What challenges do learners with speech and language difficulties?

What is the effect of speech and language difficulties?
Language and speech impairments can negatively impact a child’s social life and academic performance. Oftentimes these children are bullied by their peers, which then leads to social awkwardness, isolation, or behavioral trouble. 40-75% of children with a language impairment will have problems learning to read.
Their difficulties with speech may include being unintelligible due to a motor problem or due to poor learning. Sounding hoarse, breathy or harsh may be due to a voice problem. Stuttering also affects speech intelligibility because the child’s flow of speech is interrupted.
