    I am taking a Masters class and I was going to do some research on communication disorders. What I was thinking about looking at were types of conidtions where the student can't talk or have a hard communicating vocally. The only trouble I am having is I am not sure what these specific types of disorders would be called. If anyone can help let me know.

    Let's see. There is aphasia, apraxia, Orofacial myofunctional disorders, Paradoxical Vocal Fold Movement, Right Hemisphere Brain Damage, Selective mutism, Spasmodic dysphonia, stuttering, vocal fold paralysis, autism, deafness. That is what I found so far.

    My son has Ohdo Blepharophimosis and is completely non-verbal as most of the children with the same syndrome are.

    Thanks for the replies I substituted in a special education class yestersday, and was in the same situation where the little boy could not communicate. I wanted to focus some research on that, so thanks again.
