Most children make some mistakes with their sounds as their speech skills develop and as as they learn to say new words. A child may have an articulation disorder if these errors continue past the expected age. Speech sound disorders include problems with articulation (making sounds) and phonological processes (sound patterns).
For instance, many young children sound like they are making a "w" sound for an "r" sound (e.g., "wabbit" for "rabbit") or a 'f' sound for a 'th' sound eg: “fumb” for “thumb”. Some children may leave sounds out of words, such as "nana" for "banana" or swap sounds in words eg. "hospital" for "hopsital"
Speech therapists are able provide treatment to improve the articulation of individual sounds or reduce errors in the production of sound patterns. Our practice offers one-on-one therapy sessions to assist with speech disorders.
