Yellow Sausage, You’ll Do

As a young child I had difficulty articulating words… until I started school and had speech therapy. It was hard work and annoying for a child of five who would rather be outside playing with friends. Three words/phrases I remember caused me the most trouble: “Yellow”, “Sausage” and “You’ll do”, which I pronounced as Werrow, Totidge and Yodel.

  2. As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I can relate to those being difficult sounds for some kids … I would have made it fun for you, though! 🙂

    Thank goodness for speech therapy. What is cute on a little one is not so much so when then get older and teased as a result. Lovely share and take on the prompt.

  4. If this is true, it’s a delightful anecdote! If it’s not true, it’s a delightful write regardless! How sweet…
