• Articulation involves how phonemes (sounds) are produced in isolation, at the word level, in phrases/sentences, and during structured and unstructured conversation levels. 

    From the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association:

    "Most children make some mistakes as they learn to say new words. A speech sound disorder occurs when mistakes continue past a certain age. Every sound has a different range of ages when the child should make the sound correctly. Speech sound disorders include problems with articulation (making sounds) and phonological processes (sound patterns)."
