Congratulations! Your child can say M. Now, you are ready to work on saying M 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!
Once your child is able to say CH 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 CH correctly in connected speech.
