Final Consonant Deletion using Multiple Oppositions


Do you have a child who has system-wide final consonant deletion? Are many of their final sounds left off? You may want to consider the multiple oppositions approach, and this product is designed to save you time. Contrast your child’s error of omitting a final sound with up to 3-5 meaningful contrasts to help achieve system-wide phonological change and save time working on each sound individually. Pictures are child-friendly, colorful, and familiar to young children. A great place to start for treating final consonant deletion with a multiple oppositions approach.

There are different therapy approaches that you can use to teach final consonants for children who exhibit final consonant deletion. This packet takes a multiple oppositions approach where you will be contrasting the child’s error with up to 3 to 5 different contrasts. The goal of using multiple pairs (or contrasts) is that we can create more widespread and faster changes to the child’s speech sound system vs. teaching one pair at a time. With 28 different sets to choose from, you have a LOT of options for treating final consonants.

e.g., moo vs. mood, moose, moon
tea vs. teeth, tease, teach, team
bee vs. beep, bead, bees, beach, bean

❶ — Use an evidence-based approach to treating final consonant deletion
❷ — Want guidance on choosing a variety of speech sound target options
❸ — Have a set of high-quality color and B&W cards and pictures

  1. Alexandria S.

    Coming up with multiple opposition sets on your own is sooo tough, this resource is amazing! I love the variety of initial consonants so you can pick the set that works best for each student.

  2. Stacy-Ann D.

    This is the resource I didn’t know I needed! I had never used a multiple oppositions approach for final consonant deletion before find this resource! I love having another approach in my toolbox and this resource makes it so easy to implement. I appreciate the thoughtful target selection and clear visuals.
