Phonological (speech sound) Difficulties

Phonological delays and/or disorders refer to the development of the sound system which may either be developing at a slower rate than expected, or may not be following the typical developmental pathway. Children may have whole groups of sounds which have not developed.

 

Targeted intervention can provide your child with the opportunity to accelerate their sound development. Improving their knowledge of the sound system and their speech skills, as well as improving how easily your child can be understood, can have positive effects with regards to school readiness and confidence.
