This study was a within subject, pretest posttest design intended to determine if a three session parent-training program (PTP) would be effective in facilitating morphosyntax in children with or suspected of having specific language impairment (SLI) over the course of 5 weeks. This was measured with the SPELT-P2. In addition, the researcher aimed to determine if parents learned from and were satisfied with the PTP, which was measured by a questionnaire given before and after the PTP was implemented. There were six parent-child dyads in this study. Three children participants demonstrated an increase in standard scores on the SPELT-P2 and three children participants demonstrated a decrease in standard scores. Parent participants demonstrated an overall increase in scores on knowledge, perceptions, and strategies learned during the PTP. Results and clinical implications are discussed.
