Articulation therapy aims to develop clear speech production so children can effectively communicate with their friends and family. Without the appropriate intervention, articulation errors can persist and negatively impact the child’s reading and writing development. A Sound Beginning’s experts are able to quickly assess a person’s speech production, identify errors, and develop a treatment plan in order to improve articulation and overall speech confidence.
A child presenting with an articulation disorder may be deleting, substituting, or distorting sounds while they speak. Oftentimes, this results in the child not being able to effectively communicate his wants and needs, leading to frustration. Through different techniques and approaches, an SLP is able to teach a child how to correctly produce their disordered sounds. Therapy begins by producing sounds in isolation and working towards generalizing the correct production into the conversation. Private articulation therapy at A Sound Beginning ensures that the child receives the intervention needed to reach his or her full potential!
