I have often heard that some children do not want to talk for a long time, including this problem my husband had as a child. However, I hoped that my daughter would go to me and start talking earlier. Despite the fact that I worked with her, took her to the school of early development, my daughter did not want to talk for a long time, in every way she simplified the process of speech.
My daughter spoke half a word or replaced some parts of words with comfortable sounds. I could not understand what it is connected with.
The main causes of speech problems
Found on the Internet a lot of reasons for the delay of speech:
– lack of demand for speech, that is, with the child or do not speak or guess his wishes
– delayed maturation of cells of the nervous system, which are responsible for the development of speech
– brain damage
– hearing loss
After reading about these reasons, I realized that it was hereditary, apparently, from the Pope there was a dislike for conversation. However, in class, my teachers pointed out my mistakes. I constantly guessed what my daughter said. This can not be allowed, we must try to force the child to speak.
Ways to develop speech
I used various techniques for the speedy development of speech, we shifted the beans and the colors, and put the matches. Soon the daughter began to speak, but there were violations. She often replaced sounds, although her hearing was fine.
Many people convinced me that it was worth the wait, but after three years I went to a speech therapist. Literally a month of classes helped us speak four-syllable words, the daughter spoke out the letters perfectly. Speech therapist noted that there are no problems with the speech apparatus, but phonetic hearing suffers.
Perhaps I spoke too quickly, and my daughter began to confuse some letters. Standard set – instead of Ш – С, instead of Р-Л. All this was quickly corrected with phonetic exercises and tongue twisters. We read out a few months for loyalty, although the speech therapist has already released us.
Independent work on speech
There is still a problem with the letter P, but I think that in four years this is normal and soon the daughter will learn to use it correctly in all words, she just forgets and still eases her speech. The main thing is that in the patter she speaks her clearly.
I still try to buy as much as possible developing toys that affect motor skills, such as lacing, mosaics, puzzles. We constantly learn patters and poems. We also learn to develop speech in general, describing pictures. Very good books that we have already fully passed – Tutorials. We had two of them, depending on age.
