Speech sound disorder is a type of common childhood language disorders. Hong Kong mainstream kindergarten and nursery teachers have frequently encounter this disorder. This article summarized the four major types of speech errors in Hong Kong children mentioned Hong Kong Education and Manpower Bureau (EDB) in 2003. Firstly, children have made errors in producing fricatives and affricates /s-/, /ts/ and /tsh-/ sounds. Secondly, they might have difficulties in producing aspirated sounds such as /ph-/, /th/ and /kh-/. EDB also highlighted that Hong Kong children might also have difficulties in pronouncing the final consonants such as /-m/, /-n/ and /-ᶇ/, and diphthongs such as /ai/ and /ui/. This article summarized the strategies that could be used by mainstream kindergarten teachers in helping those children with speech sound disorders, including (1) identification of speech sound disorders, (2) referral of children to government services, (3) promoting positive attitude towards children with speech sound disorders, (4) facilitating of speech sounds productions in daily activities, and (5) use of public resources available in Hong Kong.
