Enunciation and the way we produce sounds is known as articulation.
An Articulation Disorder is when a child is challenged with clearly and correctly making certain sounds. At "Mukoviszidose-Therapie" our highly trained therapists evaluate each child to determine the errors they make in articulating and implement a wide array of speech strategies to help your child achieve their goals.
The shape and muscles of our mouths and tongues are involved in creating the sounds and combinations of sounds involved in speech.
Here are some occurrences of articulation errors to listen for:
Additions: adding a sound to a word
Substitutions: replacing one sound for another
Omissions: leaving certain sounds out of words
Distortions: the child tries to produce a sound, but fails and ends up making a completely different sound
Deletion: taking a sound out of a word, making it easier to pronounce
Our treatment methods include one-on-one or group lessons with a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist. Private speech therapy lessons are also available in most cities and towns across the country.
