/S/ is a difficult sound to pronounce correctly and it can be difficult to teach. One reason being that /S/ is a later developing sound. If it doesn't self-correct by 8 years of age, we have 8 years of a "bad" speech habit to break and then correct!

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 practices.

What is different about Child Speech S Tutorial?
There are many books and materials out there that talk about how to work on /S/. However, I found these materials either incomplete or too focused on the drill phase. While the drill phase is important, it is just one step in the process.
Child Speech S Tutorial, Teach "S" Today, stands out because it explains the process in detail for parents and then allows the parents to implement natural practices at home. There are no endless amounts of non-functional worksheets or simple apps that only work on a few words! Worksheets may help initially during the teaching phase. Apps may decrease the amount of work and/or interaction needed from parents, but they do not achieve long-lasting results.
This tutorial is written for parents and caregivers who are looking for effective ways to practice /S/ throughout the day without adding more “homework” to their child’s already busy schedule.
The focus of this book is incorporating your child's progress and newly learned skills into daily activities and games. If this is accomplished, children’s chances of success are much higher!
