Loss of Speech – Stroke, when brain regions that control speech and reading comprehension are destroyed due to blockage of blood flow, patients are often unable to speak or comprehend spoken or written language. These difficulties with language, or “aphasia,” are a common symptom in the aftermath of a stroke.
Speech Impairment – Hearing Loss, children with hearing loss often cannot hear quiet speech sounds such as “s,” “sh,” “f,” “t,” and “k” and therefore do not include them in their speech. Thus, speech may be difficult to understand. Children with hearing loss may not hear their own voices when they speak. They may speak too loudly or not loud enough.
Some speech defects result from a physical condition, such as brain damage, cleft palate, a disease of the larynx, or partial or complete deafness. Other speech defects may be caused by a person’s environment. For example, a child who receives little encouragement to talk at home may not develop normal speech skills. Severe emotional problems, such as pressure to succeed or a lack of love, can also lead to speech difficulties.
Our speech therapists diagnose patient’s speech problems, they take detailed case histories and give patients a special speech and hearing tests. A patient may need medical or psychological treatment in addition to speech therapy.
