12 Language Articulation Voice Respiration Swallowing Stuttering Social Skills Speech, Language, Communication, and Swallowing Disorders Anatomically, the speech mechanism consists of: the respiratory system (e.g., lungs) which produces the air we speak with, the articulators (e.g., tongue, lips) which shape that air into speech These same parts are also involved in swallowing.

13 Language Disorders Wernickes area is It is involved in the understanding of written and spoken language. Brocas area is associated with motor control of speech. Language disorders can affect grammar, understanding word meanings, understanding sequences, expressing ones self with the correct words, and much more.

14 Articulation Disorders Saying one sound for another (wabbit for rabbit) Omitting a sound in a word (i-cream for ice cream) Distorting a sound (thee for see) WATCH THE T SOUND sound.swf WATCH THE K SOUND sound.swf

15 Respiration Proper respiration is important because better breathing skills can help you say more words at a time (more air to speak on) and improve fluency (by reducing some of the tension associated with some stuttering moments).
