Articulation Disorders

An estimated  2-25% of preschool-age children experience articulation disorders.

Academic implications:

  • Articulation disorders may negatively affect a child's phonological awareness, spelling, and reading skills.

  • Untreated articulation disorders can lead to decreased self-esteem and social isolation for children.

Early Intervention is Key

Early intervention can significantly improve a child's chances of academic success, reducing the need for remediation.
