Articulation Therapy

CTSPS, Inc. uses multiple therapeutic strategies to achieve the highest degree of speech intelligibility given an individual’s specific issues.

The illustration below demonstrates the lingual to palatal position required for the production of specific speech sounds to improve pediatric and adult articulation.  Specific tongue to palate contact is required to produce clear, articulate speech.  The accurate analysis of tongue, lip and jaw movement is critical in implementing appropriate therapeutic strategies.

Our Speech-Language Pathologists are trained to consider developmental issues affecting acquisition of differentiated tongue, jaw and lip movement during speech and the age of speech sound acquisition in pediatric populations.  CTSPS, Inc. therapists use a similar approach with adult patients whose speech intelligibility may be affected by neurological conditions or surgery. 

By employing the use of standardized testing (for comparison to others), phonological analysis of conversational speech (evaluation of specific speech sounds when produced as part of conversation), and analysis of sequenced musculature movement required for articulation (the evaluation of movement of the tongue, lips and jaw during speech sound production).  CTSPS, Inc. therapists are able to provide effective treatment and efficient use of time and resources to address pediatric and adult speech disorders.

With this multi-faceted approach, CTSPS, Inc. strives to provide effective evaluation and treatment and efficient use of time and resources to address pediatric and adult speech disorders.
