Articulation and phonology disorders

Articulation and phonology disorders are errors in the person's speech sounds. These may be caused by difficulty with the muscles making the sounds or difficulty with hearing and recognizing the sounds. For example a person may say 'w' for 'r' ('wabbit' instead of 'rabbit'). Lisps and tongue thrusts also fall under this category.

  1. Assessment
  2. Therapy
