For sample children 3 and over who have been given a diagnosis for a voice, swallowing, speech, or language problem, CVLDIAGSPCH reports whether the child was given a diagnosis for a speech problem.

Persons who answered affirmatively were then asked for the diagnosis or reason given; persons could report multiple causes. The causes for the speech problems are reported in the following variables:

: hearing loss

: developmental speech sound disorder

: stuttering

:congenital malformation/birth defect

: genetic syndrome

: neurological disease

: head/neck injury

: cancer in head, neck or throat

: something else

According to the Field Representative's Manual, speech disorders are "any defect or abnormality that prevents an individual from communicating by means of spoken words."


There are no comparability issues with this variable.
