Speech Sound Development - What's normal?
This picture explains what age your child should have their speech sounds.
Overall, family should be able to understand your child by age XX.
Strangers should be able to understand your child by age XX.
Not sure? Here's an easy at home screen:
For 1 week, write down the words your child says that aren't clear or have the wrong sounds. You may notice patterns or certain sounds that are always missed.
Alternatively, there are free apps that are useful screeners. Sometimes screeners use different ages for different sounds, but it will give you an idea where you child is at vs where they should be. Apps do not replace speech therapy and won't correct your child's speech, but they are can use useful.
Was your child dismissed or denied school speech therapy, yet they still have speech sound errors? Sometimes children no longer qualify for school therapy, yet they would still benefit from speech therapy to improve their speech sounds and the clarity of their speech.
