    Communication is the exchange of thoughts, messages, or information, as by speech, signals, writing, or behavior.
     
    Language is using communication of thoughts and feelings through a system of arbitrary signals, such as voice sounds, gestures, or written symbols. It includes rules for combining its components, such as words and a system as used by a nation, people, or other distinct community.
     
    A Speech-Language Pathologist’s job is to help students to communicate better by improving any problems they may have in language, articulation (sounds), or fluency (stuttering).
