Phonology

Phonology is the study of the sound systems of a language. Children with a phonological impairment, or a lack of phonological awareness, appear to have disorder in the organization of the sound system.

Although their hearing is normal, they do not accurately perceive speech. Among other factors, it could be that an average speaking rate is too rapid for these children to process accurately. Their eyes glaze over and the words simply become noise. Teachers can provide the most productive remediation by listening carefully and analyzing students' responses verbatim.
