Abstract This paper explores the potential contribution of communication breakdown and repair sequences in phonological intervention. The paper is divided into two parts. In part one, we examine the inclusion of communication breakdown and repair sequences across three current approaches to phonological intervention. The review of this literature highlights a need for researchers to better document the teaching dialogue used in therapy. In part two of this paper, we consider how a unique type of clarifi cation request containing an incorrect production could be applied in an intervention context. Reasons why such a unique counterintuitive clarification request might help children’s speech are considered. The need to better understand the effect of different types of clarifi cation requests on children’s speech production skills during phonological intervention is discussed.

Cet article explore la contribution potentielle des séquences de bris et de réparation de la communication lors de l’intervention phonologique. Il est organisé en deux sections. La première examine l’inclusion des séquences de bris et de réparation de la communication dans trois méthodes actuelles d’intervention en phonologie. Cette analyse documentaire met en valeur la nécessité de mieux documenter l’enseignement de dialogues utilisés en thérapie. Dans la deuxième section, un type unique de demande de clarifi cation contenant une production incorrecte pouvant être utilisé dans un contexte d’intervention est proposé. Des raisons sont données expliquant pourquoi une telle demande de clarifi cation contre-intuitive unique pourrait aider la parole des enfants. Le besoin de mieux comprendre les effets de différents types de demandes de clarifi cation sur les habiletés de production de la parole des enfants lors de l’intervention en phonologie est abordé dans la discussion.
