    My Communication Challenge

    I am trying to identify why I have always had a difficult time pronouncing some words correctly. I took an undergraduate communication course where the instructor stated there is a label for people that constantly miss pronounce words. Are you able to provide me with that label? How can I get some help?

    Thank you.

    'Dysarthria' is the term a speech pathologist or scientist would use.
    A speech pathologist/therapist is the correct person to consult.
    (It's similar word to dyslexia, discalculia, etc.)
