Let’s talk about how we can work together to improve your child’s articulation skills.
Help Your Child Speak
Clearly and Confidently
As your child starts learning to speak, they may use certain speech sounds that are not correct for the word they are saying. While this is usually part of speech development, some find it more difficult than others to overcome them.
Some children also develop speech sound or articulation disorders. Speech therapy focused on articulation helps your child learn proper pronunciation through a gradual progression from letters to sentences to conversations.
Is Proper Pronunciation Important?
Articulation can help your child communicate more clearly and accurately. Proper pronunciation will reduce the need to repeat themselves and will help motivate them to speak with others.
Early intervention for speech sound and articulation disorders once they are observed is essential. You may recognize the articulation challenges when your child shows these signs:
has trouble connecting more than one or two sounds
often only uses or prefers vowel sounds/open-mouthed sounds
has unclear sounds compared to their peers
produces a lisp at the age of 3 and a half or 4
Helping with pronunciation is a personalized program and our speech-language pathologists will assist in helping your child with their particular challenges. You may also book a free consultation to discuss more on your child’s specific needs.
