Free Kids’ Elocution Tips | No 1

Does your Child have a Problem with English Pronunciation?

You are probably reading your Free Elocution Tips because you are concerned about your child’s speech and/or language.  You are not alone!  Many parents and carers face the same problem.  Findings suggest that in every school class there may be one or two children with difficulty in being understood due to their speech and language.

But, how can you help your child?

First, you need to identify if there is a problem.  And, if so, what the problem is with your child’s speech and/or language?  Why is it happening?  Is it normal?  Can it be corrected?

In this Free Elocution Tips, you will learn about the importance of close observation – watching your child!  It is important to gather as much information as possible so that you can measure your findings against the normal stages of development for a particular age.  We will look at the normal stages of development for a particular age in later Free Elocution Tips.  But, the first task is to collect information as to what is happening when your child speaks. At present, we will only consider observing physical factors which may be affecting your child’s speech and/or language.  We will consider about factors in later Free Elocution Tips.
