A child is saying “goodbye” to mommy in the morning. A student is listening to his professor’s lecture at college. A business professional, for who English is a second language, is conveying his innovative ideas to his collegues at a meeting. Using our mouths to speak and our ears to listen is an essential part of daily life. We depend on language to communicate, but so often speech, language, and comprehension skills are taken for granted. Appropriately targeted intervention alleviates the problems caused by lagging skills or differences and leads to greater success and confidence.
