Help with Assessment

by Robin

I am evaluating a 4th grade student who occasionally produces her /b/ and /p/ sounds by protruding her tongue.

(Try doing's not easy!) For example when she produced the word "baby", her tongue came out between her teeth and lips for both /b/ sounds.

She also did it one time for the /m/ sound. This occurs only in connected, spontaneous speech.

I have never heard of this distortion and I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with anything similar? All of her other speech sounds are typical.

Thanks in advance for any help!
