Speech Therapy Made Simple!
This is a list of the approximate ages at which children should have mastered different sounds. Of course all children develop differently and may not master sounds in this exact order.  There are also other factors that a speech-language-pathologist would consider in determining whether a childs speech patterns are within normal limits or delayed. For example substituting th for s at age 6 is normal, but omitting it entirely or substituting t for s would be a concern (and impacts intelligibility much more).
