English grammar develops in a fairly predictable sequence, and errors are common as children learn grammar rules. Children with language impairments often demonstrate continued difficulty with grammatical morphemes. This journal self-study explores issues related to grammar development, as well as factors to consider when assessing and treating grammar deficits. Clinicians can use this information to improve intervention and optimize grammar development in children with language disorders.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • identify grammatical structures that may be most problematic for children with language impairments to learn and use
  • discuss factors that impact a child’s ability to perceive and produce grammatical morphemes
  • describe at least three tasks that can be used to examine grammar development
  • explain three treatment approaches that can be used to address grammar errors
