It's May! Which just happens to be Better Hearing and Speech Month (BHSM), so to help spread the word throughout this month, I will be addressing some of the most common questions I receive from parents. Today, in our first installment, I'm answering questions many parents have about their child's articulation...
1. What sounds should my child be able to say?

2. I can't really tell what sounds my child is able to say... it's seems so inconsistent.
3. Is it really a big deal if my child still makes a few mistakes when they speak?
Do you have any other questions about your child's speech? Comment below... it might turn up in a future post this month! #BHSM
