Recently I've had the pleasure of spending a lot of my time at local preschools and early learning centres. I love it. The innocence, the imagination, and the hilarity of toddlers and preschoolers makes my heart sing. With it though, has come a number of enquiries from parents and teachers about the speech sounds their children/students are using.
I'm often asked whether it is okay to have a lisp when a child starts school (no), if it is okay if 3 year old 'Ruby' says her name as 'Wuby' (yes) and everything in between.
It got me thinking. This needs to be the topic of my next newsletter... and so it is!
