Inability to speak effectively is a dilemma to anyone. In fact, experiencing difficulty in speech communication can cause some individuals inconceivable frustrations. Abnormal speaking refers to a speech manner that deviates from the normal speech norms of any society. Such an unusual speech can be characterized by stammering, mispronunciation, voice defects and so on. The listed characteristics are called speech disorders. Abnormal speaking attracts some penalties to the speaker. The penalties are usually very disturbing to the speaker that undertaking some therapeutic measures becomes inevitable. Communication partners strategy is a speech correction approach which makes use of a good speaker partnering with an abnormal speaker for the purpose of improving the latter's poor speech manners. This paper therefore highlights how the two partners will go through some therapeutic procedures and achieve their goals of attaining some good speaking behaviour.
