An attempt to modify the articulatory behavior of a large number of children through use of the paired-stimuli technique is documented. The technique is based on the assumption that target phonemes produced acceptably in a training word will generalize to other phonetic contexts through use of a behavior modification program. Using the McDonald Screening Deep Test, the children were tested immediately before, immediately after, and two weeks after training on the target phoneme. The program is considered successful because of its effectiveness and its ease of administration.
