I am sure that you will have your camera trained on your little one this Christmas. No doubt you will capture some gorgeous moments, particularly around your child’s use of words and the adorable way they pronounce some of those challenging ones.
This cute Christmas video is just another reminder that learning speech sounds is really tricky!
If you want more information on how your child learns speech sounds. Check out Talkable’s newest page on speech sound development.
Great to meet you!
In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m passionate about early language development and the real difference that every parent can make when it comes to teaching their child to communicate.
I’ve been a paediatric speech pathologist for over 14 years, working in both Melbourne and Perth. I currently work part-time for a not-for-profit paediatric therapy organisation in Perth, which I love.
My other, and most important job, is being Mum to my beautiful girls, Ella (4) and Chloe (2). When we’re not busy reading books, splashing in puddles or checking the letterbox, I also enjoy taking Oskar (our first and furry baby) for walks, going to the beach and getting out in the veggie patch.
I hope that you find the information, videos and tip sheets on this website helpful. If you have any suggestions I’d love to hear from you so send me an email at email@example.com.
