Abstract Establishing the effects of speech and language services is an issue of great importance for speech-language pathologists. In the past decade, a variety of research designs have been used in treatment efficacy studies. Each of these have their strengths and weaknesses. Recognizing this is critical if clinicians are to appropriately apply information from treatment efficacy studies. In this paper, efficacy studies of intervention for child language impairments which have been published over the last decade are reviewed and evaluated in light of design issues.



L’établissement de l’incidence des services d’orthophonie et d’audiologie revêt une grande importance pour les orthophonistes et les audiologistes. Au cours de la dernière décennie, on a utilisé différentes méthodes de recherche pour effectuer des études sur l’efficacité des traitements. Chacune de ces méthodes comportait des forces et des faiblesses. Les cliniciens doivent en tenir compte s’ils veulent utiliser l’information de ces études de manière appropriée. Le présent article passe en revue les études sur l’efficacité des interventions auprès des enfants souffrant d’un trouble du langage qui ont été publiées au cours des dix dernières années. Il les examine du point de vue des méthodes utilisées.
