Areas of Communication

  • Our goal in the Earlington Speech Language Pathology Department is for all students to become successful communicators. There are many aspects that affect whether or not children are communicating successfully with their peers and teachers. Below are just a few of those areas.

    Articulation-how we say our speech sounds.

    Expressive Language-our ability to use words to talk with other people.

    Receptive Language-our ability to understand what other people are saying.

    Pragmatics-our ability to use language appropriately in different social situations. 

    Voice-the way our vocal cords vibrate to make sound.

    Fluency-the rhythm of our speech.
