Types of speech impediments?
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.
