Speech sounds begin developing in infancy when a baby practices "talking" by babbling and jabbering. After a child begins using words, more sounds are devloped. Sounds are not always acquired normally and if that happens, a child may have an articulation or speech production disorder. There are many types of errors a child may exhibit, for example:
Sound substitutions (ex: "tat" for "cat"; "wabbit" for "rabbit")
Blend errors (ex: "wim" for "swim"; "tee" for "tree")
Omissions- leaving off a sound or syllable of a word (ex: "ca" for "car")
It is normal for children to exhibit some of these errors while they are young and acquiring sounds; however, sounds are not mastered by a certain age they may have a speech production disorder.
