Here is also some useful information to help you understand how speech develops

It takes about seven years for children to learn to pronounce speech sounds the same way adults do. Different children develop speech at different rates. In general, most children should make few mistakes with the listed speech sounds at the ages shown in the table below.

      The difference MIA makes in our lives

      Love Katia – I love my best cousin Mia. We play together with all of our dolls and toys. I get so excited when mamma tells me that we’re going to visit Zia Cathy and Zio Jamie, because Mia plays with me and teaches me lots of things.

      Love Zia Nadia – Mia is a special part of our lives. We love the close relationship she has with Katia – they can spend hours playing together. Mia is always patient with her and there is so much laughter and fun when they’re together. Mia is happy and chatty and very caring with her younger cousins. She tells me lots of stories about the things she’s learned at school and I love her sensitivity, genuine curiosity and willingness to share her thoughts and feelings.
