Articulation Therapy


Getting Started with Articulation Therapy

Articulation refers to when a child or adult has trouble pronouncing various sounds. For example, they may delete sounds (e.g. saying “ca” for “cat”). They may also substitute sounds (e.g. “dat” for “mat”), distort sounds (e.g. thork for fork) or add sounds to words (e.g. “rhed” for “red”).

In general, as a child’s cognitive abilities develop their speech will also develop. When your child first begins to communicate, it is common for them to make errors within their speech. This is the way in which they learn and is no cause for concern. However, by the age of 3, unfamiliar people should understand about 75% of your child's speech, and by the age of 4 your child should be able to speak in general, with few to no pronunciation issues – be understood 100% of the time.


What can cause an articulation disorder?

An articulation disorder usually has a range of factors that contribute to your child’s diagnosis. These include:

  • Genetic disorders/ syndromes,
  • Developmental disorders,
  • Illness,
  • Neurological disorders.

If your child has displayed or is known to have any of the following, then they may be more prone to developing an articulation disorder. It is important to note that during development, each child develops at their own pace. As a result, if your child is showing some signs of articulation in early development, this is no cause for concern. However, it may be best to check them with a doctor to ensure any potential disorders can be treated.


Therapy Sessions

With all language disorders in children it is crucial that treatment begins as early as possible. As children grow, they continue to develop new cognitive pathways for speech and language which become more difficult to change later in life. SpeechAim offers therapy for children with speech impediments to help improve their language abilities from an early age.

Speechaim will provide a dedicated language therapist who will work with your child one-on-one to build their speech sounds. By working one-on-one your child will have the opportunity to develop their speech and language abilities in a safe and relaxed environment.
