The purpose of this study is to refer to the complications producing speech sound or problems with voice features. These problems can be characterized by break in the flow or rhythm of speech, for example, disfluency. Moreover, they can be problems with the way sounds are uttered such as articulation, phonological disorders or may be difficulties with the volume, pitch or quality of the sound. People with speech disorders have troubles using some speech sounds, which can also be a sign of a delay. Problems with communications and perception differ in nature and severity from person to person. Some of these difficulties are dysarthria, apraxia and echolalia.
