What Should I Do at Home?

What Should I do at Home?

FIRST

  • Always ask your speech-language pathologist which sounds your child is having difficulties with

THEN

  • Make or buy cards containing pairs that begin with a certain sound. Place the cards face down and try to find the matching pairs. Say the words each time you pick two cards. You can use the same cards to play “Go Fish”
  • Name the sounds your child is having difficulties making. For example, name the /t/ sound the “tickling” sound, and name the /s/ sound the “snake” sound. This will give a concept to help him/her think about and remember new sounds
  • Reciting or reading books with rhythm and rhyme will encourage them to become more aware of sounds and how they are put together. Examples include: “Jack and Jill,” “I’m a Little Teapot” and “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”
  • When your child mispronounces a word, take is an an opportunity to model a correct pronunciation of the word. For example, if he/she says, “That’s a pwane,” you respond, “Yes, it’s a plane” with slight emphasis on the /pl/ combination. Continue to repeat correct productions of the word, so he/she can learn from the right response

Your speech-language pathologist will also give you more specific activities to try at home!​
