Language and Speech Therapy
Language and speech are different from each other. Language is a system of common rules that people utilize to share their feelings and thoughts with each other. A language should not only refer to the spoken language; the use of symbols and writing are also referred to a language. Speech is a system in which the rules containing these feelings and thoughts are physically produced by means of the necessary organs.
