23 Speech-Language Pathology WHAT DO WE DO? A RTICULATION A RTICULATION REFERS TO HOW SOUNDS A RE PRODUCED WITHIN WORDS, SENTENCES, A ND IN CONVERSATION. SOME SOUNDS DEVELOP EARLY ON IN CHILDREN WHILE OTHERS DEVELOP IN THE LATER YEARS. BY THE AGE OF 4, A CHILD S SPEECH SHOULD BE UNDERSTANDABLE 90% OF THE TIME. HOWEVER, THERE STILL MAY BE SOME SOUNDS THAT THEY HAVE NOT YET MASTERED.

24 Expressive Language vs. Receptive Language Expressive language refers to how words are used to communicate. Includes vocabulary size, length of sentences, grammar skills, using concepts, answering questions, and describing among other things. Receptive language is also called comprehension and refers to a person s understanding of language. Includes following directions, understanding concepts, and being able to process spoken language.

25 What does delayed speech and language look like? Not talking or limited vocabulary. Difficult to understand by familiar and/or unfamiliar listeners. Difficulty following directions. Doesn t seem to understand basic concepts that other children their age typically understand. Seems to have trouble processing information that is presented to them even after repeated attempts at explaining to them or having information presented in different ways. It should be noted that children develop at different rates and just because a child is having difficulty in one or more of these areas does not mean that they have a speech and/or language delay.

26 What can I do if I suspect my child might have a speech and/or language delay? TALK TO YOUR CHILD S TEACHER Your child s teacher may or may not have observed some of the same things in the classroom. Your child s teacher can ask a speech-language pathologist to complete an informal screening with your child. Follow up with the speech-language pathologist after the screening is completed to find out if further action is needed or if there are suggestions for practice activities at home.

27 What will the speech-pathologist do if there is a concern with my child? 1.
