Speech Sound Disorders

Speech Sound Disorders are communication impairments that impact a person's ability to pronounce sounds and words.  They may be referred to as articulation or phonological disorders.  It is normal for children to make mistakes with pronunciation as they are learning to speak; however, as they get older, they should be making less mistakes and their speech should sound more like an adult.  As a general rule, children should be understood approximately 50% of the time at age 2, 75% of the time at age 3, and 100% of the time at age 4.  Even though a child should be 100% understood at age 4, that is not to say that s/he may not still make a few mistakes on pronunciation.
