Self-Awareness to develop Speech

Sometimes all you need to help a child’s speech sounds is a little self-awareness.

Turn up your volume and listen carefully to my THREE year old tell you how we make different sounds in English.

Okay, I admit that she can’t correctly make the sounds all the time. But she knows HOW.

Do you? ๐Ÿ˜‰

As a side note, this video was indeed taken in front of the Monstrosi-tree before Christmas. But, it could have been taken yesterday as we haven’t cleaned up from Christmas yet. Or vacation. Or 2007…..

  1. Great idea!! Being aware is half the battle….she sounds so cute…and a great little student too!!

    If it makes you feel any better, my tree is still not completely down…..we are about half way there…..hopefully be Saturday all Christmas things will be away!!

  2. After two and a half years of many, many speech therapy classes we ALL know how to make all the sounds.
    I am hearing impaired and so half the time I don’t always catch my son’s pronunciation mistakes, but I can look at his mouth to see if he is forming it right. I agree with you whole-heartedly that once we made him aware of what his mouth should look like when he made the sound, that made an enormous difference.
    I really love Therapy Thursday. So helpful.

  3. That was great! We haven’t done much like this, but you make it seem easy and approachable…
    I love Therapy Thursday too!

  4. Hmmm, I hope I can. I have had enough practice.

  5. Starting the brainwashing early, I see. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And, you know, Marvel Girl’s voice is too cute.

  6. I feel completely schooled!

    By the way, why clean? It’s just going to get messy again — at least that’s what my kids say.

  7. Sweet voice! I am totally unaware of such speech therapy,but there is a school near my place,and I do agree with you whole-heartedly that once we made childrens to aware of what his mouth should look like when he made the sound, that makes an enormous difference.

  8. I am beyond impressed! I need to live w/you, seriously. I’m going to e-mail you, I need some advise. I hope you have the time to help, you know… after you put the tree away ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. such sweet voices!! What a great video!

    (sigh) I need to be around little ones instead of big smelly high school ones more often… I thought of a different f-word…

  10. That is what the battle was I think with Sweet Pea but she has now figured it out.. and we are working with Little Man on this sort of stuff now.
    and Don’t worry about the tree, mine is still up also ๐Ÿ™‚ along with all the new christmas stuff still sitting in the living room since I haven’t taken the time to find places for them and all that fun stuff.

  11. You have a very smart little girl! :o)

  12. love it! and, we do not have a lick of our decorations down…even the outdoor lights are still going strong. the kids are asking why everyone else has taken theirs down…is it okay to say that we are not motivated?

  13. If only I had known to do this when my kids were toddlers. Both of them had lisps and had to be trained in speech.

  14. I learned that particular one th and f about 2 years ago while attending speech therapy with my son who said it wrong. I have another who says it wrong. I bet I end up with a 3rd. ๐Ÿ˜‰
