In order to teach P to your child, you must first know how to say P correctly yourself. I will teach you effective tactile, verbal, and visual cues that will help to elicit correct P productions.
Once you review this section, come back and move on to Teach P & Syllable Level Practices to start the teaching!
If you are just starting out, please begin with this section. If your child is already in speech therapy and working on P, start at the word level below.
You will teach your child how to say P correctly here and then start practicing at the syllable level. This level is the easiest since all other speech demands are taken away. Your child is not repeating words that he or she has already learned incorrectly. It is hard to break a bad habit and start a new one at the same time!

At the word level, your child will practice saying the sound in the beginning (initial), middle (medial), and end (final) position of words. Our mouth has to coordinate and move muscles differently depending on where the sound falls within a word. Once your child can say P in words, move on to sentences.
This stage may last longer than syllables and this is normal. However, don’t get stuck here if your child misses a word here or there. 100% accuracy is rare and not necessary!

This is the most exciting phase since this is where a new speech habit happens. Here, your child will learn how to P correctly automatically.
In order to encourage carryover of progress, you will be throwing away all speech cards and practice saying P in sentences in structured games!
