Articulation – /b/ and /p/


To produce the /b/ sound, use the following cues with your child.

  • Watch My Mouth (this will help him see what your lips are doing)
  • Put your lips together
  • Make your lips pop
  • Make your voice hum/Turn your voice on

Help your child push his lips together with his fingers if he’s having trouble getting them closed

If your child is having trouble with /p/, use the same cues as for /b/ but you will not tell her to turn her voice on.  You can have her whisper the sound if she’s making it sound like a /b/ instead of a /p/.
