Provide your parents with what they need to work on speech sounds at home.
Teaching children speech sounds at home can be extremely effective and easy. Daily interaction and stimulation is what it takes for speech and language skills to develop and for progress to soar. Better Speech, Language and Social Communication are truly the best gifts any parent can give their child.
“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.
