I'm a home school mum from NZ and have started this with my 5 yr old son. I had been doing the "I can say S" with his older sister so he feels very special to have his own PeachySpeechie book too. Meredith is so gifted at presenting/explaining things in a methodical way for us non- speech therapists. The results are great. Perseverance and practice are the key for kids who have learnt a sound incorrectly-and these books are gold because there are so many different activities to keep parents and children engaged with daily practice. Thankyou so much!


So many great resources in this workbook!
