Children are known to have speech difficulties when they encounter problems forming sounds to speak, interact and express their feelings and thoughts with others.
Children who have speech difficulties fall below their age-appropriate level of speech and display the following in all settings:
- find it hard to tell the difference between speech sounds
- delay in articulation of sounds
- have difficulty combining sounds to form words
- have difficulty saying the sounds in words
- find it difficult to say longer words
- speech is unclear for age
- have difficulty with the prosody of language e.g. tone, intonation, rhythm and stress
