Speech Therapy for Kids



is a series of speech organ movements in the mouth to produce speech sounds in the right place with the right manner. E.g. In producing ‘u’ as in ‘food’, the lips are more rounded and tensed with the tongue retracted in higher position than in ‘foot’.

When a child has similar production pattern with typically developing children but of lower age group, he is considered to be speech delayed. A child with unclear pronunciation and error patterns that are different from that of typically developing children is considered to have articulation or phonological disorders.

Articulation disorder is problem with making the right sound such as producing the sound “b” or “w”.

Phonological disorder has to do with problem with producing sound patterns within the language(s) that a child uses.
