Identifying Speech Disorders

Every child is unique, and so are their speech patterns. While some irregularities are part of normal development, persistent difficulties may indicate a speech disorder. Common speech disorders in children include articulation disorders, phonological disorders, stuttering, and language disorders. Identifying these challenges early is key to providing targeted support.

Understanding Articulation and Phonological Disorders

Articulation disorders involve difficulties in pronouncing sounds, while phonological disorders relate to challenges in understanding and utilizing sound patterns. Our virtual pediatric speech therapy sessions at Ellen Frank Speech Therapy focus on tailored exercises to address these specific needs, promoting clearer and more effective communication.

Navigating Stuttering with Empathy

Stuttering, characterized by disruptions in the normal flow of speech, can be a source of stress for both children and their families. Our virtual platform allows us to create a supportive environment where children can comfortably work on strategies to enhance fluency. We believe that building confidence is as crucial as refining speech skills, fostering a positive relationship with communication.
