Communication is one of the most complex and dynamic aspects of human behavior. Impairments in any of the communication processes such as speech production, receptive (understanding) and expressive language, and hearing can have a devastating effect on an individual. Children and adults with communication disorders may encounter overwhelming daily obstacles and may find it difficult to establish positive relationships with others. Children may be ridiculed and experience less success in the classroom while adults may experience difficulty in maintaining their jobs and fully participating in their community.
