  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Speech tests were conducted in 335 normal children aging from 3 to 6 for determining various stages of speech development. The test words were devised by picture represen-tation; the child is trained to name the pic-ture presented before him. The results were as follows:

1) At age 3 the child is able to pronounce all words excepting those that belong to columns sa, za and ra.

2) At the age 4 he is able to pronouce all words except those that belong to the column ra.

3) Reaching the age 5 generally all words are satisfactorily pronounced.

4) The cause of the disturbance of speech that occur at the age of 3-4 and those that occur beyond the age 5 should be differenciated.
