Practicing your child's speech sounds at home can help them make quicker progress. It's important to make sure you know which sound, level, and sound position your child is practicing before working at home. If you are unsure, reach out to your child's speech-language pathologist and ask them!
Example: Sound: /s/ Level: Sound (/s/)
Phrase (a big seal) Sentence (Sammy sat on the green chair) Story/Multiple Sentences (This is Sam. Sam put on his sunglasses and went to the beach. At the beach, Sam saw his friend Sally...) Conversation (listening and practicing /s/ in a natural conversation with your child to make sure s/he is generalizing their sounds) Sound Position: initial /s/ (sad), medial /s/ (messy), or final /s/ (bus) position
