In order to support your child with learning initial speech sounds, it is important to identify which speech sounds are causing you concerns. Once you have identify the sounds that are difficult to pronounce, teach the speech sound first through repetition and naming exercises. When a child is secure with pronouncing the sound individually, you can then move to teaching it within a word; begin by teaching the sound at the beginning of a word first, then at the end of the word and finally in the middle of the word. We have posted a useful link below, on how to teach initial speech sounds.
