Sometimes children struggle with making the CH sound, which typically begins to develops at around the age of 5, as an initial, medial or final sound. They usually master the sound by the age of 7.
CH consonant is most often paired with JJ consonant because they take the same mouth position. These consonants have a stop consonant component, but unlike stop consonants, they are always released. They each contain two sounds for the CH, we are combining the T and the SH, to make CH. The CH [tʃ] consonant is unvoiced, meaning only air passes through the mouth.
