Articulation

  • Articulation is the production of speech sounds. Every child will develop speech sounds at his or her own pace. Early developing sounds included; h, w, m, n, b, p, f, d, t, y, k, and g. These sounds should be developed by age 4. Later sounds, such as; ng, r, l, s, v, z, sh, ch, th, j, zh, and blended sounds, are later developing and sometimes will not be mastered until age 7. For more specific speech sound development data please see link Speech Sound Development Data.
