SLP TechTools Minimal Pairs is a speech therapy app developed by speech-language pathologists to target phonological disorders in children, pre-Kindergarten through 6th grade.

NOTE: The application provides full functionality for Cluster Reduction - one of the eight processes - allowing you to fully test out the application and decide to purchase SLP Minimal Pairs Full, also available on the App Store.

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 sessions.

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 therapist pushes the button.

Ratings and Reviews

Does what it says it will do


This free app does just what it says it will do. It lets you test out the format on one target process (cluster reduction) to see if you like it enough to purchase the full version. It doesn't have a ton of bells and whistles, but it has good therapy targets and an easy way to take data. I will probably buy the full version soon...just a little too pricy for an impulse purchase. :-)

This app is an extensive but user friendly program to use with a variety of students with phonological process disorders, articulation issues, and or apraxia. The data is easy to negotiate, the pictures are great, and the voice output is clear. The free version gives you an excellent idea of what the full app is like. I highly recommend this app for speech paths in ECSE or elementary schools or clinics.



This app is just what I was looking for/needing!! The kids I work with LOVE it, and I love that I have control over the targets and can take data. The fast pace of the carryover phase is great and the kids love it! Love the fact that REAL words are used. It's evident that this app was not only well thought out, but developed by an SLP. Can't wait to see more apps from this develope
