[Overton]Articulation Development in Children Aged 2 to 4 Years

This study looked at articulation development in children between the ages of 2 and 4 years. The data is presented in the same way as the data in the previous chart, with the bar beginning at the average age of acquisition (50%) and ending at the upper limit of acquisition (90%). When an arrow points to the right, the age of upper limit of acquisition was some undetermined age above 4 years.
