About Me

I have been working as a speech pathologist since 1990.  Over this time I have accumulated a lot of resources across three different websites – BusyBugKits, SpeechBookShelf and BabyChatter.  This website is an amalgamation of this work.  I hope it helps you when you are working with your little clients!

How to produce this sound

Ay is made up of 2 sounds – ‘e’ and ‘ee’ .  Start with a smiling ‘e’ sound (like ‘egg’) and then slide into a longer ‘ee’ sound (like ‘wee’).
