Articulation is the production of speech sounds which involves the accuracy in placement of the tongue, lips, and teeth. 

Phonology is the relationship between sounds that when combined in a word create meaning.  These sounds are characterized by manner and place of production (ex. /m,p,b/ are in the same class).

The development of articulation skills are an ongoing process from birth to adolescence.  The earliest sounds developed are the /p,b,m/.  Later developing sounds include the "l, r, sh, ch, j, & th". 

Articulation and phonological remediation requires specific knowledge of sound production and oral motor movements.  If you have any concerns about your child's articulation or phonological development, please contact me.

Fluency is the smoothness with which sounds, syllables, words, and phrases are joined together during oral language.  The opposite of Fluency would be Stuttering

Stuttering is a communication disorder that interferes with a person's ability to speak fluently.  It involves the repetition, prolongation, or blockage of sounds, syllables, or words.  There is no one known cause of stuttering. 

Most children go through a period of "normal dysfluency" between the ages of two-four.  This is due to the development and organization of language at this critical time in their lives.  These dyfluencies could last up to six months and vary in severity.  However, if your child is stuttering for longer than three years, please feel free to consult with me.
