Online Speech Therapy for Articulation Disorders in Children

Have you ever wondered if your child is saying their sounds correctly for their age? Does your child leave off the beginning or ending sound of words or substitute one sound for another?


Parents often think their child will outgrow their speech delay. In some instances, that is possible, but in most situations, that is not the case. Don’t wait to get valuable help for your child. The longer you wait to address the speech delay, the more significant the impact on your child’s speech.


Articulation & Phonological Processing

An articulation disorder occurs when a child makes sounds with incorrect placement, timing, pressure, speed, or coordination of the articulators. The result is a mispronounced sound, making it difficult to understand. 

Phonological disorders are similar but occur when the child has trouble combining certain sounds used in communication.

There are many ways sounds can be misarticulated. Some speech errors are developmentally appropriate. However, others are not.

The best treatment for articulation errors and phonological disorders is speech therapy by teletherapy.


Pediatric Speech Therapy Near Me partners with pathology’s therapists hold degrees in communication sciences and have completed rigorous post-graduate training to provide the best therapy methods available for your child.

Our nationally certified team of speech-language pathologists are experts in pediatric articulation and phonological disorders. We have a strong understanding of the research on various articulation therapy techniques.

Generally speaking, speech pathologists think of articulation therapy as a systematic approach to master target speech sounds. We will use this systematic approach to teach the target speech sound(s). We will begin by targeting sounds in isolation, syllables, words, phrases, sentences, and finally, in connected speech. We will provide necessary cues (visual, verbal, tactile) for the proper placement of articulators (lips, tongue, teeth, jaw, and velum).

Since each child is unique and will respond differently to therapy methods, we will create a treatment program tailor-made for your child’s needs and adapt their therapy as needed. Home practice will be necessary to ensure carryover. We will strive to make every therapy session feel productive.


We’ll take the time to properly diagnose your child’s articulation issues.

We have a variety of tools that we can use to identify your specific areas of need. They include standardized and informal tests and an assessment of the mouth’s physical structure and muscles used for speech. We will make the assessment process fun for your child. Speech-language evaluations may include a parent interview, including a review of your child’s developmental, educational (if age-appropriate) medical history, clinical observation, and interviews with the child and the caregivers. With a proper diagnosis, your child can receive articulation therapy to reduce or eliminate articulation issues.

We care about helping facilitate measurable improvements.

At Connected Speech Pathology, we believe that goals should be centered around your child, family, and child’s interests. We understand the best, most engaging ways to work with children of all ages. Treatment goals will be set to create meaningful outcomes that achieve real-life improvement. With proper intervention, your child can overcome their speech problem and learn to pronounce sounds and words more clearly.

Wondering how many therapy sessions your child will need?

The trajectory of speech therapy interventions is different for each person, and there is no exact amount of time that applies to everyone. Typically, a treatment plan is established over 6-month increments. Sometimes articulation therapy can extend for longer periods depending on progress, diagnosis, and severity of the disorder. You can expect your child to participate in a re-evaluation every 6-9 months to determine if therapy goals need to be revised and monitor progress. Since each child is unique and will respond differently to therapy methods, we will create a treatment program tailor-made for your child’s needs and adapt their therapy as needed. Home practice will be necessary to ensure carryover.


Family-Centered Coaching

At Exceptional Teletherapy, we use Family-Centered Coaching (also known as Parent Coaching) to show you what to do and say, how to talk, and listen to your child. Our speech-language pathologists are experts in working with caregivers and very young children (as young as two years old) using simple telehealth technology. 

Learn more about our Early Intervention service for parents with children as young as two years old.

Family-Centered Coaching is a great way to engage parents and caregivers while interacting with their child in that family’s everyday routines and activities. You don’t need to put aside a particular time to teach new communication skills to your child. Your child can learn new skills from you during all the activities you do together during the week.

While most very young kids are not yet able to attend to a therapist on the screen, some may be able to as they near preschool age. If your child is ready to engage with both the therapist and the parent, there are many ways to promote language development via online speech therapy.

Treatment goals will be designed for your family and will be meaningful to your lives. Therefore, you may be much more likely to see an improvement in daily family functioning. Traditional speech therapy provides approximately 30-60 minutes of treatment per week. With Family-Centered coaching, families can implement up to 50 times that number per week!

My son has improved since it began to assist here. He loves to come here every week. Attention is perfect and convince. We had online sessions and in-person sessions. And his primary therapist, Janellis is the best.

If giving more stars were possible, I would give many more. I have two year old twins and both have been going to this place since last year and I can't describe the joy it gives me to see how far they have come. one of my babies had anxiety when sharing with unknown people and because of this, we could not go to restaurants or places with a lot of people around… and other things. In a short period of them being there, I can say that they are a totally different babies, more sociable, kind and both of them know so many new things, communicating skills and more. I want to thank all of the therapists who have been there with them, but specifically to Monica, Nicole, Stephanie, Ana and Jackie, that have been with them since day one. They are the bests therapists ever! Not only how they teach them, but because they show love and patience to them.

I have been to two other speech therapists for my son, and was dissapointed by their lack of focus and detail. Exceptional Speech Therapy was recommended by a friend, and I could not be happier. In 3 short motnhs, my child has made improvements that I was unsure would ever take place. I am very thankful for the care and concern their entire team shows, and I sleep better knowing that my son is in a better place.

My daughter started her speech therapy with therapist Evelyn Parra since December 2019 and I couldn’t be happier. When the pandemic hit and we were moved to online teletherapy I was a bit worried that not having in person therapy would affect my daughters progress but Evelyn was great during the sessions and my daughter has advanced tremendously and I’ll forever be thankful to her! Jenny has also been great and very accommodating and quick to answer any questions or concerns. I’m blessed to have found Evelyn and Exceptional speech. Highly recommend them.
