Teaching Graphic Symbol Combinations to Children with Limited Speech During Shared Story Reading (short summary)

Use
of
symbols
by
young children

The authors aimed to extend research into interventions that might help develop expressive use of symbol combinations. They looked at three types of language structures that are typically used in early language development and modelled them in symbol combinations while reading stories to children who needed symbols to support their use of spoken language.

Their findings were not conclusive, only 4 children took part in the research and while two of them showed improvement in their ability to combine symbols expressively the other two showed less clear and consistent improvement.
