Speech language skills are the developmental milestones most parent’s see during the first years of their child’s life. These milestones improve relationships, bonds, and assist with successful daily interactions. Some children may not develop their speech and/or language skills at the same rate as other children. This may cause speech or language delays that can affect them in communication of wants and needs, daily routines, interaction with other children/family/friends, and even interfere during the early school years. Speech sounds begin developing as early as 6 months and continue to expand with continued practice and use. Articulation is the accuracy and intelligibility of speech sounds. Phonology is associated with language processes and acquisition of sound patterns. Both articulation and phonology can be treated separately or as a dual process in children with speech and language delays.
