Children's speech development is also referred to as 'articulation'. The way a child pronounces particular sounds and words can impact upon their clarity. Some children with speech delay are difficult to understand when they talk.
A speech pathology assessment will determine if your child has developed the sounds appropriate for their age. Some sounds develop earlier and are easier for most children to produce. Like all areas of children's development, speech sounds have a general 'order' in which they develop.
Our speech pathologists are qualified and experienced in diagnosing a range of speech impairments including:
Childhood Apraxia of Speech
