See We're Not So Bad...

I was discussing with a student how they have made so much progress that they were going to be dismissed from speech.  Apparentl,y this child really enjoys coming to my room so she was a little upset by this fact. 


She told me, “I still need help with my sounds!”
I told her , “No, all your sounds are great.  You can make them all the time now.”
Child “No, listen….”
Then this child proceeded to tell me how much she continues to need my help to make her sounds, but she wasn’t sure how to make errors anymore so she was using a British accent.  She thought that would convince me that she still needed help. 
When a child can’t even fake getting their sounds wrong, I would say they’re ready for dismissal!
