Reeves, Louisa; Freed, Jenny; Wright, Jonathan; Wood, Elizabeth; Black, Rachael; Hartshorne, Mary; Adams, Catherine – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2019
Oral language skills in childhood are known to predict literacy levels and academic performance. Identification of children's low-average oral language skills in school is challenging when clear criteria for developmental language disorder are not met. There are few studies of targeted, school-based oral language interventions for the older child.…

Law, James; Tulip, Josie; Stringer, Helen; Cockerill, Maria; Dockrell, Julie – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2019
The nature of 'Teacher talk' is likely to have a considerable bearing on the child's learning but measuring the communication environment in the classroom can present challenges. One tool which does this is the Communication Supporting Classroom Observation Tool (CSCOT). Initial use suggested that it was valid and reliably used by specialists…

McDonald, David; Colmer, Sarah; Guest, Susan; Humber, Dawn; Ward, Charlotte; Young, Jane – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2019
The aims of this small-scale study were to explore the feasibility and outcomes of a parent-implemented intervention for two-year-olds at risk of language difficulties, and to explore the implications for the public health model of speech and language therapy (SLT). This adds to limited research into targeted SLT public health interventions. It is…

Reeves, Louisa; Hartshorne, Mary; Black, Rachael; Atkinson, Jill; Baxter, Amanda; Pring, Tim – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2018
Pre-school education has been greatly expanded in the United Kingdom in the last two decades and further expansion is planned. Its provision allows parents to take up employment thus increasing family incomes and it is expected to narrow the gap between socially disadvantaged children and their peers. The latter is important as studies have shown…

Abbot-Smith, Kirsten; Morawska-Patera, Patrycja; Luniewska, Magdalena; Spruce, Megan; Haman, Ewa – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2018
We asked whether parental questionnaires on the heritage language proficiency of bilingual children might elucidate how proficient bilingual children are in their heritage language. We tested 20 UK-based Polish-English bilingual children between 4;5 and 5;9 years on Polish and English versions of the Cross-linguistic Lexical Tasks (CLTs). These…

Seager, Emily; Abbot-Smith, Kirsten – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2017
Language comprehension delays in pre-schoolers are predictive of difficulties in a range of developmental domains. In England, early years practitioners are required to assess the language comprehension of 2-year-olds in their care. Many use a format based on the Early Years Foundation Stage Unique Child Communication Sheet (EYFS:UCCS) in which…

Klatte, Inge S.; Roulstone, Sue – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2016
A common early intervention approach for preschool children with language problems is parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT). PCIT has positive effects for children with expressive language problems. It appears that speech and language therapists (SLTs) conduct this therapy in many different ways. This might be because of the variety of…

Pampoulou, Eliada – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2016
A growing number of research projects show that graphic symbols with linguistic characteristics are one of the tools that professionals use in order to support pupils in inclusive school settings. However, there is scant literature investigating the collaboration between professionals who use these symbols in these settings and, hence, this…

Gibbard, Deborah; Smith, Clare – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2016
Primary language delay remains one of the most prevalent developmental delays in early childhood, particularly in disadvantaged areas. Previous research has established language difficulties and social disadvantage being particular risk factors for adverse outcomes later in life. To help prevent low educational achievement and poorer outcomes,…

Newton, Caroline; Ridgway, Samuel – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2016
Many schools in Western countries like the United Kingdom have become increasingly diverse communities in recent years, and children are likely to be exposed to a variety of accents that are different from their own. While there is a wide body of research exploring accent comprehension in the adult population and in infancy, little has been done…

Lee, Wendy; Pring, Tim – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2016
Extensive evidence exists that many children who experience early socio-economic disadvantage have delayed language development. These delays have been shown to exist when children start school and appear to persist through their education. Interventions that can help these children are desirable to ease the difficulties they have in school and to…

Dockrell, Julie E.; Bakopoulou, Ioanna; Law, James; Spencer, Sarah; Lindsay, Geoff – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2015
There is an increasing emphasis on supporting the oral language needs of children in the classroom. A variety of different measures have been developed to assist this process but few have been derived systematically from the available research evidence. A Communication Supporting Classrooms Observation Tool (CsC Observation Tool) for children aged…

Marshall, Julie; Lewis, Elizabeth – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2014
Speech and language delay occurs in approximately 6% of the child population, and interventions to support this group of children focus on the child and/or the communicative environment. Evidence about the effectiveness of interventions that focus on the environment as well as the (reported) practices of speech and language therapists (SLTs) and…

St. John, Pip; Vance, Maggie – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2014
Research indicates that a significant number of children enter primary school with insufficient vocabulary knowledge. This study investigates whether a small group daily word learning programme delivered by the class teacher can improve word learning in young children. Eighteen children, aged five to six years, with English as an additional…

Myhill, Debra; Watson, Annabel – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2014
For most Anglophone countries, the history of grammar teaching over the past 50 years is one of contestation, debate and dissent: and 50 years on we are no closer to reaching a consensus about the role of grammar in the English/Language Arts curriculum. The debate has been described through the metaphor of battle and grammar wars (Kamler, 1995;…
