Making the L consonant is especially difficult. The L consonant develops first at the age of 5, as an initial, medial and final sound. However, we see plenty of children having difficulties developing this particular sound.
Many parents and SLPs reach out to us and download our app to acquire practice. We will give you a better idea of how to make this sound by watching the video below which shows the tongue position in illustrations and how to properly pronounce the L sound. We also listed all the words in our app that you can use to practice making this sound with your children.
After watching this video open our app, Speech Blubs, and practice the words that include the L consonant in them. If you don't have the app, you can download the app from the App Store (https://apple.co/2UJcddR) or Google Play (https://bit.ly/2QyYTKX).
