My 5 year old son used to pronounce all the alphabets very well when he was about 2. 5 years old. Then we stayed in US for about 2. 5 years and now he pronounce R as L. Eg. When he tries to call his friend Ryan he actually says Lion. Is it normal or should i consult a speech therapist. The important thing is that sometimes he says R correctly but that is by mistake. Till what age should i wait. We are planning to go back to US. R is an important alphabet over there. I dont want my son to be embarrassed or feel that something's wrong with him. I am very worried about this matter. Please suggest. Thanks alot

My son is 4 now. His pronunciation was also good till the age of 3. 5 years. But then he has problem with letter r. In play school he used to read t for tree but after some months of admission he say t for tee. Thank god i understood his problem and try to correct him and make him realize. after some days he realised his problom on his own and read r sound words repeatedly. Now he can pronouce r correctly. I think the problem behind this behaviour of my son was his fear of his school or teacher.

I was wondering if it is common that earlier a kid speaks clear and suddenly starts saying few alphabets wrong
