Sound of Speech Therapy
DOES MY CHILD NEED SPEECH THERAPY?
Speech sound disorders are fairly common! If you think your child may not pronounce sounds or words correctly, or if you or others have difficulty understanding your child, he or she might benefit from further evaluation and speech therapy.
Errors you might hear:
difficulty with specific sounds, such as the R sound, L sound,or S sound (e.g., lisp)
sound replacements, such as “tat” for “cat” or “tay” for “say”
deletions, such as “poon” for “spoon” or “ba-” for “ball”
Speech errors can impact:
reading and spelling skills
the ability to be understood by others
overall confidence in social interactions
