To be able to speak

To be able to speak

is something most of us take for granted. The same holds for eating and swallowing. The voice is the main carrier of communication in everyday life. Being able to learn and use a language makes us participants in (a) societieal lifey. But what happens when the speech organs develop abnormally during embryogenesis, or when hearing is impaired? How do communication disorders relate to brain function? What problems with swallowing, speech, language and memory characterize different neurological disorders? Which diagnostic methods are most reliable? How can voice problems be prevented? What interventions are most effective for patients with communication or swallowing disorders?
