  • Central Auditory Processing: Deficits in the processing of audible signals that cannot be attributed to peripheral hearing loss or intellectual impairment. For more information, see the National Coalition on Auditory Processing Disorders.
  • Articulation: Inability to produce clearly the sounds of speech making it difficult for the listener to understand the speaker.
  • Fluency: Abnormal high frequency or duration of interruptions in the flow of speech, usually characterized by repetitions, prolongations or stopping of airflow. For more information, see the Stuttering Foundation of America.
  • Voice: Misuse, abuse or disease of the vocal mechanism that results in inappropriate pitch, loudness, quality or fatigue of the voice. Includes complete loss of voice due to surgery or injury.
