There is no better speech language pathologist that provides oral motor therapy in Manhattan than Stacey Miller, SLP. Our speech language pathologist understands that although these oral motor symptoms are physical, there is often a neurological component at play as well. There are two main, common disorders having to do with oral-motor issues. The first is Developmental Spraxia of Speech (DAS), or dyspraxia of speech. This disorder makes it difficult for children to form words because of the difficulties they are facing in manipulating and controlling the different parts of their mouths. The second oral motor disorder that is common in children is actually a group of disorders, known as articulation disorders. Tendencies that result from articulation disorders are lisps, speaking too quickly, and substituting one sound for another.
