If you have a child that produces sounds incorrectly, it can be challenging to understand why this is happening. While, we know that parents are not speech therapists (nor should they feel like they need to be), it can be helpful at times to know more about what could be affecting your child's speech.
During this episode of Helping Kids Thrive, Nicole chats with Hannah Scotten, a speech language pathologist at DotCom Therapy, to provide information about speech sound errors. They talk through the 3 aspects of speech production: articulation, voice, and fluency, and give insight into how these areas affect the way a child is understood. Hannah breaks down speech sound errors and gives examples that a parent might notice. She also provides suggestions for how to help at home.
