How to Help... Speech Sounds Struggles

Strategies to support children 3-8 with speech sound errors

  • 49.50 Australian dollars

Workshop description

Does your child struggle to make themselves understood? Or do they trip up on common sounds like 's', 'l', 'r', or 'th'? Speech sound struggles can be incredibly frustrating, and if they are left untreated, may affect a child's ability to learn to read and write. But waitlists to see a speech pathologist can be so long, and meanwhile, time is ticking away. We want to help! In this one-hour online workshop, we focus on providing practical strategies that parents can use with their 3 to 8 year olds who are making speech sound errors. You'll learn: - When different sounds typically develop (it can take up to seven years!) - Which errors are part of normal development - How to support children to learn tricky sounds in a way that feels fun and natural At the end of the hour, you'll leave with a handout summarising what we've covered, and directing you to a range of carefully curated, free or low-cost resources that you can use to support your child while you wait for speech pathology. The How to Help... series has been developed by the doctorally qualified and highly experienced speech pathologists at Protea Therapy to support families who are waiting for speech pathology services. The information in these workshops is drawn from the latest and best science in our field; but please do note that the information will be general in nature, and is not a substitute for individualised clinical speech pathology services.
