Minimal pairs training can be used to improve your students' ability to discriminate and produce target sounds. Using minimal pairs training with students can help them to understand how their errors impact the meaning of their words. This product is designed for bilingual and monolingual Spanish-speaking students who exhibit the phonological process of consonant sequence reduction, also known as syllable-final consonant deletion. This error pattern involves deleting one of the abutting consonants in a multi-syllabic word, typically the consonant in the syllable-final position (i.e. deLfin, moSca, piNto). This is a common phonological process for many Spanish-speaking students, and yet not many resources exist to assist speech-language pathologists in treating it.
