This phonological disorder packet targets backing. Just print & go- it’s no prep!

At the top of each page is the option for an “Auditory Sorting/ Discrimination” activity. You will read the minimal pairs on the page, and the child will point to the sound or sounds that he or she heard. Each sound is paired with a visual and written “sound descriptor”.

Next, target “Word Production of Minimal Pairs” easily. 6 minimal pairs are provided per page.

Last, make sure to read the “Auditory Bombardment” word list to the child. Slight amplification is usually recommended for this activity.

These sheets also provide easy homework/ carry over for your students!
