I asked this question recently, when suddenly it came to me the realization that my child will soon be four years old, and he still does not pronounce all the letters. Okay, the sound r. Still does not speak cleanly, but with might and main tries, growls. But we also sound stubbornly sound like s and c.
I don’t remember exactly now, but, in my opinion, the eldest daughter at this age was already speaking cleanly. Both my husband and my family have no problems in this regard, all relatives speak correctly.
Up to five years do not worry?
I thought about it after talking with a colleague who told me that she was taking her daughter to classes with a speech therapist. She told me that in our city it is not easy to get through to this specialist – one needs to be recorded from the beginning of the school year, the other also has all the classes, and in the clinic they pay attention only to those who are bad at all. All this is not earlier than five years and a record to a specialist for the year ahead.
A colleague calmed me down with the fact that supposedly up to five years you can not worry. But, as she was told by the doctor, you can go to the reception at any age. After surfing the Internet, I found out that it is not only possible, but necessary, that there are classes for very young children. Another thing is that working with such children requires special training of doctors.
And I was so far from speech problems that I didn’t even bother, confident that I had time for everything.
After the holidays, I’ll immediately make an appointment to write to a speech therapist, but for the time being, we started practicing at home without delay. My child began to speak on time, now he quickly remembers poems, reasons, retells what he read, talks incessantly and expresses his thoughts quite well – this is fertile ground for practice. In the internet I found some exercises.
To begin with, I read to my son the story of the dragoon, beloved by me as a child, Enchanted letter. After we finished reading the story about the three variants of the word “bumps”, she asked her son: But in fact, what was on the Christmas tree? He said: Bows and balls !.
Exercises for the language
Chose a few of those that she more or less understood.
1. Make a cup of tongue.
2. Blow off the fleece from the nose, directing the air through the tongue that has come out.
3. To portray the horse.
Based on other sounds
1. We pronounce the sound ts-s-s for a long, long time. If you hide your tongue further by your teeth, you get a sound similar to w. While we are still the same with.
2. Since the son of the letter already says the letter p, I ask him to speak in a whisper. In this case, the letter w. Must. But it does not work …
No questioning! I am not inclined to lisp with children, but the son’s talk sometimes touches me so much that, jokingly, I answer him in tune. I will not.
Sculpting, drawing, and everything that develops fine motor skills, to our advantage. Here at the weekend and do.
