Sound Walls: Why aren't cards for Q and X included in the Kid Lips Picture Cards?

These graphemes are associated with sets of phonemes rather than one singular phoneme.  Thus, we cannot adequately represent the articulatory gestures required to make these sounds in Kid Lips cards.

In order to incorporate the phonemes associated with q and x into a sound wall, educators typically place phoneme grapheme cards qu and x to the side of the /k/ card.  For more information about this, please read this article.
