Speech Specialist: Accent Reduction, Pronunciation, Articulation

Phonics, or phonetics, is the practice of sounds. How a sound is produced. This is often, in English, not the way it is spelled - or how you THINK a word should be produced. The articulators help you shape the sound as the air escapes your mouth and nose. NOTE: I am not a licensed speech therapist. See Suzie's full profile
