You are about to learn my 18 essential tips for effectively developing speech sounds.  Each of these tips will greatly enhance your child’s experience and aid them in successfully achieving  their speech sounds.

These tips are a product of working in an underfunded system where visits and resources are limited.  It has been an ongoing quest of mine to identify what specifically I do as a Speech Language Pathologist that makes the most difference to my clients.  By applying the Pareto Principle (or the 80/20 rule) to what I do as a Speech Language Pathologist, I have identified what is the most impactful to achieving speech sounds.  This has been an ongoing and evolutionary process yielding some striking results.  These tips are unique as many of them challenge current traditional speech therapy practices.
