What is Articulation Therapy?
Articulation therapy is speech therapy that specifically involves assessing what sounds are difficult for your child given their age level and then working with them to help successfully pronounce these sounds accurately.
Typically articulation therapy progresses from:
Correctly hearing the correct and incorrect pronouncement of a sound
Pronouncing the sound
Pronouncing the sound in syllables
Pronouncing the sound in words
Pronouncing words in phrases
Pronouncing words in sentences
Pronouncing words in conversational speech
An essential part of therapy is daily practice at home. Therapy materials and ideas will be given to the child and parent to use at home.
How long is each session?
30-45 minutes once or twice a week
