lisp therapy for adults

Articulation is the process of how we produce words and speech sounds by coordination of the lips, teeth, tongue, palate, voice and more.

Many adults seek articulation therapy to correct speech sound disorders and differences that began in childhood and have persisted through adulthood, as is commonly seen with lisps and "R" errors. Some adults have acquired a speech problems following stroke, brain injury, or a change in the articulators following oral surgery.

Helpful tip: if you're an adult who lisps, it's NOT too late! Read more here about types of lisps.

Our clinicians are trained and experienced in providing adult articulation therapy. Articulation therapy for adults is different than for children as adults learn and apply information differently. Adults do best with explicit learning of sound production, auditory training, direct treatment, drill practice, and a systematic approach to application to reduce associated fears and anxieties that have developed in relation to having a speech  difference.
