Speech Sound Delay / Disorder

Speech & Language


Speech Sound Delay / Disorder

Speech sound difficulties refer to articulation and phonological impairments that arise from development conditions. Children can present with either a developmental speech delay, where development is behind but following a normal developmental pattern, or disorder of speech if the pattern is very delayed or different from the norm. Children who present with speech sound difficulties, maybe unintelligible, even to familiar listeners, so they require support in terms of their ability to communicate and interact with those around them, as well as requiring remediation of their specific difficulty.
