Shouldn't my student be producing these sounds by now?

This chart shows the age at which children are eligible for speech services in RCS. The sounds that should be mastered by a certain age are listed in that age.Children who are age 5 should have mastered "b, p, m, h, d, n, d, k, g, w, f, t & y". So, if sounds listed on the number 6 are misarticulated those errors are still considered a developmentally appropriate.

*Don't forget: Kids with articulation delays identified on an IEP are not penalized for spelling or mispronunciations during assessments.
