Speech / Articulation
Children develop sounds at different ages. Sometimes speech sounds develop later than expected (articulation delays) and sometimes children have omissions or distortions of sounds. If a child has a pattern of errors such as ‘t’ for ‘k’ these are are referred to as phonological disorders.
A child may also have difficulty with the motor aspect of speech which is referred to as dyspraxia. Dyspraxia is also known as childhood apraxia or developmental verbal dyspraxia. There are different types of Dyspraxia including oral dyspraxia, verbal dyspraxia and motor dyspraxia.
