The developmental disorder of speech and language is a type of neurological disorder that results in speech and language among kids.

Augmentative or alternative communication can be used to help kids to develop their speech skills.(1)

Examples of the problems associated with the developmental disorder are as follows:
- Speech disorder
- Language delay
- Language disorder

If these problems are noticed in the child, then the language development specialist will suggest remedial process after an evaluation. The major problem is that children will exhibit a slower approach reaching a language milestone than the other children of their age.

Detecting symptoms of language and speech problems involve the following evaluations:
- Checking for hearing loss, total or partial, is one of the first steps to check for the problem.
- Careful examination of the problem, whether it is language or speech problem.

- Talking to the child
- Listening and answering to the child

- Play with the child

Medications:
