Abstract

This study explores the types and methods of interventions used and the challenges faced by professionals and parents or caregivers when treating children with language disorders. Six therapists consisting of five speech and language pathologist/ therapists (SLP/T) and an occupational therapist (OT), and nine parents of children with language disorders were interviewed. Research findings showed that the most common approach used by these therapists is play therapy, followed by ABA, AAC and Hanen programme. However, these approaches were not fully utilised; only selected strategies were adopted and modified to fit the children undergoing treatment. Direct interventions are mostly applied to treat direct speech and language problems; indirect interventions include techniques incorporated through play, carryover of activities at home, and some parent and teacher training. Parents tend to apply daily social situations as an indirect form of stimulation for their child's language production. An incorporation of both direct and indirect methods has better impact on improving these children's condition. As for challenges, parents are the top challenge for professionals, whereas parents see therapy services as their primary concern.
