Nordahl-Hansen, Donolato, Lervåg, Norbury & Melby-Lervåg (2019): PROTOCOL: Language interventions for improving oral language outcomes in children with neurodevelopmental disorders: A systematic review
I: Campbell Systematic Reviews, Online first, Open Access
This protocol presents the plan for a systematic review that will investigate the effect of oral language interventions for children with intellectual disability (ID), language disorder (LD), autism spectrum disorder (ASD), Down syndrome (DS), Williams syndrome (WS), and fragile X syndrome (FXS). Language development is a highly frequent area of difficulty for children within these diagnostic groups, and oral language interventions are therefore important. However, to provide better evidence‐informed practice, we need to investigate what oral language interventions are effective and for whom. The systematic review will not only investigate the effect of oral language interventions targeted at specific disorders but also identify interventions that may be yield similar improvements in different neurodevelopmental disorders.
