Speech-Sound Development and Strategies
Audience: Parents/Caregivers

Does your child have some speech-sound errors that impact how well they’re understood? Developing clear speech, for some children, is a gradual process. As children's speech develops, the number and types of errors they make changes. Many parents have questions about their child's speech-sound errors and what they can do to support the development of clear speech. This interactive online session, hosted by EIPS speech-language pathologists, will review what typical speech-sound development looks like and how to incorporate helpful strategies throughout your child’s day.
