If your child is having trouble saying the sound D, you have come to the right place!
Below, you will find a brief description on how to say D, a word list that can be used to make flashcards, be used as stimuli for an articulation game, or for a quick drill practice at home.
At the end, there are some sample games for functional speech therapy practice.
To say the sound /d/, put the tip of your tongue behind your teeth. This spot is called the alveolar ridge or the "bumpy" spot.
D is an earlier developing sound. Therefore, the games listed below are for younger children. Feel free to tweak them to meet the needs of your child. Take turns with your child saying the desired words. It is important to practice hearing as well as saying the sound.
These games can be played at home or anywhere. Try to adapt any game your child is already playing to squeeze in some fun "D" practice.
