Child Speech TH Tutorial
Teach "TH" Today!

Does your child have difficulty saying the "th" sound? Is your child attending speech therapy but you are looking for more practical ways to target “th” at home? Is your child starting to have reading and writing difficulties?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!  Teach "TH" Today can help!

Why does my child need to learn "th"?

Speech skills refer to how well a person pronounces words. These skills are important as they can affect:

  • Reading abilities
  • Writing abilities
  • Speech intelligibility
  • Confidence
  • Learning in the classroom

If a child has a speech disorder, he or she is at risk for: 

  • Reading difficulties
  • Writing difficulties
  • Behavioral issues

By 7-8 years of age, a child should be saying the “th” sound correctly without any cues. If your child is not saying the "th" sound correctly, please consult a speech-language pathologist and come back here for some great home articulation activities!

Why does my child have to practice at home?

Home practice is critical, especially for speech therapy/articulation practice. Your child may receive speech therapy once or even twice a week but this is not nearly enough to make a new speech habit! To change a motor pattern, a child needs lots of practice.

Parents have daily access to their child and therefore MANY opportunities to practice sound pronunciation. This tutorial includes everything I teach my clients so they can be successful with their home programs. 

What will you learn in this tutorial?

  • How to say the “th” sound correctly
  • Effective visual, verbal, and tactile cues
  • Step by step explanation of motor practice principles
  • Review of articulation practice
  • Articulation practice plan that is adaptable for any child
  • Word lists & practice logs
  • Drills and practices for teaching "th"
  • Generalization games that can be easily played throughout the day
  • All the materials you really need for practice!

What is different about Teach TH Today?

This tutorial is written for parents and caregivers who are looking for effective ways to practice “th” throughout the day without adding more “homework” to their child’s already busy schedule. You will learn the basics of motor practice and the systematic learning needed to improve articulation. 

The focus of this book is incorporating speech practices into daily activities and games. If this is accomplished, children’s chances of success are much higher! 

While apps for speech therapy practice are fun and helpful (I own a few myself), they are not functional. Children tend to get good at playing the apps, but generalization is limited. 

Who should buy this tutorial?

  • Parents
  • Caregivers
  • Grandparents
  • Teachers
  • Speech-Language Pathologists
