Misarticulation

What is Misarticulation?

Misarticulation refers to an error in articulation, which can result in speech sound distortions or substitutions. This difficulty can affect the clarity and intelligibility of the speech. It can manifest in various ways, such as substituting one sound for another (e.g., saying “wabbit” instead of “rabbit”), distorting sounds (e.g., producing a lisp or a slushy “s” sound), or omitting certain sounds altogether (e.g., leaving out the final consonants in words). These errors can impact communication, causing frustration and potential misunderstandings in social interactions among children or adults who suffer from this condition.

What causes Misarticulation? ​

Here are some underlying causes that can contribute to misarticulation:

  • Developmental Factors
  • Hearing Impairments
  • Dental or Orthodontic Issues
  • Tongue-Tie
  • Psychological factors such as Stress or Anxiety
It’s important to note that the causes of misarticulation can vary widely from person to person. Accurate diagnosis by a speech-language pathologist (SLP) is essential to determine the specific underlying factors contributing to misarticulation and to develop an appropriate intervention plan.

How can you or your child benefit from these sessions?

  • Work closely with children and adults to assess their specific speech sound errors and develop personalized treatment plans.
  • Practice articulation exercises, phonological awareness activities, and auditory discrimination training tailored to each individual's specific needs and case.
  • Provide continues guidance, encouragement, and strategies to develop clear and intelligible speech.
