Do you have children who substitute ‘t’ or ‘d’ for ‘s’ and just cannot find appropriate homework? Are you using the minimal pairs approach, and want a variety of simple, parent-friendly print-and-go sheets to provide for home practice? Or do you just want a packet supporting the evidence-based minimal pairs approach you have chosen?
⭐ This resource contains TWO packets for the stopping of ‘s’. Targets include /s-t/ and /s-d/ ⭐
This packet was designed to help you:
➊ — Feel confident that you are giving meaningful homework using the minimal pairs approach
➋ — Save time by having one resource for all of your therapy and homework needs
➌ — Effectively communicate with parent letters and easy-to-understand homework instructions
➍ — Be able to simply take baseline and generalization data to see whether your students are making progress
➎ — Use many of the sheets in BOTH face-to-face and teletherapy practices
