NEW Articulation Norms

For those of you who thought our norms never truly matched how "typical" children developed speech, you were right!

If you ever worked with children earlier than the magical age of "8" for /r/ and had more success, did you ever wonder if it was because we were waiting too long to intervene?

Average age children learn to pronounce English consonants correctly

(Based on 15 English speech acquisition studies compiled by McLeod and Crowe, 2018)
