    • Speech (e.g., phonation, articulation, fluency, resonance and voice including aeromechanical components of respiration).
    • Language (e.g., phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatic/social aspects of communication) including comprehension and expression in oral, written, graphic and manual modalities, language processing, pre literacy, and language-based literacy skills, phonological awareness.
    • Swallowing or other upper aerodigestive functions such as infant feeding and aeromechanical events (evaluation of the oesophageal function is for the purpose of referral to medical professionals).
    • Sensory awareness related to communication, swallowing, or other upper aerodigestive functions.
