The N consonant develops first at the age of 2 as an initial and medial sound, at the age of 3, it also develops as a final sound. However, we see plenty of children having difficulties developing this particular sound, since it’s a voiced sound, produced by the vibration of the vocal cord.
We strongly suggest watching this video, where Rachel covers the R consonant and explains how to make it properly.
