“I need a poon”, “I see a tar”, “I said top” are some of the most common speech errors heard between 2 and 4 years of age. Leaving off part of an S cluster is also one of the easiest speech errors to fix and will often have a huge impact on how well your child can make himself understood. Anytime sounds are left off of words the words become much harder to understand. Correcting S clusters can reduce frustration and also lead to the correction of other speech errors.
This guide will help parents decide if they need to work on S blends and provides step by step ideas and materials for working on S blends at the start of words. All of the ideas and materials are based on my 23 years of experience working with children and families as a Speech-Language Pathologist.
