Hi I have just started working with 3-5 year olds that have unclear speech. Could you please explain something to me. If the child's hearing is fine and they can hear the word correctly, for example 'cat' but say 'tat', at what point has the brain instructed them to say it incorrectly? Because if I were to point to a picture of a cat and say 'tat', the child would say "no, not tat, its TAT! I guess what I want to know is how a child processes information as well as hears it. p.s. I've just used that as an example.
