  • RECEPTIVE LANGUAGE—understanding spoken or written language.

 

  • EXPRESSIVE LANGUAGE—ability to communicate wants, needs, and thoughts through words, sentences, gestures, and writing.

 

  • ARTICULATION—production of sounds to make words.

 

  • COGNITION—ability to think, concentrate, remember, reason and put ideas together.

 

  • FEEDING | SWALLOWING—the process of food entering the mouth, chewing and swallowing.

 

  • STUTTERING—disruption in fluency of speech.

 

  • SOCIAL LANGUAGE—understanding and appropriate use of language in social situations.

 

  • VOICE AND RESONANCE—quality, loudness and pitch of voice.
