Communication Disorder #1 - Speech

Speech is the ability to articulate and pronounce speech sounds correctly and fluently. Speech is the verbal means of communicating and consists of the following:

Articulation - How speech sounds are made (children must learn how to produce the "r" sound in order to say "rabbit" instead of "wabbit").
Voice - Use of the vocal folds and breathing to produce sound.
Fluency - The rhythm of speech (hesitations or stuttering can affect fluency).
