What is Articulation?

 

Articulation is how children pronounce sounds and words.

 

How do we know if there is a problem?

 

  • Your child may not be understood by unfamiliar listeners (eg family friends, relatives, teachers)

  • Your child leaves whole sounds out of words

  • Your child mixes up their sounds & replaces them with other sounds

  • It sounds like there is too much air coming out of their mouth

  • Your child should be able to pronounce most sounds by the age of 4 (with some exceptions)
