As a speech therapist, people always ask me how to assess whether or not their children have speech and language disorders.
Articulation is how speech sounds are made. When a child deletes a sound, substitutes changes, or adds a sound, they may have a speech disorder or a phonological disorder, depending on their age. These errors make it hard for a child to be understood by others.
