Stories are the perfect way to engage our little phonological kids and start to teach them concepts related to their speech errors to facilitate therapy. The Final Consonant Deletion Story is a great place to START therapy as it promotes hands-on learning activities (visual, auditory, tactile) to and teaches specific metalinguistic concepts
(sounds can have 'tails'), so that they understand with easy to understand explanations and visuals, their phonological process better.

The Final Consonant Deletion Story explores that just likes animals have tails, so do words and can make more sense prior to engaging in minimal pairs therapy.
The story uses visuals, provides opportunities for auditory bombardment and discrimination of minimal pairs so that you can get an idea about the child’s phonological system. The pictures are broken down into words that end in plosives, fricative and nasals - you may find manner of articulation specific errors. These concepts are then carried throughout therapy and can help consolidate the process to other sounds. UPLOAD this story on your iPad for a Phonological Story on the go or laminate and have on the table.
Visual, auditory and tactile activities are suggested so that therapy sessions can be dynamic, fun and interactive. You can then introduce minimal pairs. Minimal Pairs cards (in color and blackline) are included for the following sounds:
• Plosives (13 pairs - 26 cards)
• Fricatives (13 pairs - 26 cards)
• Nasals (9 pairs - 18 cards)
• Total of 70 color, 70 black line cards
Pg. 4-6: Visual, Auditory and Tactile pages with activities to help support the concept
Pg. 7-8: Minimal Pairs word lists in final position (with blank cards to draw your own)
Pg. 9-14: Tail and No Tail Sound visuals in various sizes and activity sheets in COLOR to use as part of therapy
Pg. 15-22: Minimal Pairs Cards in final position - COLOR
Pg. 23-30: A ‘Tail Sound Story’ which introduces the metalinguistic concepts of 'tail' sounds. Great to laminate for functional use. Opportunities for auditory discrimination and bombardment are provided
Pg. 31-36:Tail Sound BLACKLINE visuals and activity sheets to color and send home for carryover
Pg. 37-44: Minimal Pairs cards in final position BLACKLINE - great to color or for homework
16 page NO PRINT story is included as a SEPARATE PDF so that you can upload to your iPad, tablet or computer
I hope you enjoy a refreshing and meaningful way to teach phonological processes.
