How To Say T
To say the sound "T," put the tip of your tongue behind your teeth. This spot is called the alveolar ridge or the "bumpy" spot.
- Tell your child to put their tongue behind their teeth.
- The concept of "behind" can be tricky to grasp. If so, try to put peanut butter or yogurt on the "bumpy spot" to have them feel where their tongue should go.
If you have any concerns, please contact a local speech language pathologist for a consultation.
