Contrast therapy focuses on production using contrasting word pairs instead of individual sounds. This approach emphasises sound contrasts necessary to differentiate one word from another. The advantage is that generalisation to untreated phonemes is expected to occur.
The steps are as follows:
Step 1 – Familiarisation – clinician checks that the child knows the meaning of the word
Step 2 – Listen and select – clinician asks the child to pick the picture of the word provided
Step 3 – Production of the minimal pairs words - clinician asks the child to say which picture to pick up.
