I have received an unusual number of questions recently about the effectiveness of articulation therapy with adults.
Where is this notion that articulation therapy cannot be done with adults coming from?
Articulation therapy is EASIER with adults because they can understand what you are talking about and they usually are highly motivated to change. The only time this is not the case is when the adult client has a significant cognitive or neuromuscular disorder, and/or when the therapist does not know how to fix these errors.
