Sometimes it can be hard for others to understand what someone is trying to say if they have unclear speech. Speech refers to “how we say what we say” or the way sounds are pronounced in words.


Articulation refers to the way speech sounds are formed using our tongue, teeth, lips, jaw and vocal folds. Different sounds are expected to develop at different stages during a child's development. Some children experience speech sound delays, which involve errors in how the sound is made (articulation) and errors in sound patterns (phonology).
