Hi everyone with a little one who's almost 4 - how quick have the years gone!!
Just wondering if anyone has a child who has trouble pronouncing certain sounds when talking. My son Jake has a good vocabulary and although i understand him, I'm worried noone will when he goes to school because he still doesn't say s, v and f sounds and some "t words". It's a shame because he's a bright little boy but I'm worried he'll get frustrated at school if he can't express himself. When he counts it sounds like one goo gee gour bibe gix.....etc. So if asked maths questions for example, he won't come across as knowing as much as he does. When he talks to people we don't know, like in shops for example, I always have to translate to them what he said.
Does anyone else have this concern? It would really help to know there's others his age like this.
