How Speech Occurs
Speech occurs when air flows from the lungs, up the windpipe (trachea) and through the voice box (larynx). This causes the vocal cords to vibrate, creating sound. Sound is shaped into words by the muscles controlling the soft palate, tongue and lips.
Do you have communication, swallowing and voice difficulties? Our speech therapists assist children and adults who face challenges in understanding or using language, incorrect speech-sound production, stuttering, voice problems or difficulties with eating or swallowing.
