This Minimal Pairs pack focuses on Consonant Deletion: when sounds are omitted from the beginning, middle and/or the end of words.
Examples: ‘car’ = ‘ar’; ‘house’ = ‘ow’.
Speech and Language therapists use minimal pairs therapy as an essential element of their practice, to develop a child’s awareness of an error pattern in their speech sound system by highlighting the semantic confusion his/her error can cause.
Each pack in our minimal pairs series focuses on a particular phonological process and provides minimal pairs of that particular process.
The pack provides a useful resource bank of pictures illustrating common phonological processes which can be used to make a variety of games and activities to supplement therapy in the clinic, at home or at school.
