“I need a poon”, “I see a tar”, “I said top” are some of the most common speech errors heard between 2 and 4 years of age. Leaving off part of an S cluster is also one of the easiest speech errors to “fix” and will often have a huge impact on how well your child can make himself understood. Anytime sounds are left off of words the words become much harder to understand. Correcting S clusters can reduce frustration and also lead to the correction of other speech errors.
While difficulty with S blends can be considered to be age appropriate until 4 years of age I often start working on S blends with children as young as 3.
“Fixing” S Blends / Clusters is often easy and straightforward and if the right steps are followed it is something that can be done at home in just a few minutes each day. This booklet provides parents with everything they need to work on S blends / clusters at home.
Included in this program:
– Assessment guide to help you decide if you need to work on S Blends / Clusters
– Step by step instructions for providing both Indirect and Direct Therapy
– 58 minimal pair pictures to help with both leaving the S off and with leaving off the other part of the cluster
– Visual supports to make it easier to say S Blends
– Game Ideas and more
While all of the ideas and materials are based on my 26 years of experience working with children and families as a Speech-Language Pathologist, they are just a guide. They cannot replace therapy with or an assessment by a Speech-Language Pathologist or any other professional.
Satisfaction is 100% guaranteed. If for any reason you decide that this program is not helpful, just let me know and I will provide you with a full refund.

Better Speech, Language and Social Communication is truly the best gift any parent can give their child.
