Articulation and Motor Speech
The way we pronounce words has a significant impact on our success as communicators. The way we sound affects not only how well we are understood, but our listeners' perceptions as well as our self confidence. At Bowden Voice & Speech we offer articulation and motor speech therapy to children and adults.
