Some children have difficulty using their tongue, teeth, lips and breath to pronounce sounds in words – this is called a speech difficulty.

 

Sounds develop in stages so there are certain sound errors that are considered ‘normal.’ A speech pathologist can assess your child’s speech and let you know if their errors are appropriate or require intervention.
