Frontal Lisp and Oral Stability

By Pam Marshalla

Q: I am seeing a 5-year-old male with interdental S, T, D, N, and L. He can say every sound correctly when reminded to keep back teeth together. Do I address all sounds at once or just S first? Should I still do cornerstone approach since he is stimulable or just work on drill and carryover?

As you know, each child is different. This is the process of trial and error. You will have to figure out what works best for HIM — isn’t that frustrating?

But beyond that, this is an issue of oral stability. See this post of Oral Stability and the Frontal Lisp for my thoughts.
