DS2 is having some SALT sessions atm & we are trying to work on his sounds. He is finding it tricky to copy the mouth shapes & sounds, so I wondered if anybody knows of any exercises we can do so that he practises sounds & it just seems fun to him please? The sounds we are concentrating on at the moment are 'f' & 'p'.
We used to practice in the bath withy DD2 age 3/4.
Could you do some games, trying to say lots of silly sentences starting with those sounds with a kind of stutter? You say it first and he repeats it? e.g. p p p p please may I p p p p poke the p p p p penguin? And then have a toy penguin available to be poked?
Thank you both. Teen l like those ideas, especially the bath one
lljkk we haven't done the hearing exercises you talk about, I think they would definitely be useful. We have SALT again on Thursday (3rd of block of 4 sessions) so I will mention it to her then. I've been trying to get him to watch my mouth, with some success.
Another thing I tried today was, when he was on the swing, I only pushed him when he made the 'p' sound. It worked a bit, eventually, so I think he seems to be reward-motivated.
