Let’s Skate! A Minimal Pairs Unit For Velar Fronting
Hello! And thank you for stopping by to learn about our latest document for treating the common phonological process of fronting!
What Is Fronting in Speech?
Fronting is a phonological process (pattern of learned speech). Fronting is the term used when sounds that should be made at the back of the mouth, such as /G/ and /K/ are made in the front of the mouth /D/ and /T/. Fronting can be thought of a ‘normal’ pattern of speech up until the age of three and ½. If it is still occurring after that age, speech therapy is recommended.
This packet is targeted at helping all of the student’s who need to reduce velar fronting from their speech. We have designed the activities to be fun, engaging and interactive for children. We have included activities in color and also worksheets in ink-saving black and white. To read all of the contents and directions of this great new unit, please download the preview. You will also get to see many example pages of the unit that way too!
