Do you have a question about what your child is saying?
Does she say? "yion" Instead of "lion" or making mistakes with other voices?
Is your child abandoned in school or on the playground because other children cannot understand it?
When you can't understand her, you and your child will be frustrated and have to ask multiple questions to clarify. Here are the main reasons why we often explain to your speech therapy clients why your child's language is unclear:
A variety of muscles are involved in the production of speech, and sometimes the inability to move these muscles may result in unclear speech. For example, your child may not be able to lift the tip of the tongue to create a tongue 'L' sound.
Control and coordination.
The problem may not be muscle weakness, but your child's difficulty in coordinating exercise. This is similar to someone who can't dance. They have no problems with their legs, but they dance "two feet left". So your child might say 'L' In 'lion' but can't say 'L' In the "caterpillar". Or she might say "lion" for a minute 'yion' Next, and 'wion' next.
Difficulty in speech.
This is more about the cognitive concept of sound than the physical aspect of producing speech. For example, if your child grows up and speaks or listens to Mandarin Chinese, he may say 'hou-' Instead of ' house' or '猫-' Instead of 'capture'.
Not that he can't produce '-se' Or '-ch' Sound; this is just because there is no such ending sound in Mandarin, so it is more difficult for him to understand the concept of ending sound in English.
Why speech therapy is important
The speech therapist is a professional who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of speech problems in children [and adults]. Speech therapy is important because it:
1. Make your life easier
2. Eliminate the vicious circle: Unclear speech leads to less interaction, so speech input is less, speech and language are poor.
When your child is unclear, this may reduce interaction with other children, which leads to worse speech and language due to lack of practice. For this reason, even adults will attend language therapy courses.
3. Affect the way children learn to read.
Instead of learning the letter 'S' For example, if he says, there is a sound in the "socks" "Tick" Instead, he might end up thinking of the letter. 'S' is having a 'T' sound.
4 guiding principles for speech therapy
Teaching a child who is unclear may be different from the way you teach other children in your family. You may need to repeat and emphasize the sound more often. Here are some of the things we often use in speech therapy when dealing with your child's unclear words:
Please note that clear speech can be attributed to the oral movement of the tongue or lips or other voice muscles. [This is not all about the bass ' it is ' all about this place'!] The position of the tongue, ie.
We produce different voices in the tongue twister ["She sells sea shells by the sea"] and everyday language because we can move the tongue to different positions in the mouth and can produce sound in different ways. Some voices are "quiet blows", such as 'f','s','sh'Some other sounds are ' noisy sounds ', such as 'z' or 'r'.
Please note that some sounds will develop earlier and some sounds will develop later.
The overall order of development of speech is “from the outside”. This means your child is more likely to use his lips and chin than his tongue. Therefore, it is important to note that some sounds are not as easy as other sounds.
Please note that not all words beginning with the same letter or sound are equally easy or difficult.
a child who is hard to say "K" The sound makes it easier to say the sound in a word, such as a "kite", the mouth is more open, and the tongue behind the mouth has more space. In contrast, the correct statement that the mouth is the "key" is more closed.
Please note that some intermediate steps may be required from the current location to the target sound.
For example, if your child can’t say “the” and say "GE" Instead, she may need to learn to progress 'g'to'd' Then "day". Anything that moves her in the right direction is progress.
Now that we have completed "why", it is time for 'how'
Here are the first three language treatment tips:
1. Slow down, emphasize the sound and do everything possible to show the child the necessary tongue and lip movements.
If your child says 'totate' Rather than just "chocolate", instead of just telling your child at the usual session speed, don't, say chocolate ', try to slow down and emphasize the sound: 'CH-OcolateExaggerate what you do with your mouth. While you are teaching, look in the mirror with your child so that he can see what you are doing.
If your child can't say the whole word, at least try to say the right part, for example, if you can speak the sound yourself. "CH-CH-CH" Or maybe even the sound part is correct, for example, just to blow out the air, or just round the lips.
2. Help your child hear what it is and what it is.
Help you avoid mistakes and speak out correctly by showing your child what it is Do not What is it. For example, "I don't have from
Cooperationÿour Pencil, these are cooperationfrom
RiseOur pencils. what do you want? "Your child will be more likely to say "colored pencils" correctly.
It is also important to give them very clear feedback. This includes imitating what the child is doing, or describing the voice in a language that the child can understand. For example, you can say: "If you say '-OP' Your friend may not know you. it is from
Quiet voice '跳'".
3. A game changer tip: speak loudly, then say it silently, then say it out loud again.
Based on my experience, I have found that a great speech therapy technique is focused on oral exercise. Let your child say the word, such as "strawberry." In the second attempt, just say the exit and don't say it out loud.
Encourage your child to move his mouth in the same way. This will allow your child to focus more on the movement of the mouth. Using a mirror can help your child see exactly how their mouth moves.
Please understand that correcting unclear speech through speech therapy exercises is a process. Being able to do it slowly is better than not doing it at all. Language therapy to learn the necessary lips and tongue motion It's more like learning to dance or how to play the piano instead of learning a new language.
Just knowing This word is different from being able to move the tongue quickly. Say This word. This requires practice, and the more you practice, the better you will be. Therefore, you want your child to speak the word more than once. One time it was not practice.
remember: Because of the way he has studied so far, your child is now in his place. If your child learns a language in a different way, he needs to be taught differently. Seek professional help and consult a speech therapist.
