Fragile X Syndrome and Communication

June 28, 2018

June's edition of the Pediatric Speech Therapy Newsletter takes a detailed look at how Fragile X Syndrome affects a child's speech and language development!

 

Fragile X Syndrome is a genetic disorder that can cause intellectual disabilities and affect multiple areas of development for children. This disorder is much more prevalent in males than females, and approximately 1 out of every 4,000 males receives a diagnosis, whereas approximately 1 out of every 8,000 females receives a diagnosis (NIH).

 

Our second story this month covers Pediatric Articulation Disorders. Articulation refers to the clear production of distinct speech sounds. An articulation disorder can affect a child’s ability to communicate effectively with others in academic or social settings. For example, a child may produce the/r/ consonant sound like a /w/.

 

Here's the full rundown for our June 2018 issue:

  • Speech and Language Development in Children with Fragile X Syndrome

  • Pediatric Articulation Disorders

  • Ask a Therapist: How can I teach my child to make requests?

  • App of the Month: PCS Bingo

  • Speech Therapy Spotlight: Deborah Esquivel, MA, CCC-SLP

 

Happy reading!
