Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

1 Scopus citations


Although recent evidence has shown that conversational contexts may be more effective in achieving spontaneous use of language targets, many clinicians continue to employ more structured and less naturalistic contexts for their therapy. The purpose of the current article is to present a therapy approach that is structured, yet incorporates the communicative aspects of more naturalistic language therapy.
