Blackwell, Anna K. M.; Harding, Sam; Babayigit, Selma; Roulstone, Sue – Communication Disorders Quarterly, 2015
The importance of parent-child interaction (PCI) for language development has been well established. This has led many speech and language therapy (SLT) interventions to focus on modifying PCI as a means to improving children's early language delay. However, the success of such programs is mixed. The current review compares PCI, observed in…
