Speech Therapy for Correct Pronunciation

Smartys English Academy

A speech therapist is a specialist with training in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of speech, voice, and language disorders who works with people, unable to make speech sounds or cannot make them clearly. They also work with people, who stutter, have fluency and rhythm problems, inappropriate pitch, or harsh voice and speech quality problems. At MLS speech therapist sets up a program of speech exercises to reduce this form of accent problems. Speech therapist keeps careful records on the evaluation and progress of students, often developing and implementing individualized programs.


Although a speech therapist’s job is not physically demanding, it does require patience and compassion, as progress may be slow and halting. Speech therapy is a painstaking process, but it can be as rewarding as it is frustrating.


Tremendous attention to detail and sharp focus are put in the evaluation of the student’s progress. Speech therapists, like other professionals, carefully diagnose problems and if necessary call upon the advice of other teachers. To distinguish the need for the professional input of specialists is critical to the therapist’s success. Therapists also monitor the progress of students, eliminate certain programs, and introduce others that are more effective.


List of the pronunciation symbols used at MLS is given here in the column headed Symbols. Next to each symbol, in the column headed Examples, is a word or words chosen to illustrate how the symbol is pronounced. The letters that correspond in sound to the symbols are printed in boldface type.


The ability to make informed decisions that may define the success and failure of any individual program is a skill that can only come with years of experience. At MLS we have people with sufficient experience to take care of all your needs.
