I wanted to share a question that came in from one of our SLP-Impact members about Korean-influenced English.
Not sure if you have anyone familiar with Korean-influenced English on staff, but I figured it was worth a shot. To find an answer to my question below, I have tried googling and posting on the Speech Pathologists at Large facebook group, but haven’t been able to find anything.
A 5;2 girl who speaks Korean and English has been referred to me for the phonological process of stopping /s/ in all word positions. I have your “Difference or Disorder?” book and the Korean speech norms say /s/ is acquired by 6 years of age. BUT, should the *stopping* of /s/ (as opposed to other errors such as interdental tongue position) be resolved by age 5? Thanks!
This information is so helpful as I have a Korean, newer English speaking student with stopping. I did start addressing it, so good to know I am on the right track!
So glad to hear it!
