Q: Have you ever seen a child add final consonants to words that don’t need them? My 3-year-old male client adds T to the end of everything.
I have seen this with a few kids who used a few different phonemes: T and S mostly. I usually consider it overgeneralization of their new knowledge about final consonants, and I don’t worry about it. I do not believe that I ever had to do anything about it, and I just let it fade away on its own. If I felt I had to address it at some point I probably would do minimal pairs such as Me and Meat.
