SLP TechTools Minimal Pairs is a speech therapy app developed by speech language pathologists to assist SLPs as they target phonological and articulation disorders in children, pre-Kindergarten through 6th grade.
The app includes fun and engaging pictures of 367 words to facilitate discrimination and accurate production of speech sounds. It covers 8 commonly used phonological processes: Final Consonant Deletion, Fronting, Cluster Reduction, Prevocalic Voicing Gliding, Stopping, Depalatalization, Deaffrication and Gliding.
As an In App Purchase, users can build custom processes with photos from their iPad Camera, Photo Library or Dropbox Account. Spoken word samples are recorded from the iPad.
Three practice formats include: auditory discrimination, contrast drill, and repetition drill. Progress monitoring in client history tracks improvement and allows users to observe improvement over multiple speech therapy sessions. Results can be emailed as you wish.
The app gives the therapist maximum control of each session. All buttons are oriented near the therapist and away from the child. The pictures will not change nor will the voiced word repeat unless the speech therapist pushes the button. Voice recording and playback are available for immediate feedback.
