My Expertise

Pragmatic Language

This refers to the social language skills that we use in our daily interactions with others. This includes what we say, how we say it, our non-verbal communication (eye contact, facial expressions, body language etc.) and how appropriate our interactions are in a given situation.

Fluency

The smoothness or flow with which sounds, syllables, words and phrases are joined together when speaking quickly. “Fluency disorders” is used as a collective term for cluttering and stuttering.

Expressive Language

A broad term that describes how a person communicates their wants and needs.  Expressive Language skills include: facial expressions, gestures, intentionality, vocabulary, semantics (word/sentence meaning), morphology, and syntax (grammar rules).

Articulation

Articulation is the process by which sounds, syllables, and words are formed when your tongue, jaw, teeth, lips, and palate alter the air stream coming from the vocal folds.

Receptive Language

A broad term that describes a person’s ability to understand language whether it be heard or read.

Phonology

Study of the speech sound (i.e., phoneme) system of a language, including the rules for combining and using those speech sounds. Phonology involves your ability to identify and distinguish phonemes while listening (i.e., phonological awareness) as well as the appropriate use of phonological patterns while speaking. Phonology plays an essential role in reading and writing as it pertains to understanding letter sound associations (i.e., phonics)
