result from other conditions such as learning disabilities, cerebral palsy, mental retardation, or cleft lip or cleft palate.

Author: Catherine Crowley
October 2003 The disproportionate referral of bilingual and culturally diverse students to special education and related services is a pressing challenge in public school systems. Not only are unnecessary services a drain on resources, but they are harmful to children, taking them away from the classroom and inevitably stigmatizing them. In addition, an incorrect diagnosis may mean that a child does not receive the services he or she does need. Accurate assessment of culturally and linguistically diverse students is difficult in any area. Assessing the speech and language skills of these students is even more challenging. The evaluator must make the crucial differential diagnosis between a communication disorder and something else. This "something else" could have a cultural basis, such as a mismatch between demands of school and home, or a linguistic basis, such as evidence of the normal process of second language acquisition or speaking a non-standard dialect of English. This digest describes the current preferred practice in the assessment of communication disorders in culturally and linguistically diverse students.

86. Apraxia Therapy
Provides therapy ideas for those treating a child with apraxia of speech. From Judith Maginnis Kuster's communication disorders Internet Guide.
Child Apraxia Therapy Ideas
  • Posted to on May 14, 1999 by Donna Quesal
      If he isn't talking yet, you can begin with apraxia strategies like oral motor sequences with a favorite adult in the mirror, sensory stimulation to the oral area with tooth brushing, eating etc. and help him develop some awareness of what mouths do. Add voice when you can for fun and with non-word utterances at first (especially if there is a real psychological factor here). Enjoy sound sequences that can be shaped into words when he is ready.
  • The treatment program for children with speech apraxia must be individualized and flexible. Here are some general strategies I have used effectively over the past 15 years for children with developmental speech apraxia and normal hearing. I hope these ideas will be of some help to you.
  • Frequency, type and consistency of intervention are important. To treat speech apraxia, the speech-language pathologist needs to provide intensive direct therapy. The child's caregivers/assistants need to participate by doing daily follow-up activities with the child at home/school.
  • Divide the larger (longterm) goals into smaller (short-term) steps which are concrete and measurable, so that the child and caregivers can see progress. This maintains their motivation for doing home follow-up/practice activities. If the steps are too longterm, the family may feel frustrated because they do not perceive the more subtle (but still meaningful) changes in the child's speech.

    November 2001 The ability to communicate with others is critical to a young child's development and it is a prerequisite to academic learning, yet some children have disorders that interfere with various aspects of their abilities to communicate. This digest discusses various types of communication disorders, their incidence, the learning difficulties associated with them, the special case of English language learners, and the educational significance of communication disorders. What is a Communication Disorder? Children with communication disorders have deficits in their ability to exchange information with others. A communication disorder may occur in the realm of language, speech and/or hearing. Language difficulties include spoken language, reading and/or writing difficulties. Speech encompasses such areas as articulation and phonology (the ability to speak clearly and be intelligible), fluency (stuttering), and voice. Hearing difficulties may also encompass speech problems (e.g., articulation or voice) and/or language problems. Hearing impairments include deafness and hearing loss, which can result from a conductive loss, a sensorineural loss, a mixed loss, or a central hearing loss.

      Communication Disorders
    • Speech disorders are impairments in the production and use of oral language. Speech disorders vary and are often part of another disability. Language is the result of biological maturation, behavioral psychology, information processing, induction of linguistic rules, cognitive development, and social interaction. The first step in assessing a child for a communication disorder is to see what the child's current language capabilities are and the difficulty the child has in learning new language skills. Some of the disabilities language disorders may be associated with are autism, developmental delay in early childhood, traumatic brain injury, and emotional and behavioral disorders. The teacher, speech pathologist, and parents should all help the student overcome his/her speech disorder. It is important that the student exercise overcoming his/her speech problem in all aspects of life. Students who have disabilities that prevent oral communication can use augmentative communication.

    What is spasmodic dysphonia?
    Spasmodic dysphonia (or laryngeal dystonia) is a voice disorder caused by involuntary movements of one or more muscles of the larynx or voice box. Individuals who have spasmodic dysphonia may have occasional difficulty saying a word or two or they may experience sufficient difficulty to interfere with communication. Spasmodic dysphonia causes the voice to break or to have a tight, strained or strangled quality. There are three different types of spasmodic dysphonia. Top
    What are the types of spasmodic dysphonia?
    The three types of spasmodic dysphonia are adductor spasmodic dysphonia, abductor spasmodic dysphonia and mixed spasmodic dysphonia. Top

    Hearing Aids
    On this page:
    What is a hearing aid?
    A hearing aid is an electronic, battery-operated device that amplifies and changes sound to allow for improved communication. Hearing aids receive sound through a microphone, which then converts the sound waves to electrical signals. The amplifier increases the loudness of the signals and then sends the sound to the ear through a speaker. Top
    How common is hearing loss and what causes it?
    Approximately 28 million Americans have a hearing impairment. Hearing loss is one of the most prevalent chronic health conditions in the United States, affecting people of all ages, in all segments of the population, and across all socioeconomic levels. Hearing loss affects approximately 17 in 1,000 children under age 18. Incidence increases with age: approximately 314 in 1,000 people over age 65 have hearing loss. Hearing loss can be hereditary, or it can result from disease, trauma, or long-term exposure to damaging noise or medications. Hearing loss can vary from a mild but important loss of sensitivity, to a total loss of hearing.
