As a child with FAS progresses into preschool physical, cognitive and behavioral abnormalities are more noticeable. These children are not the average weight and height compared to the children at the same age level. Cognitive manifestations is another problem with children who have FAS. "Studies have found that preschoolers with FAS generally score in the mentally handicapped to dull normal range of intelligence" (Phelps, 1995, p. 205). Children with FAS usually h ave language delay problems during their preschool years.
These children tend to have “a more restricted vocabulary, grammatical errors in verb and tense agreement, and errors in word usage” (Kalivoda). Another website titled “Deaf Literacy: Research Highlights” from the Elementary and Middle Schools Technical Assistance Center, EMSTAC, provides information on several problems deaf students experience when learning fundamentals of the English language. For example, “students’ lack of exposure to spoken language makes teaching traditional sound-letter correspondence difficult” and “deaf students whose first ... ... middle of paper ... ...decrease the amount of mistakes.

Dyslexia is a congenital disorder characterized by unexpected difficulty learning to decode and spell words in relation to one’s verbal intelligence, motivation, and educational opportunities (Gray E. S, 2008). People have many misconceptions regarding dyslexia which includes visual impairment, low IQ, dyslexia is curable, and this learning disability affects males more often than females. Indicators of dyslexia change over time since it is a process of developmental. It is difficult to identify children with dyslexia; however it becomes more prominent as they progress in school. Experts agree that dyslexia is a learning disability that affects language processing and that it does not occur because of low intelligence, lack of motivation, poor instruction, vision, or hearing problems, cultural disadvantages, or other extrinsic.

They stumble or struggle with words. When they are reading and they may skip over word they don’t know or cannot pronounce. Dyslexic children have different reading patterns than other children. (Hotz) There reading patterns are slower than others and they do not read as fluent as well reading children. Children have problems with spelling as well because they don’t know what letters to put with the sounds of the words.
If a student has an issue with articulation, they most likely then have difficulty speaking clearly and at a normal rate (Turkington, 2003). When they produce words, they may omit, substitute, or even distort sounds, hindering their ability to talk. Students who lack in ways of expression have problems explaining what they are thinking and feeling because they do not understand certain parts of language. As with all types of learning disabilities, the severity can range. Two extreme cases of expression disorders are dysphasia and aphasia, in which there is partial to no communication at all (Greene, 435, 2002).
This disorder often causes the child to become withdrawn from their classrooms and other age-appropriate activities which effectively alienates the child from the social environment even more. The first symptoms of Selective Mutism are usually noticeable between the ages of 1 to 3 years (Kumpulainen, 1998, p. 24). However, it is usually not recognized until the child begins school and is requested to respond verbally and/or interact in social situations. Sometimes, even then, the child is vie... ... middle of paper ... ... disorders: DSM-5. (5th ed.).
One paper edited by Judith Goodman and Howard.C.Nusbaum looks at various authors’ views on this phenomenon. One approach looks at how Children are recurrently unsuccessful in producing functional morphemes during their earliest utterances. This information was used as a primary indication for a view that children’s initial representation of language is based on referential content words, meaning that when children hear utterances they instantaneously search for familiar content words which were learnt in isolation, and therefore treat function morphemes as unfamiliar noise, disregarding them completely. Goodman and Nusbaum looked at evidence demonstrating that children do in fact regard function morphemes when listening to utterances although they are still incapable of consistently producing them when speaking. Functional morphemes belong under the category of functional elements, which includes determiners, pronouns, quantifiers, negation markers, complementizers and inflection.
