How can I help my 3 year old with his pronunciation?
posted by unceman to education (26 answers total)
While I understand that my 3 year old son will eventually grow out of this phase, he seems to have difficulty pronouncing his R's. Specifically, words that end in an "AIR" sound at the end of the words like THERE or WHERE. When he says these words they sound like THEY-UH and WAY-UH.
Speech therapy seems like overkill right now since he's still developing. However, I feel like we should at least work towards correcting this speech pattern. Are there any suggested methods that could help him?
