An articulation disorder refers to a child’s difficulty to saying speech sounds. Every child makes speech errors as they are developing their speech and language skills. An articulation and phonological disorder occurs when mistakes continue past a certain age. An articulation (speech) delay is diagnosed by a speech language pathologist.
