• Many students in Kindergarten and 1st grade have errors on L sounds. These students will typically make a W sound using their lips instead of an L sound using their tongue. When this happens, a word like "ladder" becomes "wadder". This video will give you some helpful information regarding how to correctly produce an L sound: https://youtu.be/9-K3nLUThBE
     
    Have your child simply listen quietly as you say this list of words slowly and clearly. Don't have your child repeat the words, just listen. I suggest that you read through the following list of words daily as your child watches and listens to your productions of the L sound at the beginning of these words:
    leg            late            lunch            late
    leap          lamb          last               leaf
    left            lip              line               log
    like           lane           laugh            look
     
    Here are a few books that feature lots of L sounds that you can use for your child to listen to as you read. Later in therapy, these books also serve as a great practice tool for saying the L sound:
