Articulation problems are what most people think of when they here the term “speech disorder”. Articulation disorders are extremely common in children and, luckily, are often easy to correct with direct instruction and practice.
Children with articulation disorders typically have trouble saying certain sounds, such as R, L, or S that usually becomes apparent during early childhood. Other times, children will mispronounce many sounds. This type of articulation problem is more likely a phonological disorder.
Recommended games and activities are effective for working with children with a few, rather than many, error sounds.
