As a speech pathologist, I am asked questions by fellow parents all the time about their child’s speech and language development. Why doesn’t my child say his /r/? Why does my child say /t/ for /k/? Why does my child repeat things I say?
The truth is, these questions areÂ good questions. WhyÂ does your child do that? And….is it normal?
These questions prompted me to start my new series where I will try to explain why children do the things they do in relation to speech and language development, and let you know if it is normal, or not so normal.
And the cool part is, I’d love for YOU to help me with this series! Although I have many topics already planned, I’d love to hear from YOU, my readers, what things you would like me to explain. What things are your children (or maybe students or clients or children in your care) doing in their speech that makes you go “huh?”
You can let me know in the comments section of this post or shoot me an email at Katie@playingwithwords365.com and let me know what YOU want to learn about!
Check back next week for the first post in this series!
