Speech Articulation

Articulation disorder is the inability to produce sounds correctly. Sounds may be distorted, left off, or changed. By the age of 8 all sounds should be produced accurately.Both children and adults can present with an articulation disorder. Adults may present with an articulation disorder left from childhood or they may have acquired it later due to head trauma, stroke, or disease.

Articulation therapy is recommended based on the following:

  • Evaluation of speech developmental norms (refer to chart below)
  • Intelligibility (i.e., how well is the person understood by others)
  • Error patterns
  • Oral motor skills
  • Impact on social and academic performance
  • Other medical concerns

Articulation development occurs in a predictable, sequential order for all children. The following is a useful guide to compare your child’s progress:

“My son Caleb attended Autumn Oaks for about two years because he had a speech delay. During his time there his speech and pronunciation improved greatly. Mrs. Eshita (our speech pathologist) is so encouraging, patient and supportive. The entire staff is friendly and great to work with. We cannot thank Autumn Oaks enough for helping our son!!”

“My daughter has been seeing her speech therapist, Vilma Sandoval, for just a few months now and we have already seen such progress. My daughter loves going and feels so comfortable and welcomed there. The entire staff has always been very professional and kind. I highly recommend Autumn Oaks to anyone looking for a place to receive care.”
