Speech Sound Disorder

When an individual has noticeably different speech from the majority of individuals within their community, it is likely a speech sound disorder. Although speech disorders typically occur in children, they can also affect adolescents and adults. A speech disorder can impact social relationships and can also interfere with acquisition of reading and spelling abilities due to the letter-sound associations required for these processes.

UTHSC offers comprehensive evaluation and treatment services for children, adolescents, and adults with speech sound disorders, tailored to the individual needs of each patient. Therapy settings are typically individual sessions.
