A child is brought to the speech therapist because she does not pronounce high-pitched sounds (like "s"). Name the sensory organ that is most likely the problem and what area of the organ is being affected?

She also experiences extreme dizziness and loss of balance when she plays on the merry-go-round or does somersaults. Is the same sensory organ causing this problem as well? Briefly explain why or why not.

    Although I am not a speech therapist or ENT physician, the first might be problems in the end of the organ of Corti in the cochlea that responds to high frequencies.

    The second problem is most likely the semicircular canals.

    However, you might consider if there are problems in the fluids that are common to both organs.
