Speech-Sound Development
By the time children reach the age of seven years, they’re usually making all of the speech sounds of their first language. As children's speech develops, the number and type of errors they make changes. Many parents have questions about whether their child's speech-sound errors are typical or whether they should be concerned. This interactive session, hosted by two EIPS speech-language pathologists, will provide information about the progression of speech-sound development and the strategies caregivers can use to support this development.
