Th typically develops between 4 1/2 and 7 years of age for girls and up to 8 years of age for boys. Th is often considered to be a “later developing” sound. I often work with children on the Th sound starting at 8 years of age or sooner if the trouble is causing them to be harder to understand and especially if it is causing them frustration. Teachers often ask me to work on the Th sound when they notice that it is affecting spelling. Spelling problems such as “fink” for “think” or “moder” for “mother” can develop into hard habits to break if they go on for too long.
Working on Th sounds is often fairly 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.
Included in this program:
– Assessment guide to help you decide if you need to work on Th
– Guide with specific ideas on how to establishing both the Voiceless and Voiced Th sound
– Step by step directions for how to do Indirect and Direct Therapy
– 96 pictures for both types of Th at the start, middle and ends of words
– 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.
