Making the "S" Sound

I think your website is awesome!!!

However, I was wondering if you could help me.

On your videos you show how to correct problems with pronouncing the letter s like "th"... but what if the letter "S" is pronounced "shhhh" instead of "sss".

Do you have any tips on this? Any help or tips will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You!!

production of /s/

I use a visual of a slide.

On every ladder rung (going up the slide) I place the letter "t". Have them same "t" at every step as you point.

This places the tongue in the correct position for /s/. Once the get to the top of the slide, they keep their tongue there and slide down with the /s/ sound.
