lollie010 Posted June 13, 2009 Share Posted June 13, 2009 My dd just turned four this week. She is very bright and active. She loves for me to read to her and knows many letter sounds. She can blend three letter words if she knows the letter sounds. She sings and dances all day. It suddenly hit me about two weeks ago that she is not pronouncing the "r" sound in words with "r" controlled vowels and she is not ennunciating the "r" sound at the end of words. Ex: girl is pronounced "gull" and brother is pronounced "brothuh." Sometimes her "L's" have sublte hints of the "w" sound. These are the only problems I have noticed and I cannot believe I am just now picking up on it, but it became more evident after a recent cold with stuffy nose. We have been trying to help her, but haven't seen any progress. Is there anything that I should do? I am not overly worried, but am wondering if this is in the range of normal. Thanks in advance.
