Helping your child be better understood
A child may present with unclear speech for a variety of reasons. By age 4 a child is expected to be intelligible 90% of the time to an unfamiliar listener. When a child has a speech difficulty, they are generally aware of it. Children who speak differently from other children know that they do, and this can significantly erode their confidence. We provide speech therapy to address a variety of speech related difficulties including articulation and phonological delays, motor speech disorders, Childhood Apraxia of Speech, as well as issues such as lisping and turning Rs into Ws.
