Articulation and Phonology

Articulation is the production of speech sounds which involves the accuracy in placement of the tongue, lips, and teeth.  Phonology is the relationship between sounds that when combined in a word create meaning.  These sounds are characterized by manner and place of production (ex. /m,p,b/ are in the same class).

Auditory Processing

Auditory processing is the use of specific auditory skills such as sound blending and discrimination, auditory memory and/or auditory sequencing.  Sound blending is the act of listening to individual sounds, and combining them to make sense of a word (ex: /c/ /a/ /t/ = cat).  Auditory discrimination is the act of hearing differences between sounds in words (ex: cat/bat sound different).  Auditory memory is the act of recalling spoken information, either in a single word, phrase, or complete sentence.  Auditory sequencing is the act of combining sounds, syllables, and words into the proper order.

Expressive Language

Expressive language is the ability to communciate one's perceptions, feelings, ideas, or intentions via the spoken word.  This includes the use of vocabulary and grammar combined to formulate a meaningful and well organized sentence.  Expressive vocabulary is the use of vocabulary to label, describe, or compare objects, actions, and categories.  This includes nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs.  Grammar is the use of morphology (word endings like "ing", "ed", etc.) and syntax (pronouns, copula/auxilary "is/are") to develop simple and complex sentences.  Organization of thoughts refers to the ability to express your thoughts, comments, and ideas in an organized, sequential and logical manner.
