Do you have kids with the phonological process of fronting who find minimal pairs therapy really challenging? This resource is the place to START therapy as it promotes hands-on learning activities (visual, auditory, tactile) to teach specific metalinguistic concepts
(sounds can be ‘front’ or ‘back’), so that they understand with easy to understand explanations and visuals, their phonological process better.

The Fronting & Backing Story is a lovely way to introduce the concepts prior to engaging in minimal pairs therapy.
By using visuals, auditory bombardment and discrimination you can get an idea about the child’s phonological system. 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. You can then introduce minimal pairs. Minimal Pairs cards (in color and blackline) are included for the following sounds:
T-K (9 pairs - 18 cards)
D-G (7 pairs - 14 cards)
T-K final (7 pairs - 14 cards)
D-G final (7 pairs - 14 cards)
Pg. 4-6: Visual, Auditory and Tactile pages with activities to help support the concept
Pg. 7-8: Minimal Pairs word lists in initial and final position (with blank cards to draw your own)

Pg. 20-26: A ‘Fronting and Backing Story’ which introduces the metalinguistic concepts of ‘front’ and ‘back’ sounds. Great to laminate for functional use. Opportunities for auditory discrimination and bombardment are provided
