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.…

Geronikou, Eleftheria; Vance, Maggie; Wells, Bill; Thomson, Jenny – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2019
Intervention with children with speech and language difficulties has been proven beneficial compared with no treatment yet, knowing what type of intervention to provide remains a challenge. Studies of English-speaking children indicate that intervention targeting the production of morphological targets may have a positive effect on phonological…

Dawes, Emily; Leitão, Suze; Claessen, Mary; Kane, Robert – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2019
Although children with developmental language disorder demonstrate poor inferential comprehension, few studies have evaluated the effect of interventions to improve inferencing. This study aimed to investigate the efficacy of a small-group intervention designed to improve oral inferential comprehension of narrative discourse. Thirty-seven 5- to…

Nicholas, Katrina; Alt, Mary; Hauwiller, Ella – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2019
The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of variability in teaching prepositions to preschoolers with typical development (TD) and developmental language disorder (DLD). Input variability during teaching can enhance learning, but is target dependent. We hypothesized that high variability of objects would improve preposition learning.…

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…

The goals of the present study were to (1) examine the effects of the multiple opposition phonological approach on improving phoneme production accuracy in children with severe phonological disorders and (2) explore whether the multiple opposition approach is feasible for the telepractice service delivery model. A multiple-baseline,…

Flanagan, Kieran J.; Ttofari Eecen, Kyriaki – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2018
Approximately 10% of children with a speech sound disorder present with an inconsistent phonological disorder, characterized by inconsistent production of words across multiple trials. A number of studies have provided evidence of the efficacy of core vocabulary therapy for the remediation of this speech sound disorder with a dosage of two…

Shahmahmood Toktam, Maleki; Zahra, Soleymani; AliPasha, Meysami; Ali, Mashhadi; Shahin, Nematzadeh – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2018
Deficits in working memory (WM) have been reported repeatedly in children with primary language impairment (PLI) and may significantly contribute to the language difficulties that are experienced by these children. However, interventional studies within the field regarding the cross-domain effects between working memory and language are limited,…

White, Sarah; Spencer, Sarah – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2018
Many speech and language therapy (SLT) services have limited capacity for providing school-based input. Some offer commissioned SLT input, to enhance the service provided by the UK National Health Service (NHS), giving schools the option to increase the amount and scope of SLT intervention. This two-tiered model of service provision is relatively…

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,…

Parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT) is widely used by speech and language therapists to improve the interactions between children with delayed language development and their parents/carers. Despite favourable reports of the therapy from clinicians, little evidence of its effectiveness is available. We investigated the effects of PCIT as…

Wilson, Jean; Aldersley, Anna; Dobson, Catherine; Edgar, Silke; Harding, Christian; Luckins, Jessie; Wiseman, Fiona; Pring, Tim – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2015
Word finding difficulties are often seen in children with language difficulties. Their problem is readily observed and has led to investigations of its nature and encouraged attempts at intervention. Semantic errors in their naming suggest that their knowledge of items is poorly developed and that therapies to strengthen it may be effective.…
