I often have moms ask me, "What sounds should my child be saying?" or "My child isn't saying the __ sound, is this normal?" Children acquire sounds at slightly different rates, but as a general rule, here is a chart which gives you the average age of acquisition for children's speech sounds.
If you are concerned with your child's speech or language skills, it's never to early to reach out for a consultation. Whether you are having difficulty understanding them or they are missing a few sounds, early intervention is always best. Reach out to your local speech language pathologist today!
