How to Say K & Cues

In order to teach K to your child effectively, you must know how to say K yourself. It is important to understand the mechanics behind making the sound. Once you have the language to describe how to say K, you will be better able to teach your child.

I will teach you tactile, verbal, and visual cues as well. 

This section is a MUST READ!  

How to Say K & Cues



Teach K

Here you will learn tips and techniques on how to teach K to your child. If your child is already in speech therapy and can say K in isolation or in syllables, move down to the drill & flashcard games below. 

If you are unsure, read this section anyways. Can't hurt!

Drill Practice & Flashcard Games

Congratulations! Your child can say K. Now, you are ready to work on saying K correctly in words. 

At this level, it is important to practice saying the sound in the beginning (initial), middle (medial), and end (final) position. Your child's mouth has to coordinate and move muscles differently depending on where the sound falls within a word. 

This stage may last longer than the previous and that is to be expected. However, don’t get stuck here if your child misses a word here or there. 100% accuracy is rare and not necessary!

Functional Games: Sentence Level

Once your child is able to say K correctly in words (drill practice) and during flashcards games, you are ready to move on to the functional games listed here. This is the most exciting phase since this is where generalization really starts to happen. Here, your child will learn how to say K correctly in connected speech. 

In order to encourage carryover of progress, you will be throwing away all speech cards and practicing saying K in sentences while playing natural games!
