WHAT ARE LANGUAGE DISORDERS?
We speak of language disorders when we find alterations in
ability of a person to communicate, speak and
understand. When there are difficulties in pronouncing words, we speak of speech difficulties.
MOTOR MATURITY FIRST
A good level of motor maturity is required for language to be correctly developed.
LISTENING AND LANGUAGE
It has nothing to do with intelligence, but with listening, discrimination of sounds, their integration and production.
Speech and language disorders have consequences such as emotional, learning and social difficulties.
