A genie can grant you three wishes. They are magic.
A few days ago I got a package in the mail. My jaw dropped when I opened it and found a genie's lamp inside. I rubbed the lamp and out came the genie.
"That place is like a cage," he said. Then the genie said, "You have three wishes, but judge wisely."
"I wish I could play the banjo," I said. POOF! And it was done.
"I wish I could have sausage and juice every day for breakfast," I said. POOF! And it was done.
"For my last wish I want to fly on a jet like a secret agent." POOF! And it was done.

This list of functional words was professionally selected to be the most useful for a child or adult who has difficulty with producing the "J" sound.
We encourage you to use this list when practicing at home.
Doing home practice will help your child make much faster progress toward correct production.
Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) are only able to see students/clients 30-60 mins (or less) per week.
This is not enough time for your child to overcome an articulation disorder with the "J" sound. But with high caseloads...
...it's all SLPs can do.
There's only so much time in the day.
Every day that your child goes without practice it becomes more and more difficult to correct an "J" error because he/she continues to say it incorrectly.
We know life is busy, but if you're reading this you're probably someone who cares about helping their loved one as much as you can.
Practice 5-10 minutes whenever you can, but try to do it on a consistent basis (daily).
Please, please, please use this list to practice.
It will be a great benefit to you and your loved one's progress.
