Generalization of Speech Targets
Is your child trying to generalize their speech targets in their conversational speech? Try to incorporate movement activities to encourage your child to split their attention between the motor movement and their speech sounds simultaneously (e.g. playing catch while having a conversation using their sounds). Retelling their favorite show, video, or book can be another way to have your child practice their speech sounds in their spontaneous speech. Using music is another great way to encourage generalization of sounds! Have your child sing and record their favorite song while attempting to produce their targeted sounds correctly. See if they can hear or see a mistake that they made while singing!
