Speech Therapy -> Intelligibility -> Prosody Errors

Prosody Errors

Prosody errors are errors in the rhythm, stress and intonation of speech. For example, errors may be the raising of a voice at the end of a sentence when not asking a question or using equal stress on all syllables of words (i.e., monotone). Children with apraxia often have difficulties saying the same word with different inflection to show their emotions or whether they are asking a question or saying a statement.
