Speech Therapy at Home

You know how enthusiastically I recommend the Signing Time DVDs as a resource for developing expressive and receptive language skills in young children, even those whose hearing is normal.
I’ve written, too, about how useful I am finding the Visual Phonics program as an aide to helping Wonderboy (3 1/2 years old, moderate hearing loss) expand the range of consonant sounds he can make.
I’m always on the lookout for useful resources, and this website looks promising: Mommy Speech Therapy. Posts range from practical advice for helping a child work on specific sounds to informative discussions about working with speech professionals, getting a diagnosis, and when to be concerned about things like lisps, pacifiers, and thumb-sucking.

Thank you for that great link! Both my older girls have speech therapy for articulation problems (most notably /k/ and /g/ sounds and that link started with that topic.

This looks like a great website, Melissa! Thanks so much for sharing it. My 4.5 yo dd has some minor speech issues (a lisp and trouble with the r sound) and I’ve put off getting her evaluated thinking we could resolve it at home (as we did with my older daughter). This will be very helpful.

I’ve been looking forever for a visual phonic program for my youngest! Thank you thank you! He’s a visual learner and he has a speech and language delay and CAP. That site is awesome!
