My child has trouble saying sounds and can be hard to understand

When a child has difficulty saying the sounds of speech, you might notice:

o Difficulties saying the sounds of speech correctly

o Difficulty being understood by others, especially by those outside the family

o Leaving sounds out of words

o Saying the wrong sounds in words

o Lisp

Just like crawling and walking milestones, children learn the different sounds of speech in stages and by certain ages. Here is an information sheet about when children learn the different sounds of speech.
