The difference between an articulation disorder and a phonological disorder

While doing research about Articulation Disorders, I began to see Phonological Disorders pop up and wondered what the difference was. The article I found focused on that very question. An articulation disorder occurs when a child (or adult) have trouble making individual speech sounds. A phonological disorder results from a difficulty in organizing speech sounds, this occurs at the cognitive level. Despite affecting different aspects of speech, it is possible for an individual to have both disorders.
