Interactional style, elicitation strategies and language production in professional language intervention

Bruce, Barbro LU ; Hansson, Kristina LU and Nettelbladt, Ulrika LU (2007) In Child Language Teaching and Therapy 23(3). p.253-266
Abstract
This paper explores language intervention for children with specific language impairment in Sweden. The elicitation strategies, style of interaction and language production used by speech and language pathologists (SLPs) were analyzed in two conditions, free conversation and training of grammar. In training, the grammatical targets were used significantly more often by the SLPs, but not by the children. In the free conversations the children talked more and had significantly higher mean length of utterance in words and the SLPs linked significantly more to the child's focus. The two conditions represent different, but complementary approaches to language intervention.
