speech

Okay, so my daughter is 3.5 and always got a hard time from her speech. Because of how she pronounced words. I pronounce words kind of differently. Like I add an extra syllable in the word "button" I pronounce it (buT-Tin) saying both Ts. Or I take letters out of words. For exaple I say hoe-made, or room-ate instead of roommate or homemade. Sometimes I also drop the L in words like school or cold. But that is hard to explain without actually saying the words. I was in speech class in 5th grade for it, but they gave up on me because I could say it correct in the class but after I wouldn't. I feel so bad that my daughter suffers because I can't say some words right. Is there any way that I can keep this baby from talking like me? Should I have my mom work on words more than me?

There dad has tried to help with it, but he doesn't understand why it really matters how they talk.

Try head start. Sometimes I don't understand what my daughter talks about. She's 3 and will be 4 in April and im putting her in head start.

Here where I live they start headstart at 3, so that's where she is having problems.
