Now, keep in mind, these are not the kids who suffer with speech problems because they're tongue doesn't move correctly.
It's the kids who have faulty nervous systems that can't receive and process sounds properly who are helped by these games.
Now, the technique has moved from research labs into school systems and speech centers.
Here's how it works-- using hi-tech games, researchers stretch out the sounds and make them longer-- so the child can recognize them more easily.
As the brain is trained to recognize sounds, the games become more demanding, teaching the child to respond to sounds that are closer to normal speech.

If you suspect your child is having problems understanding sounds, communicating, following instructions or completing basic school assignments, have the child tested.
Most schools provide comprehensive hearing, speech and educational testing.

This problem isn't the kind of thing a child will simply out-grow. It's important to take care of the problem as early as possible, making necessary changes before the child starts failing or perceives himself as a failure.
