We bought this book with high hopes that we could help our son with his phonological issues. But we found that the content did not live up to the title. I was unable to find specific, helpful exercises to actually teach a child to pronounce certain sounds. Some of the activities included are "sing 'Old MacDonald' with your child," or "count the number of letters in this word," "speak clearly to your child" or "read a book to your child." In other words, they are all LISTENING exercises, rather than ACTIVE exercises for a child with phonological problems.

My son has trouble with the sound of the letter "l" - the page of exercises for "l" includes activities like "making lemonade," making "lists" and "lick a lollipop." There is no advice on how to help the child who has trouble with "l" sounds. No activities to teach the child correct articulation.

This is not a handbook, or a workbook, but more a guide for spending time with your child and nothing more. Any good parent would be doing these things already! But I found very little help with actual speech.

I purchased this book because my son is having trouble saying words. The book gave me so much information about what causes these problems, and activities that I could do with him that were easy and fun. He is talking so much better. This is truly a wonderful resource for any parent and is easy to understand, but very informative and interesting.

This book's highly readable chapters on speech and language development and language stimulation will be very helpful to parents. The chapter that assists parents in determining when professional servies are needed and provides a process of evaluating the quality of those services is particularly strong.

I was happy to write the foreword for this book because I believe all parents should have this information. The information provided in this book is practical but comprehensive. The numerous exercises you will find throughout the book will show you how to enhance your child's vocabulary and early literacy skils, and will encourage your child's ability to say sounds clearly and correctly.

Finally a book that actually helps. It gives concrete examples and exercises you can do at home with your child broken down by specific sounds that need work. My son just started speech therapy (he's 3) twice a week and these exercises and great to do along with the ones suggested by his teacher. We're seeing a huge improvement in only a few weeks -- and he was diagnosed with a severe phonological disorder.

If your child has any kind of sound problems or just doesn't seem to talk clearly, buy this book. It is interesting and gives you all the information you need. There were fun activities to do with my daughter to help her learn to say her /l/ sounds. She is doing so much better and I am thrilled.

Format: Paperback
As an elementary school teacher, I am often asked by parents how to help their child with their articulation difficulties and the many problems that can go along with them. I am so pleased that I now have such a wonderful book to recommend to them! Teach Me How to Say It Right, is an excellent guidebook on recognizing and treating articulation disorder. It offers helpful advice and instructive exercises, in a clear, straightforward manner. It will stay on my bookshelves for the rest of my teaching career and I certainly will recommend it to parents.

I found this book to be a great resource. Every new parent should have a copy. I found the information to be accurate yet easily understandable to non-professionals. It's a great source of information for parents and parents-to-be.
