Bruce, Barbro; Hansson, Kristina – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2019
Children with a history of developmental language disorder (DLD) entering school are a challenge for classroom teachers. Teachers are often not very familiar with DLD, and language difficulties in school age children are often not obvious in context-supported everyday language. However, their language is still vulnerable. The teachers' way of…

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…

Lee, Sue Ann S. – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2018
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…

Sundström, Simon; Löfkvist, Ulrika; Lyxell, Björn; Samuelsson, Christina – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2018
Children with hearing impairment (HI) are at an increased risk of developing speech and language problems similar to those of children with developmental language disorder (DLD), including difficulties with phonology and grammar. This study investigated similarities and differences in phonological and grammatical production between children with…

Dodd, Barbara; Ttofari-Eecen, Kyriaki; Brommeyer, Katherine; Ng, Kelly; Reilly, Sheena; Morgan, Angela – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2018
Some children's speech impairment resolves spontaneously. Others have persistent problems affecting academic and social development. Identifying early markers that reliably predict long-term outcome would allow better prioritization for preschool intervention. This article evaluates the significance of different types of speech errors, made by 93…

Archibald, Lisa M. D. – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2017
Children with speech, language, and communication needs (SLCN) form a highly heterogeneous group, including those with an unexplained delay in language development known as specific language impairment (SLI). There is growing recognition that multiple mechanisms underlie the range of profiles observed in these children. Broadly speaking, both the…

Waring, Rebecca; Eadie, Patricia; Liow, Susan Rickard; Dodd, Barbara – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2017
While little is known about why children make speech errors, it has been hypothesized that cognitive-linguistic factors may underlie phonological speech sound disorders. This study compared the phonological short-term and phonological working memory abilities (using immediate memory tasks) and receptive vocabulary size of 14 monolingual preschool…

Crowe, Kathryn; Cumming, Tamara; McCormack, Jane; Baker, Elise; McLeod, Sharynne; Wren, Yvonne; Roulstone, Sue; Masso, Sarah – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2017
Early childhood educators are frequently called on to support preschool-aged children with speech sound disorders and to engage these children in activities that target their speech production. This study explored factors that acted as facilitators and/or barriers to the provision of computer-based support for children with speech sound disorders…

Geronikou, Eleftheria; Rees, Rachel – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2016
This study investigated the possibility that similar speech error patterns in children may arise from different patterns of underlying speech processing difficulties. Four Greek children (aged 4;7-5;6 years) with similar speech output difficulties were assessed with a range of experimental tasks with phonologically matched items in order to…

Melogno, Sergio; Pinto, Maria Antonietta; Levi, Gabriel – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2015
This study analyses the case of a gifted child (9;6 year) with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) who had a particularly high verbal IQ (146) and a specific cognitive, linguistic, and metalinguistic profile. A description of some salient behavioral characteristics of the child is provided. A metalinguistic ability test assessing metagrammatical,…

Feehan, Angela; Francis, Charmaine; Bernhardt, B. May; Colozzo, Paola – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2015
Two 6-year-old male fraternal twins each received 8 weeks of morphosyntactic and phonological intervention in counterbalanced order. Progress occurred for most targets and measures, with each child making greater progress for either phonology or morphosyntax during the corresponding unitary-domain block. Gains were maintained during the subsequent…

Tattersall, Patricia J.; Nelson, Nickola Wolf; Tyler, Ann A. – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2015
Prior research has shown possible relations among nonword repetition (NWR), vocabulary, and phonological processing skills in children with and without language impairment. This study was designed to investigate whether relationships would differ for students with primary language impairment (PLI) and typical language (TL) and whether they would…

Masso, Sarah; McCabe, Patricia; Baker, Elise – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2014
Accurate production of polysyllables (words of three or more syllables) can be challenging for children with phonological impairment. Research with typically developing children has suggested that children can improve their polysyllable productions in response to requests for clarification containing an incorrect model of a target word (Gozzard et…

MacRoy-Higgins, Michelle; Shafer, Valerie L.; Schwartz, Richard G.; Marton, Klara – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2014
This study examined the influence of phonotactic probability on word recognition in English-speaking toddlers. Typically developing toddlers completed a preferential looking paradigm using familiar words, which consisted of either high or low phonotactic probability sound sequences. The participants' looking behavior was recorded in response to…
