As children develop their speech sounds they may benefit from the support of a Speech Therapist so that they can communicate effectively.
For some children they may require support with:
Speech sound production errors
Ex. Child man say "tup" for "cup"
Motor planing difficulties
Child may have issues coordinating the muscles in their mouth to consistently produce desired words
Difficulty with volume or fluency
Child may speak too loudly or softly
Child may have involuntary repetition of sounds or words
Child may present with silent pauses due to inability to produce sounds
Challenges with phonological awareness (pre-literacy skills)
For example, which word starts with /s/ sound "star" or "park"?
