Final “Ch” Clusters

By Pam Marshalla

Q: I finally have a boy saying his “Sh” and “Ch” sounds using your techniques. But he is having a hard time transitioning to words like “pinched” or “benched.” I would appreciate your suggestions as to how to help him.

I would have him pause between the “Ch” and the “T” like this:

Pinched = Pinch…(pause)…T!

Benched = Bench…(pause)…T!

Then shorten the pause between the Ch and the T until they sound like the cluster they are.
