Most children make mistakes as they are learning to say new words. A speech sound disorder occurs when mistakes persist past a certain age. There are two classes of speech sound disorders: articulation (making individual sounds), and phonological processes (sound patterns).
A phonological process disorder affects classes of sounds. For example, substituting all sounds made in the back of the mouth like “k” and “g” for those in the front of the mouth like “t” and “d” (e.g., saying “tey” for “key” or “do” for “go”).
