WHAT IS A SPEECH DISORDER?
A speech disorder is suspected when a child does not say sounds at the expected age, repeats sounds or words, or has a difference in voice quality.
WHAT IS A LANGUAGE DISORDER?
A language disorder is suspected when a child has trouble understanding what others are saying or has trouble expressing thoughts, ideas, and feelings in an organized manner.
WHAT IS A READING DISORDER?
A reading disorder is suspected when a child has difficulty with any part of the reading process including decoding, word recognition, and reading comprehension.
WHAT IS ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNING?
English language learners are bilingual/multilingual
speakers who are learning English for the first time. They may have difficulty speaking and writing in English but do not have signs of language disorder. This is not a disorder and tutoring can help boost skills. However, if bilingual students are having difficulty in both languages (i.e., native language and English), an evaluation is recommended.
