When Should My Child See a Speech Therapist?
Typically, when children have errors saying the ‘k’ sound, such as by saying “tar” for ‘car’ or “tootie” for ‘cookie’, I begin working with them before entering Junior Kindergarten (JK) and during JK (in Canada).
I follow a process in teaching the ‘k’ sound that I wanted to make more accessible to parents, caregivers, home school teachers, and daycare providers (to name a few).
For example, in my first therapy session I read mini books that emphasize the ‘k’ sound and I teach the child how to ‘hear and recognize’ the sound. I will shape play dough to demonstrate the sound, and then I will elicit the sound in the child.
In the 5 Steps to Learning the ‘k’ Sound I explain exactly what to do with your child. I include visuals, mini books, and essential flashcards for practicing the sound. The package can be printed, or you can view it from your computer, smartphone, or tablet.
