Articulation Disorders

Children with articulation disorder have trouble with the motor functions required to make certain speech sounds. They can’t coordinate their lips, tongue, teeth, palate (roof of their mouth) and lungs to produce certain sounds. They may form distorted speech sounds or swap out sounds they can’t make. Articulation disorder examples include not forming the sound “th” and always using “f” instead.

Fluency

A fluency disorder is an interruption in the flow of speaking characterized by atypical rate, rhythm, and disfluencies (e.g., repetitions of sounds, syllables, words, and phrases; sound prolongations; and blocks), which may also be accompanied by excessive tension, speaking avoidance, struggle behaviors, and secondary mannerisms

Phonological Disorder

Phonological disorder is a type of speech sound disorder. Speech sound disorders are the inability to correctly form the sounds of words. 

Apraxia

Improving communication skills is the primary goal of accent modification. In many instances, this involves working on an individual’s intelligibility so that their speech is easier to understand and does not cause distraction. Accented speech can be measured using a scale that rates accentedness, intelligibility, and comprehensibility. 

Accent Reaction

Improving communication skills is the primary goal of accent modification. In many instances, this involves working on an individual’s intelligibility so that their speech is easier to understand and does not cause distraction. Accented speech can be measured using a scale that rates accentedness, intelligibility, and comprehensibility. 

Our speech therapy sessions are offered in both small groups (2-4 learners) and individually (1:1)
