Abstract Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922) is best known for his invention of the telephone. This article describes his work in speech-language pathology - then referred to as elocutionary teaching. A. G. Bell based his articulation and stuttering therapies on phonetics, using his father’s Visible Speech Alphabet to illustrate to his students the placement of articulators during speech sound production.

Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922) est bien connu pour son invention du téléphone. Cet article décrit son travail en orthophonie – alors connu sous le nom d’enseignement de l’élocution. A.G. Bell a fondé ses thérapies de l’articulation et de la correction du bégaiement sur la phonétique. Il s’est servi de l’alphabet visuel du langage de son père pour montrer à ses élèves le placement des articulateurs pour produire un son.
