Throughout their development, children increase their ability to pronounce sounds, ranging from the simplest to the most difficult sounds. It is usually between 12 and 18 months when they begin to say their first words and with them their first pronunciation errors
(“mimir” instead of sleeping is one of the most common examples). This occurs because the child has not yet fully developed his linguistic ability and tends to simplify the sounds for greater ease of pronunciation.
Over time the child increases his verbal fluency, but when this does not happen we find a dyslalia or pronunciation disorder , which is the most common language disorder among children and is usually detected between the ages of 3 and 5.
When dyslalia is not detected or intervened in time, it can lead to communication problems for the child with his environment, and even, in the most serious cases, negatively influence learning.

The treatment of dyslalias in children is usually carried out through stimulation and a series of corrective exercises aimed at suppressing errors in pronunciation. You must always have the close collaboration of the family with the professional.
