WHAT IS DYSGLOSIA?

Dysglossia is an alteration of the articulation of the phonemes caused by some anomalies, physical injuries or some malformation in the organs of speech: lips, tongue, palate, etc; and of non-neurological origin.

CAUSES OF DYSGLOSIA

The causes of dysglossia can be multiple, the most common being:

  • Congenital malformations
  • Growth disorders
  • Peripheral paralysis or trauma

TREATMENT OF DYSGLOSIA

In the treatment of dysglossia, the speech therapist usually begins to work after a clinical intervention, generally surgical, that restores or corrects the affected organ. With this intervention, the person is provided with an adequate anatomical base so that they can articulate correctly. After this, the speech therapist can begin to act on the affected and corrected area to give it strength, mobility and control .

Through the different exercises that are carried out, the patient gains greater functionality in the organ or organs treated, then going on to teaching the articulation of sounds itself.

Along with dysglossia disorder, other symptoms may appear. One of them would be the refusal to speak when being aware of their difficulties when it comes to articulating, which can produce low self-esteem which, if necessary, should be worked with the support of a Psychologist . Other disorders associated with dysglossia could be: school delays, difficulties in the fluency of speech or difficulty in reading and writing, of which the Psychopedagogue would be in charge of helping the patient.
