Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

1 Scopus citations


Four relevant appearing themes during the 1990s included the: (1) bootstrapping effects between oral and literate language; (2) importance of supporting emergent literacy; (3) parallels between oral language impairment and academic failures; and (4) challenges in facilitating language learning in both modalities. A concomitant trend emerging in the late 1980s related to the shifting paradigms for assessment and intervention. This article addresses questions posed in Part I related to use of technology and whether there is consistency between theory and application.
