By first grade, most children can understand about 10,000 words. Speech disorders occur when a person is unable to produce speech sounds correctly or fluently, or has problems with their voice. Language disorders occur when a person has trouble understanding others (receptive language) or sharing thoughts, ideas and feelings completely (expressive language).
Speech language pathologists ranked #35 on the U.S New Report's Top 100 jobs. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that there will be 26,000 new SLP job openings before 2022. One in every ten (28 million) Americans has some form of hearing loss.
