    The following thesis researches the relation between a child's speech and his socio-emotional development and their interconnection. Theoretical part of the paper serves to present some characteristics of development in the childhood stage and the influence of the child's entire life array on it. I continue by exposing important topics within speech and socio-emotional development. First, I present different phases of speech development, the process of acquiring communication skills and difficulties which may appear considering language and speech communication. Within the topic of socio-emotional development I define a childs's socio-emotional competence, stressing the meaning of emotional regulation. In the first part, based on already existing research on the topic, mainly the relation between speech and socio-emotional development is described. In the empirical part of the thesis I define in what way the speech and socio-emotional correlation is apparent by analyzing conversations with children who stand out in only one or both areas of interest. One of the main revelations is that most children, whose speech abilities are weaker, show difficulties in recognizing, adressing and controling negative emotions in conflict situations. For some children inability in verbal expression and not understanding often lead to negative emotions. Verbal skills prove to be very important in social context and popularity in peer groups. Children with speech disorders show causes in their home environment, such as divorce of their parents, unbalanced relationship among their parents, emotinal negligence, illness of a parent.
