Mothers participated in a seven-week emergent literacy intervention focused on a range of behaviours they could…

Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) seemingly prefer tablets to other methods of intervention, though professionals posit that a therapist's presence is beneficial. In this experiment, two unique e-stories were created specifically for children with ASD. Ten children with low- or nonverbal ASD heard each story presented on an iPad; one…

This article reports on the design and efficacy of Háblame Bebé, a language-promoting phone application that encourages…

John, Sunila; Veena, Kadiyali D.; Nelson, Hanna; Aithal, Venkataraja Udupi; Patil, Rekha; Rajashekhar, Bellur – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2020
Various speech metrics have been developed to assess and monitor phonological development in young children. Process Density Index (PDI) is one such measure employed to determine the severity of phonological errors and speech intelligibility. The present study explored the utility of PDI as a measure of phonological development in 756…

Janssen, Lonneke; Scheper, Annette; De Groot, Martina; Daamen, Katja; Willemsen, Margot; Vissers, Constance; Verhoeven, Ludo – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2020
The current research investigated the effectiveness of a narrative intervention method aiming to improve oral narrative ability in 8- to 10-year-old children with developmental language disorder (DLD) (n = 6). Oral narrative ability was assessed through a narrative retelling and a narrative generation task of which both the narrative…

Savolainen, Irina; Klippi, Anu; Tykkyläinen, Tuula; Launonen, Kaisa – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2020
Aided communicators often have an opportunity to express themselves with speech-generating devices (SGDs) that produce symbol by symbol (SBS) and/or pre-stored (PS) utterances. Studies on the usage of PS utterances report that these utterances affect conversations positively, but it appears that aided communicators and professionals may have…

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.…
