Abstract

The role computer technology will play in the provision of intervention services to young children with communication disorders depends on providing information that demonstrates its impact. The ways that computer software are consistent with general guidelines for providing effective and efficient intervention are discussed. In addition, some types of computer software are adaptable to cooperative intervention approaches with parents and early childhood educators. Some of the beneficial characteristics of computer software to consider are developmental appropriateness, features that increase motivation and attention, and consistency with children's approaches to learning. The potential usefulness of computer software in intervention is illustrated with examples from a child with delays in language and reading.
