Phonation
Under VOICE
any kind of abnormality in the vibration of the vocal fold (ie. hoarseness)
Resonance

2 of 4 classifications of language disorders.
Stuttering
Under Fluency Disorders
multiple false starts or the inability to produce the intended sounds.
Cluttering

Language processing disorders
caused by a brain-based disturbance called aphasia. There are 3 types: Receptive, Expressive, and Global.
Receptive Aphasia
“sensory aphasia”
results from a lesion to a region in the upper back part of the tempral lobe of the brain. Creates problems with listening comphension and retrieval of words from memory.(ie..repeating formulaic phrases and producing unitelligible sequences of words or sounds.)
Expressive Aphasia
results from damage to the lower back part of the frontal lobe. Affects the speaking ability with problems in articulation and fluency.(ie. very slow speech and short sentences)
Global Aphasia
“irreversible aphasia”
a brain-based disorder that affects both the receptive and expressive features of language.
No known help for this disorder.
Activities to Promote Oral Communication
Dramatic Play
Lanuage Play(rhymes, tongue twisters,songs)
