COVID-19 terms of use: Can be used for distance learning or teletherapy purposes: these sheets are non-interactive, and the PDF can be displayed on a screen. You also have my permission to share in a PRIVATE Google classroom, using private Google drive links, via email, or via mail with students on your caseload or parents of students on your caseload.

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 that he or she heard. Each sound is paired with a visual and written “sound descriptor”.

Next, target “Word Production of Minimal Pairs” easily. 4 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!
