This book teaches the parents of children with articulation problems how speech sounds develop, how to recognise developing speech problems, and how to help children make the most out of speech therapy. It helps parents decide whether the sound errors their child is experiencing are developmental and within normal limits for their age. It also provides parents with activities to increase their child's language and articulation skills.
