adult speech impediments


Adult speech impairments include any symptoms that cause an adult to have difficulty with vocal communication. Examples include slurred, slowed, hoarse, stuttered, or rapid speech.

One common speech impediment seen in children and young adults is a lisp, specifically when reciting the letter "s". To help correct your lisp, begin an exercise by first holding a mirror in front of your face so you can observe the movement of your tongue during the exercise.

Adult speech difficulties are common and come in many forms including stuttering, dysarthria, voice problems, and articulation difficulties. Often with speech therapy and some strategies many adults can improve their speech and communication skills.Author: Joe.
