Articulation Disorders

Articulation Disorders: Introduction

Articulation Disorders: Errors made in speech sounds that consistently occur irrespective of the context. Examples of articulation disorders includes lisps, substitution of the "y" sound for "l" and difficulty with blends involving r, l or s (e.g. brick, clip, slap). The anomaly is common in young children but if it persists after the age of five, the condition needs to be examined closer. The anomaly may be caused by such things as facial muscle weakness. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Articulation Disorders is available below.
