Pediatric Speech Language Pathology

Most children make some mistakes as they learn to say new words. A speech sound disorder occurs when mistakes continue past a certain age. Speech sound disorders include problems with making sounds and sound patterns. When children cannot produce speech sounds correctly or fluently, or have problems with their voice, then they have a speech disorder.

Language: If children have trouble understanding others, or sharing thoughts, ideas and feelings completely, then they have a language disorder.

Feeding and swallowing: Feeding disorders include problems gathering food and sucking, chewing or swallowing. For example, children who cannot pick up food, get it to their mouth or completely close their lips to keep food from falling out of their mouth may have a feeding disorder.
