Caring for All Speech, Language and Voice Disorders
Speech is the sound that is produced by a person after modifications of the lips, teeth, tongue, palate and throat of a person. Hence, difficulties with speech stem from these things. Issues that are noticeable could be cleft lip and palate, mumbling, garbling, stuttering, trouble with pronunciation and nasal or hollow sounding speech. Voice is the sound that is produced by the voicebox. Voice problems are limited to problems of the voicebox and could result in raspy, hoarse or breathy sounds.
