Speech therapy for children - the sound F
I’m using techniques from Jane Bishop’s excellent book: Quick Children’s Speech Therapy At Home.
In this second video, we are looking at the sound F at the middle and end of words. We are following the advice to first see (in a mirror) the sound and then close eyes to feel the sound.
I try to only correct the sound we are focusing on. To do this at home, either draw the words or print them from google images. I chose leaf, wolf, knife, coffee, giraffe. I tried to not confuse it by adding letters -th which is similar to /f/

While I'm a Cambridge-certified English language teacher, I am not an expert in speech therapy.
My 5 year old has had speech difficulties since she was 2 and I can’t find a speech therapist where we live so I decided I need to try to help her myself.
