Thousands of children are diagnosed with a communication disorder each year. There are numerous common speech problems in children including stuttering, cluttering, articulation disorders,and apraxia. While speech may seem effortless to many, it is actually a complex process. This intricate process requires precise timing, nerve, and muscle control. The ability to understand language and produce speech is coordinated by the brain. By coordinating many various muscles, we are able to speak. These muscles that we must coordinate include:
- Larynx (contains vocal cords)
- Respiratory system
