Speech Therapy

Yolanda said... B.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l.!!!
I saw this on a comment this morning and it reminded me of when our daughter was having trouble pronouncing her words. She could not say beautiful. She blended the first like 'boo'. Over and over we would say it as B-U-T Full, until she could say it correctly.
Later, a ENT doctor told us she could not pronounce her 'r' and needed to go to a speech therapist. We could not afford that. So, I came up with a saying 'Ryan the red racing robot ran around the rosebush in the rain'. We repeated it until she could say her 'r'!
So, with a little common sense we saved a lot of money we did not have in the first place!
