Success in the Classroom and Beyond Diagnosing Communication Disorders Communication in Classrooms Communication Struggles
Symptoms of Communication Struggles:
- consistently incorrect/ no responses to questions
- confused/bewildered facial expressions
- low achievement in academics
- extreme struggle with reading
- difficulty understanding and expressing language
- misunderstanding social cues

Methods Used to Communicate: facial expressions, gestures, vocalization, speech, electronic devices, nonelectronic devices, writing, and signs.

Reasons for Communication: expressing needs and wants, developing relationships, transferring knowledge, and complying with etiquette standards. by Josh Bailey, Jordan Hobba, Jocelynn Pawlak What is Communication? Communication is all the verbal and nonverbal transaction processes between two or more individuals.

Communication allows people to share information and ideas using a variety of systems of language and behavior.

Verbal communication uses words, sounds, or symbols:
- oral language, sign language, writing
Nonverbal communication involves physical cues:
- gestures, body language, facial expressions,
eye contact, posture, visuals (pictures) For many people, communication involves spoken language, but
for some, the ability to hear speech, to speak, or to observe
nonverbal cues is compromised.

Reasons for Communication Disorders:
- deafness and muteness
- blindness
- speech impediments (slurring, stuttering)
- diverse cultures, ethnicities and dialects

Types of Communication Disorders:
- Expressive Language Disorder
- Mixed Receptive-Expressive Language Disorder

. Teachers, paraprofessionals, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, parents, and doctors can all work together to detect and diagnose a child's specific disorder and improve his/her ability to communicate.

Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) is a system of enhancing a person’s speech through the use of:
- aided communication methods: paper and pencil, communication
books, communication boards which create messages with pictures,
symbols and words
- physical gestures: sign language, eye contact, facial expressions
- electronic aids: hearing aids or voice output devices (speech
generating devices or SGD's)

Students utilize AAC because it can facilitate the crucial
interactions that lead to the development of close
friendships and relationships with adults and peers. Teachers should
observe the frequency and appropriateness of the social interaction between all students in classroom and extracurricular settings as much as possible. Speech and language disorders can negatively affect the way children talk, understand, analyze or process information. Communication = Learning = Knowledge = Success! For students with an inability to communicate effectively, it may be difficult to hold meaningful conversations, understand others, problem solve, read and comprehend, and express thoughts through spoken or written words, which are essential activities for success in the classroom. Effective
communication in inclusive classrooms leads to healthy mental and social lives which leads to learning!
