Helping Your Child Master the Sounds of Speech 

Phonological DisorderDoes your child struggle to pronounce certain sounds? Perhaps they have a lisp or have difficulty mastering sounds like “r” or “l.” If you suspect your child has an articulation or phonological disorder, Bright Horizons Pediatric Speech Therapy serving Milton, GA children can help! Our experienced therapists are dedicated to helping children develop clear and understandable speech.

Understanding Articulation and Phonology Disorders

  • Articulation Disorders: An articulation disorder occurs when a child has difficulty producing specific speech sounds. This can make their speech difficult to understand. Common examples include lisps, difficulty with “r” or “l” sounds, and problems with consonant blends.

  • Phonological Disorders: A phonological disorder is a broader term encompassing difficulties with the sound system of language. Children with phonological disorders may substitute sounds (saying “wotten” instead of “rotten”), leave out sounds entirely, or add unnecessary sounds to words.

These disorders can impact a child’s confidence and communication skills. Early intervention from a qualified speech-language pathologist (SLP) is crucial for Milton children addressing these challenges and promoting healthy speech development.

Bright Horizons SLPs: Certified to Help Your Milton, GA Child’s Speech Shine

At Bright Horizons Pediatric Therapy, our team consists of certified SLPs passionate about helping children overcome speech sound disorders. All our therapists hold a degree in Speech-Language Pathology and a valid Georgia state license. Many of our therapists hold additional certifications in specific areas like:

  • Oral Placement Therapy: This approach uses visual and tactile cues to help children learn the correct placement of their tongue and lips for specific sounds.

  • Minimal Pairs Therapy: Therapists use words that differ by only one sound (such as “ship” and “sip”) to help children discriminate between sounds and produce them accurately.

During the initial consultation, our SLPs will conduct a thorough evaluation to pinpoint the specific sounds your child struggles with. This personalized approach allows us to create a customized articulation therapy plan that targets your child’s unique needs.
