A speech disability may impact: reading decoding, reading fluency, spelling, social relationships, public speaking, and clear communication with peers and adults.
Provide friendly reminders to use “best speech” when appropriate.
Practice using names or other common day-to-day vocabulary with best speech sounds.
Set aside small amounts of time each day to practice (for example: before dinner or while riding in the car.)
Read together and search for targeted speech sounds in pictures and text.
Make speech practice fun!
A language disability may impact: listening comprehension, reading comprehension, written expression, understanding and using new vocabulary, story problems, multiple step processes, conversational skills, understanding social rules, and building social relationships.
