AIM: ✅ — To enhance the pragmatic and meaning-based contrast behind minimal pairs therapy in an engaging way.

There are 5 mini pictures for 5 practice attempts per word. Entertaining for the preschool-aged population who are confused by the contrast approach.
How can I reach 100 trials?
Use the following equation to figure out how many practice trials are needed:
➊ – Say 4 word pairs x25 each = 100 trials
➋ — Say 5 word pairs x20 each = 100 trials
➌ — Say 6 word pairs x 15 each = 90 trials
➍ — Say 8 word pairs x 15 each = 120 trials
➎ — Say 10 word pairs x 10 each = 100 trials
➏ — You might include this resource as one part of your session to reach 100 trials
