AKKTIV-KomIgång inom barnlogopedi: pilotutvärdering av en utbildning till föräldrar som har barn med grav språkstörning

By Catharina Ateva and Petra Sjöström

Abstract

The purpose of the present pilot study was to evaluate the parental intervention ComAlong at the Division of Child Language, for parents of children with severe language impairment. ComAlong is one of the parental interventions developed in the AKKTIV project. AKKTIV stands for augmentative and alternative communication –early intervention. The present study consists of a case study, a compilation of course evaluations and an interview with the two leaders of the course. No unitary results were found in the case study, concerning the effect on parents’ style of communication, parents’ opinions of parent-child interaction, effect on the family, or the communication and adaptive development of the child. The course evaluations and the interview show that parents and course-leaders consider ComeAlong to be an appropriate early intervention at the Division of Child Language. The study provides suggestions for further research on ComAlong at the Division of Child Language
