athena1277 Posted October 25, 2012 Share Posted October 25, 2012 I don't usually hang out here on the special needs board, but I have heard that those who do are so very helpful. My ds has a speech delay and has been in speech therapy since he was 3yo. He has a lot of trouble with articulation and especially with putting ending sounds on words. He is in K this year and learning (slowly) to read. We are 1/3 of the way through the school year and still struggling with CVC words. He often will do things like sound out a word, then say it with a different ending. For example he will sound out the word "rug", then say "run". Other times he seems to just guess the word based on the first letter. The way he reads sounds so much like the way he talks that I have to believe there is some correlation. I am wondering if any of you have had similar experiences and could suggest ways to help him. I would also love to read some research about why these 2 problems are related. Thank you!
