    Think about words that have your sound and write them down.

    • Say each word 10 times.
    • Make a sentence using each word.
    • Try to use your sound correctly when talking to a parent for five minutes.
    • Answer these questions using your sound correctly:
      • What do you like to do for fun?
      • What do you see in your house that has your sound in it?
      • What can you DO that has your sound in it?
      • Can you describe something using your sound?
    • Look through magazines for pictures or words that have his/her speech sound.
    • When driving, look for things with the child’s sound.
    • Play 20 questions. Think of a word or object that has the child’s speech sound. Have the child ask questions to figure out what the object is. If that is too difficult, give the child clues and have him/her guess.


    Choose a picture or object and try to answer these questions:

    • What is it? (label)
    • What group is it in? (category)
    • What does it do or what do you do with it? (function)
    • What’s another thing that could go with it? (association)
    • Can you say three more things about it? (example: color, size, shape) 
    • Does it have an opposite? (antonym)
    • Does it have another name? (synonym)
    • Does its name have another meaning? (multiple meaning)

    Read a story or listen to a story.

    • Who is the story about?
    • Where did the story happen?
    • What happened first? Next? Last?
    • Retell the story in your own words. 

    Play verbal games, such as:

    • Guess What (Guess what has sharp teeth and orange/black stripes?)
    • Yes or No ("Dogs have 2 feet", child says "no")
    • Which One Doesn't Belong and Why? ("apple, milk, banana")
    • Categories: "sock, shirt, pants" (child says "clothes")
    • Categories: Parent says "clothes", child says "socks, pants, shirts"
    • I Spy
    • Play "Simon Says". Start out by being "Simon", giving directions like "touch your nose", "touch the floor", "clap your hands", "walk to the door" and work up to harder ones like "touch your knees and clap your hands", "put a jelly bean under the napkin," etc. Next, have your child be "Simon" and help him to give the directions if needed.


    Think about the strategy or strategies you use to have fluent/smooth speech.

    • Listen to your parents say something using slow, easy speech and repeat it the same way.  
    • Say something (like a nursery rhyme) at the same time as your parents. Use slow, easy speech.
    • Make up a sentence and use your strategy if needed. 
    • Read a story and use your strategy when you get stuck.
    • Talk to a parent about your favorite TV show, movie, or video game and use your strategies.
