It is important to remember some guidelines when practicing speech:
- Be patient. Your child is learning a new skill. Some have likened it to learning to play the piano. You need to practice many times in order to master this new skill.
- Short sessions are better for most children. Five to 10 minutes of work can make a significant difference.
- 20 good productions are better than 50 bad ones.
- Unless your Speech-Language Pathologist instructs you otherwise, you should work on only one sound or blend at a time.
