  • Thank you both so very much! I’m SO appreciative of the information – I just bought the SCIP app and have learned a lot just reading the manual! I feel much more confident using these approaches after reading your blog and reading the journal articles.

    • That’s wonderful to hear! You can make so much progress when you choose an approach that best matches your child’s difficulties.

  • Is it still considered a phoneme collapse (and thus make sense to use multiple oppositions) if it’s only happening in certain positions of the word? For example, he can produce certain sounds in medial and/or final, but for initial substitutes an /h/.

    • Hi Emily,
      This is a great question for Dr. Lynn Williams to answer. I’d recommend you get in touch with her.

  • Thank you for the presentation, it was so informative.

    I will definitely look into acquiring the app.

  • this is amazing! I have practiced for over 20 years and have never heard of this (or don’t remember it from the super sonic train we call graduate school!!). Thank you for reposting this and the video with Dr. Williams! It was so informative and applicable! I will put this into use TODAY!

    • It’s a wonderful approach to know, especially when a child has a phoneme collapse!

  • Thanks so much for this valuable information! I have a student who is substituting “g” for a variety of sounds in medial position, and “k” for a variety of sounds in medial and initial position. Is it possible to do multiple oppositions with medial position?

  • This is great information! do you have a blog on implementation for the multiple oppositions approach? Or can you recommend a resource that I can checkout to learn more about implementation?

    • The Interventions for Speech Sound Disorders in Children 2nd Ed has an entire chapter on Multiple Oppositions

  • for the SPAC data sheet, I am confused as to what you put in the adult column? The sounds the child doesn’t have? It is confusing to me that the same sound is handwritten next to the adult sound. Is there a blog of video that explains this? I looked and looked and could not find one!

    • Hi there, there is also an example of a completed chart that Dr Lynn Williams provided to help SLPs understand how to fill it in.
