Disorders of Communication
December 5, 2011 2:20pm CST
Communication is a great skill. It is a great gift. Sometimes the householders and the teachers in the school can notice in the children the speech and communication disorders. Some will be speaking only a abrupt language that is very limited in quantity. These children who speak less will have very limited vocabulary and they may struggle a lot to learn the new vocabulary. The may stammer or pronounce defectively certain words. They will be using any short and simple sentences and will struggle to use compound and complex sentences. The grammar will be such a struggle to them. They like to say an essential word rather than a complete sentence. They may totally forget the important content of the discussion. They may struggle in conjugating the verbs. For this reason once the parents used to read the fairy tales and the children’s story to the children and make them read with correct pronunciation and correct tune. Today the parents may not have time to sit with them and give them reading practice. Very few people speak pure language. Many will adapt a short cut or a dialect. Today in school – in higher classes there is a choice to choose classical literature or spoken or functional English. From the nursery to High school as well as in degree classes students must be given a chance to read out loudly with correct pronunciation. Some times the defect in speaking may occur due to psychological trauma suffered by the student. He may totally forget the language. We do come across the parents and the teachers complaining that earlier a particular student was very talkative and now he is withdrawn or totally another person. The student may get blocked due to the shock suffered.

Teaching is one of the most important jobs there is I think, moulding the futures of the people who very well could be running the show in the future, communication is so important, communication in many ways, today people may be able to read but are still not good at communication, there are many different levels of communicating and I so do admire those teaching our young ones today.
