Welcome to the group!

I would encourage you (like I have everyone else:) to get a Sound Chart and have Seth repeat the sounds after you. It's easier to have children repeat sounds and words when they have a picture in front of them.

You can either go through the basic sounds and come up with simple words that will help you review Seth's speech range, or you can get the book "Sammy Learns To Talk" where we compiled all the words for you. It also encourages you to say the first sound a few times, then the ending to make sure the child clearly hears all the sounds. This is the best way to help a child with his/her enunciation.

Good Luck! And let us know how it goes.
