My child's speech is really unclear, how can I help them with their pronunciation?

You can help your child by improving their awareness of the sounds in speech. Try listening out for environmental sounds and the different sounds and properties of speech, for example playing games like 'I spy' and clapping out the beats in words. It's important to always keep activities as fun as possible, so children do not lose their confidence talking. Sometimes children need more specific input to help them with their speech sound difficulties so if you are concerned then you should seek advice from a Speech and Language therapist.
