A meta-analysis was carried out of interventions for children with primary developmental speech and language delays/disorders. The data were categorized depending on the control group used in the study (no treatment, general stimulation, or routine speech and language therapy) and were considered in terms of the effects of intervention on expressive and receptive phonology, syntax, and vocabulary. The outcomes used in the analysis were dependent on the aims of the study; only the primary… 
A Meta-analysis on the Effectiveness of Intervention in Children with Primary Speech and Language Delays/Disorders: Focusing on China and the U.S.
TLDR
Investigation of the immediate and long-term effects of intervention for children with primary speech and language delays/disorders found type of measure, language of intervention, parental involvement, intervention content, and study quality, as well as the duration of intervention significantly moderated the effect size of intervention effectiveness.
Is speech and language therapy effective for children with primary speech and language impairment? Report of a randomized control trial.
TLDR
An average of 6 h of speech and language therapy in a 6-month period can produce significant improvement in performance, and it has been shown to be more effective than no treatment over the same 6- month period for children with primary speech and/or language impairment.

TLDR
There is evidence to suggest that focused stimulation and modelling of single words can lead to improvements in the language of children with late language emergence and subsequent treatment studies should examine the application of these effective treatments to larger, population-based samples.
Delayed Referral in Children with Speech and Language Disorders for Rehabilitation Services
TLDR
This study showed that before diagnosis of the child’s disorder is definitely given, the physicians’ counseling regarding the importance and necessity of early diagnosis, as well as of screening and diagnostic tests play a significant role in the time of referral for receiving speech and language pathology services.
Population-Based Screening of Children for Specific Speech and Language Impairment in Germany: A Systematic Review
TLDR
The benefit of population-based language screening of preschool children with SLI is not proven and controlled screening studies are therefore necessary.
The Influence of Quantitative Intervention Dosage on Oral Language Outcomes for Children With Developmental Language Disorder: A Systematic Review and Narrative Synthesis.
TLDR
Findings to date suggest that there is a point in vocabulary and morphosyntax interventions after which there are diminishing returns from additional dosage, and the literature suggests that session frequency can be reduced.
The effectiveness of parent-implemented language interventions: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
The results indicate that parent-implemented language interventions have a significant, positive impact on receptive and expressive language skills of children with and without intellectual disabilities.
Intervention effects on spoken-language outcomes for children with autism: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Early intervention improves spoken-language outcomes for children with ASD, and the largest effects are found when both parent and clinician implement the intervention.

TLDR
Results from multilevel modeling indicate that parent-implemented interventions may be an effective treatment for children with expressive and receptive LI and that child receptive language and parent use of matched turns predicted expressive language growth.

TLDR
The present replication and extension of these findings with a sound methodology enables greater confidence in their use for prognostic, planning, and research purposes.
Effects of treatment on linguistic and social skills in toddlers with delayed language development.
TLDR
Significant group differences were found for each of the variables, indicating facilitative effects of the treatment, and increases were observed in areas that were not specifically targeted by the intervention.
Two approaches to the facilitation of grammar in children with language impairment: an experimental evaluation.
TLDR
The results support the viability of the specific contributions of the focused stimulation procedures and the cyclical goal attack strategy and the participation of parents as primary intervention agents in grammar facilitation programs.
Effectiveness of speech intervention for phonological disorders: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Thirty children of preschool age with severe phonological disorders were randomly assigned to two treatment groups, and group 1 showed significant differences on scores of phonological measures (APP‐R, GFTA, and PCC) after the first 4 months of the study.
Selection of children with specific language deficits.

TLDR
A standard approach to the selection of children with specific language deficit was devised based on a current definition of specificlanguage deficit that depends heavily on exclusion criteria and its effectiveness for the purposes of clinical research and intervention studies is discussed.
Prevalence and natural history of primary speech and language delay: findings from a systematic review of the literature.
TLDR
The prevalence and the natural history of primaryspeech and language delays were two of four domains covered in a systematic review of the literature related to screening for speech and language delay carried out for the NHS in the UK and suggest that both concurrent and predictive case definition can be problematic.
Randomised controlled trial of community based speech and language therapy in preschool children
TLDR
This study provides little evidence for the effectiveness of speech and language therapy compared with watchful waiting over 12 months, and service providers should reconsider the appropriateness, timing, nature, and intensity of such therapy in preschool children.

An analysis of the data for this study revealed several significant ES differences for subject and treatment characteristics, and the nature of the differences and their relationship to intervention are discussed.
