Tongue Ties Affect Speech

August 1, 2017


The attached article discusses delayed speech in children.  So many of the symptoms they identify can be caused by an undiagnosed tongue tie.  In the case of the child in the article, a tongue tie was not discovered until he was 10 years old.  So many years of effort spent fighting a mechanical attachment to the floor of his mouth that could have been corrected in infancy.  


The article lists the following items to watch for -- ones that could be caused by a tongue I have highlighted:

       Language delay

       Articulation delay

       Tongue tie

      Voice disorders


      Apraxia (child cannot purposefully imitate a sound)


      Hearing issues

      Feeding difficulties

      Tongue thrust

      Sleeping disorders, including snoring

      Dyslexia (reading disorders)

      Brain injury


All the best,

Leslie Haller
