This course describes qualitative and quantitative active intervention ingredients in relation to children with, or at risk of, developmental language delay (DLD). A framework for categorizing and organizing these ingredients is discussed and the literature regarding these ingredients is summarized for application in practice.

Dr. Pauline Frizelle is a lecturer at University College Cork and a former speech and language therapy manager, with over 20 years experience working with children with a wide range of speech, language and communication needs. In 2008 she was the first speech and language therapist in Ireland to be awarded the (Health Research Board) HRB fellowship for the therapeutic professions, to complete her PhD ‘Investigating relative clauses in children with specific language impairment’. In 2015 Pauline was awarded an ASSISTid Marie Curie Fellowship to begin the development of an electronic assessment of complex syntax at the University of Oxford. She has since built on this work comparing assessment methodologies and developing a robust and engaging assessment of complex syntax. Dr Frizelle is particularly interested in collaborative research projects with clinicians in the community and in the development of new, robust, theoretically-driven interventions, that will result in an equitable public health approach to speech-language pathology for all children. Dr. Frizelle’s current programme of research includes the 1) impact of dosage on intervention effectiveness for children with DLD 2) optimal use of technology when assessing children with DLD 3) the development and implementation of interventions for children with Down syndrome 4) optimal use of key-word signing in schools.
Cristina McKean is Professor of Child Language Development and Disorders at Newcastle University UK, Honorary Research Fellow at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, Melbourne and Adjunct Research Fellow, Griffith University, Queensland. In 2010, after a 20-year career as a Speech and Language Therapist she completed her PhD at Newcastle University focused on understanding lexical and phonological development in children with SLI and was appointed Lecturer in Speech Pathology. She was awarded a three-year post-doctoral fellowship as part of the NHMRC funded Centre of Research Excellence in Child Language in 2013. She leads epidemiological research with global reach which develops and evaluates public health practices for children with and at risk of developmental language disorders. Her work aims to develop equitable, comprehensive public health practices to promote robust language development for all children. This agenda is underpinned by principles of social justice, inter-disciplinary collaboration and co-design. Professor McKean’s current program of research focuses on effective identification of children at risk, interventions, and service delivery design and is informed by four cross-cutting themes: 1) developmental change, 2) the child’s social context, 3) cross-cultural diversity and 4) the power of co-design.
