Leaning Speech Sounds

Top Tips from a Therapist

Use turn taking games such as; Pop up pirate, catch the chuckle ball, Monkey Tree, or Farm stacking blocks to motivate a child to work on their speech sounds.

Encourage the child to listen out for a particular sound before taking their turn, letting them know that they should only take their turn if they hear a particular sound. This will help them learn how to distinguish between one sound and the next.

If a child is ready to practice production of a sound, these turn taking games can also be used for this, whereby teh child has to say thier new sound 3 times before they can take their turn (or a word beginning with their new sound if they are ready for that).

A Speech and Language Therapist will be able to guide you as to which specific sounds and targets to work on for each child.
