Articulation refers to how a person sounds when they speak. An articulation disorder or a speech sound disorder might mean a person is distorting a specific sound when they are talking, replacing a sound with a different sound, or leaving out certain sounds altogether. Clear articulation also requires correct placement within the oral cavity while speaking. Our teeth, tongue, lips, palate, and jaw all play a role in helping to us produce sounds clearly. Poor articulation skills may be evident in a child who experiences the following:

  • People ask “what?” frequently when he or she is speaking
  • The family understands the child, but unfamiliar listeners do not
  • The child becomes frustrated when trying to communicate but is unsuccessful
  • You notice the child’s mouth is always open or his or her tongue is always out/visible
  • Specific sounds are absent or unclear in the child’s speech
