I wanted to post a few videos to show progress in Fiona’s pronunciation of words. As you can see it’s a lot more clear. We still have a lot of work to do but that will come with age and lots of practice. Right now we are working on “k” sounding words in therapy. She used to use “d” for “k” sounds and sometimes still does. Ms. Jenny had us use a popsicle stick to keep that tongue from touching the roof of her mouth. Try it at home. Pronounce a d and then a k. See what happens. Fiona needs to be taught how these sounds are produced with much repetition and practice.

The very difficult “k” sound mastered. (This took 2-3 weeks of practice):
