Top 5 Tips to Help Your Child Speak More Clearly

  1. Don’t always have the child correct the sound they mispronounced.  Instead, repeat the word making the sound they mispronounced louder and longer than the others in the word.
  2. Read books with the target sound in them (e.g. Good night moon for  the “g” sound).
  3. Read books and change the names of the characters to include sounds they frequently mispronounce. 
  4. Create special word lists of 5 mispronounced words and have the child only correct those words. 
  5. Practice the target sound for short periods of time (i.e. 5 min) throughout the day (e.g. say the sound as you are cleaning up).
