Production (Verbal) (3C)

Verbal production problems are difficulties using speech to communicate coherently.
Students who have difficulty with verbal production cannot articulate their thoughts well. Difficulty with verbal production is not about word production (e.g. stuttering or word finding) but involves expressing thoughts in a well-organized, understandable manner. Stress can exacerbate difficulties with verbal production. Verbal production problems may impact students' academics when speeches and presentations are a required part of the curriculum.

Formal Diagnostics

A physician's diagnosis of a medical condition connected to verbal production problems, or a speech pathologist's assessment, would be appropriate documentation.
