At Home Speech Therapy Exercises

Speech therapy exercises can be performed at home to improve articulation and speech in children with various types of communication problems. According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, speech therapy exercises can be effective in helping a child develop and improve his ability to speak. These exercises may be used to prevent or correct problems that interfere with the production of sounds, syllables and words. 

Speech therapy is most effective when it is an active process. Children learn best through play, so these exercises should focus on activities that are fun for kids. Parents can use these exercises at home to practice with their child. The more practice your child gets, the better his speech will become.

These exercises are designed to help you practice your speech and language skills at home. They can be done with a parent or other caregiver, or alone. In some cases, you will need a mirror and/or a pencil and paper.

The exercises for each sound are organized into two sections: syllable practice and phrase practice. After doing the syllable practice, try to say the phrases. You may find it helpful to record yourself saying the phrases and listen to how you sound. If you are using this exercise sheet as part of therapy with a speech therapist, your speech therapist may teach you how to use simple visual tools like pictures of things that start with the target sound (see example below) to help support these exercises.

At-home speech therapy exercises are a great way to help your child become more comfortable with the sounds and words they need to practice. You can make it fun for them by making games out of the exercises, and even the youngest children will respond to these activities.

Speech therapy exercises are some of the best ways to target specific sounds, syllables, and more that you need help with. Speech therapy homework (doing these exercises) will only take a few minutes a day, and you’ll start to see noticeable improvements in as little as a week.

For many children, speech therapy is a once or twice weekly appointment where they perform tongue and mouth exercises directed by a licensed speech therapist. These exercises are designed to strengthen their jaw and mouth muscles so that their speech becomes more clear and enunciation becomes easier. As many parents know, however, this type of therapy takes time, and it can be frustrating to see your child struggle when all you want is for them to be able to communicate with ease.

But the good news is that there are activities you can do at home with your child to help them improve their speech skills! We’ve put together a list of our favorite games and exercises, but remember—every child is different. You might have to try out several different options before hitting on the ones that work best for you and your little one.

While we strongly encourage visiting a speech-language pathologist for therapy, this list provides some at-home exercises you can work on. From articulation difficulties like /s/ and /l/, to phonological processes such as stopping, fronting, and backing; these exercises are sure to help your child develop the skills needed to communicate effectively.
