Treatment of Phonological Disability Using the Method of Meaningful Minimal Contrast

Two Case Studies

    The results of a treatment procedure using meaningful minimal contrasts are reported. The procedure was successful in reducing the frequency of the following processes: final consonant deletion, stopping of fricatives, and fronting of velars, which were exhibited in the speech of two children with phonological disability. Generalization of response to non-treatment words was also evidenced.
