"If your child needs help with speech, there is a lot you can do at home."
Speech is a motor task. Our mouths make rapid accurate movements to create the sounds that we hear as speech. When these movements are not accurate, speech is distorted and difficult to understand.
Think about learning to play piano. An instructor teaches finger positions, assigns scales to practice, and in time, you learn a song. The task is broken down, practiced, made more complex, practiced again, until you're playing a song.
Most of the time speech develops on its own with very little help. It's more natural than playing piano. Since most people don't think about how they do it, they don't know how to break it down to teach it to someone else.
It's pretty complicated, but I’ve made it simple.
In my digital course, I help parents choose a starting point and break it down into manageable bits that keep their child feeling successful and progressing. I teach you how to practice in fun, quick, efficient bursts so it’s easy to fit into busy family life.
