Back to school…back to speech!!
Welcome to The Joy of Speech and Language! We are excited for the start of a new school year and more opportunities to help children who are having difficulty with oral-motor, speech, and language skills.
Fun tip to work on oral motor and sound production:
This is a great time of year to enjoy blowing bubbles outside. Not only is blowing bubbles a fun activity that you can enjoy with your children, but it is also helps to develop lip rounding which is important for oral motor development. Additionally, the ability to adequately round your lips is necessary for the correct production of specific speech sounds. Blowing bubbles is one way to practice lip rounding which will promote both oral-motor and articulation skills.
If you are concerned about your child’s speech and language development please contact us and we will be happy to work with you and your child.
