• Development of Speech Sounds in Children


    This Chart shows at what age 90% of boys and girls can articulate the english consonants correctly (probably in all positions). Vowels are correctly produced by the age of three.  All children do NOT develop at teh same time and in the same way, so we cannot expect correct speech from every child in the primary grades.
