The "K" Sound and the "G" Sound

by Andrea

My son has trouble with both the "K" and the "G" sound.

Does it matter which one we work on first?

I don't have any experience with speech therapy at all. Thanks!

K and G sound
by: Luke from HomeSpeechHome

Hi Andrea,

While every child is different, it is typically easier to work on voiceless sounds first.

"K" is a voiceless sound, "G" is made in the same position as the "K"...but you use your voice to make it. That is why your child struggles with both, because they are made the same way, it's just that one is voiced and the other is voiceless.

If you haven't already accessed them...our site offers free video tutorials, tips, and techniques on teaching both the "K" and "G" sounds. You can check them out below.

I hope this helps.
