Speech Difficulties

Speech Perception


Speech perception (SP) most commonly refers to the perceptual mapping from the highly variable acoustic speech signal to a linguistic representation, whether it be phonemes, diphones, syllables, or words. It is the process by which the sounds of language are heard, interpreted and understood.

Difficulties in understanding words, concepts, grammatical structures, relationships between words, to follow instructions, and to understand narratives and stories (Delay in Speech Development, Special Language Disorders)



Acquired difficulty, usually after a stroke or brain injury in understanding oral speech. (Aphasia)

Expressive Language


Expressive language disorder is a communication disorder in which there are difficulties with verbal and written expression. It is characterized by an ability to use expressive spoken language that is markedly below the appropriate level for the mental age, but with alanguage comprehension that is within normal limits. There can be problems with vocabulary, producing complex sentences, and remembering words, and there may or may not be abnormalities in articulation.

As well as present speech production, very often, someone will have difficulty remembering things. This memory problem is only disturbing for speech; non-verbal or non-linguistically based memory will be unimpaired.

Expressive language disorder can be further classified into two groups: developmental expressive language disorder and acquired expressive language disorder. Developmental expressive language disorder currently has no known cause, is first observed when a child is learning to talk, is more common in boys than girls, and is much more common than the acquired form of the disorder.

Acquired expressive language disorder  is caused by specific damage to the brain by a stroke, traumatic brain injury, or seizures.
