During Better Hearing and Speech Month, we raised a lot of awareness of the importance of knowing the signs of speech, language, hearing and auditory processing disorders.
In the United States, 40 million individuals are diagnosed with a communication disorder. This can include speech disorders, which occur when a person is unable to produce speech sounds correctly or fluently, or has problems with their voice. Additionally, individuals can be impacted by language disorders which occur when a person has trouble understanding others (receptive language) or sharing thoughts, ideas and feelings completely (expressive language). #knowthefacts
