Speech impediments, also referred to as speech disorders occur

when normal speech is disrupted. It can be developmental in that

most children will generally go through a stage of disfluency i.e

stammering, fronting (cat is pronounced as tat) or lisping and

gliding r (red pronounced as wed). Certain sounds develop at

different stages of childhood and that is why these developmental

errors occur. However, if these persist beyond the appropriate age,

you should seek a speech and language therapist who will diagnose

and treat the speech disorder.
