    • speech rhythm and fluency problems, such as stuttering
    • voice quality problems, such as inappropriate pitch or harsh voice
    • problems understanding and producing language
    • social communication delays, such as following rules for conversation and understanding nonliterate and/or ambiguous language
    • cognitive communication impairments, such as attention, memory, and problem-solving disorders
