A speech disorder is characterised as a child having difficulty pronouncing the sounds in words. This can make their speech difficult to understand. I provide support for speech delays and disorders including articulation, phonology and motor speech disorders.
A child may need speech therapy if they show;
- Delays in the development of speech,
- Difficulty being understood by others,
- Inability to spontaneously produce words and phrases,
- Deletion of consonant sounds at the beginning or end of words
