The (mis-)use of telegraphic input in child language intervention

Results and conclusions
The evidence that is available to date provides no compelling advantages to the use of telegraphic models to children who have typical or impaired language learning and raises some concerns that frequent use of telegraphic input could have a negative impact on development. Therefore, until clinical evidence appears demonstrating superior responsivity to and no negative impact of telegraphic input, clinicians should avoid using such input in their clinical management of children with language delay.
