• Around the House: Help your child identify items in and around your house that begin (or end) with their target sounds. Have him/her name the items, following your model, if needed. Depending on your child’s ability level, he/she can create simple sentences with the words, as well.

    Guess what?:  The parent describes the targeted words and the child guesses the word (for example, “It is a yellow animal that quacks”).

    Provide appropriate models for misarticulations through revision. For example, Child: “That’s my tar.” Parent: “Yes, that car is yours.” Emphasize through vocal inflection the sounds he/she produced in error.

    Book Time: Choose books that are interesting to your child and help them find pictures or words that start with the sounds they are working on. You may have them just listen as you say the words clearly for them to hear, or you may have them try saying the words as well. You can also look up books on YouTube to listen to. Book list below:
