Do you have difficulty pronouncing certain sounds? Do you have trouble giving great public speeches? Do others have a difficult time understanding you, but you're not sure why?
Both children and adults can have speech disorders. In children, speech problems often result from developmental delays or differences, or from unknown causes. Some adults continue to speak with a disordered pattern that was not properly remediated during childhood. Speech problems can also result from illnesses, accidents and neurological problems. Speech sounds may be distorted, substituted by other sounds or omitted. The fluency, rhythm and intonation of speech may also be affected.
