Do read to your son. While you're waiting for his speech therapy to begin, you can also help him work on the sounds he is missing. Play a game with him while you are riding in the car or while you are drawing together; you say a word or a sentence and let him repeat it after you. He could earn stickers for saying things correctly or for trying hard. Once your son begins therapy, ask the speech therapist how you can best reinforce at home what he or she is doing with your son.
