ADHD/ADDADHD and ADD are often recognized by an individual's above normal hyperactivity levels, impulsive behaviors, and/or lack of focus or attention. These symptoms are often first recognized as they cause disruption in home routines and academic settings, however what goes silently unrecognized are the underlying language challenges the individual is having such not understanding directions and unable to follow them; difficulty organizing, planning and executing tasks which makes it difficult to follow activities through to completion; disorganization resulting in lost homework, completed homework not turned-in, and incomplete assignments; social challenges due to impulsivity and often not "saying the right thing", etc. Individual's who present with ADHD/ADD are regularly mistaken as "not listening" or intentionally being defiant.ArticulationArticulation impairments are characterized by an inability or difficulty producing certain sounds which makes speech hard to understand. For example, one of the most common errors in small children is the sound "f" (child will say"pish" when trying to say "fish"). Another very common error is the "r" ("wed" instead of "red"). Articulation disorders can affect children and adults alike.AphasiaAphasia results in the loss of the ability to understand and/or express language due to injury or illness. It can have devastating affects on communication skills, memory, ability to read, write, tell time, complete mathematical calculations, etc.
