Homer was a happy hamster who lived in a heart shaped house. His owner, Hazel, was a redhead. Homer had the best cage. It was almost the size of a doghouse.
His favorite toy was his hamster wheel. It was behind his water dish. Homer always wore his hamster helmet when he ran on his hamster wheel. He was a safe hamster.
After running he would eat a hot dog and honey. He was happy with his life and hoped it would never change.
My friend Harry and I build the coolest tree house ever. We found a tree uphill from our house. The tree is tall and lets us see all the houses downhill from it. We had to get rid of an old beehive before we built it.
I like to inhale the fresh air when I am in our tree house. It helps me clear my head. I take ham sandwiches and eat lunch there sometimes.
Harry and I wish we could bring our horse, Hank, up in our tree house, but he is too heavy.
We were going fishing. After giving our mom a hug and grabbing some fishhooks, fishing hat, bait, and food, we headed out.
It was a short drive and we hit a pothole on the way to Lighthouse Lake. It was the best spot around.
After we parked we had to hike for half a mile, downhill, to reach the lake. Usually, we stayed for the whole day, unless the fish weren't biting.
Today we had to leave early because I had a headache. A hammer had fallen on my head while I was helping around the house. I was sad, but I knew a nap at home would help my head feel better.
This list of functional words was professionally selected to be the most useful for a child or adult who has difficulty with producing the "H" 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 "H" 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 "H" 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.
