Our 3 year old daughter talks a lot (unsurprisingly). She has some words/sounds figured out perfectly, but struggles with other sounds. For instance, she can say the "s" sound, and can say "poon", but has trouble saying "spoon". It sounds like this is "normal", as children learn to speak.

I wanted to know if there's a guide, chart, etc. explaining the normal progression of speaking skills (what sounds to work on next, for example). Any speech pathologists in the audience? :)

Here is what I've found so far:

  1. A Phonology Development Chart
  2. A Speech and Articulation Development Chart - probably the nicest
  3. A printable Speech Sound Development Chart
