Intended for students who have multiple sound errors, the multiple oppositions approach is an intervention that we highly recommend you familiarise yourself with, especially if you treat children who produce one sound for many sounds. Fun AISP fact, when Rebecca was a new graduate speech pathologist, she read up and decided to implement the multiple oppositions approach with one of her students. She was absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the growth and progress that was made with a very hard-to-understand child, it made her fall in love with speech sound disorders!
