What is the difference between speech and language?

Speech is how we communicate verbally. It includes: Articulation (how sounds are made), Voice (use of the vocal folds to produce sound), and Fluency (the rhythm of speech).

Language is a common set of rules that dictate how we communicate with one another. Included in language are: vocabulary (word meanings), how we put words together (grammar), how we make new words, and social language rules (pragmatics) such as how long to maintain eye contact, how close we stand to communicative partners, and conversational turn-taking. 

How often should I attend therapy?

How often a client receives services depends on the client’s particular problem. Your therapist will discuss this in greater detail at your appointment to see what benefits you.
