Problems with receptive language skills usually begin before age 4. Some mixed language disorders are caused by a brain injury. These conditions are sometimes misdiagnosed as developmental disorders.


Language disorders may occur in children with other developmental problems, hearing loss, autism spectrum disorder, Cerebral Palsy, brain injury and learning disabilities. A language disorder may also be caused by damage to the central nervous system, which is called aphasia.

Speech disorders include:

  • Articulation disorders: difficulties producing sounds in syllables or saying words incorrectly to the point that listeners can't understand what's being said.
  • Fluency disorders: problems such as stuttering, in which the flow of speech is interrupted by abnormal stoppages, partial-word repetitions ("b-b-boy"), or prolonging sounds and syllables (sssssnake).

  • Resonance or voice disorders: 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.

Language disorders can be either receptive or expressive:
  • Receptive disorders: difficulties understanding or processing language.
  • Expressive disorders: difficulty putting words together, limited vocabulary, or inability to use language in a socially appropriate way.

  • Cognitive-communication disorders: difficulty with communication skills that involve memory, attention, perception, organization, regulation, and problem solving.

Dysphagia/oral feeding disorders are disorders in the way someone eats or drinks, including problems with chewing, swallowing, coughing, gagging, and refusing foods.

What do Sessions Look like?

Session lengths are based on your child's need which will be discovered during our initial evaluation with your child.

What does therapy look like?

We believe in using highly-motivating and developmentally appropriate activities to engage your child and make therapy fun. This means, that sessions often involve play, following the child's lead, and using preferred activities/objects. We also believe in making therapy functional and personally relevant to you and your child to promote success outside of the session. This is done through providing parent coaching, integrating therapy into daily routines and activities of daily living, and taking advantage of clinic settings, home settings and community settings.
