Background: The importance of parent-child interaction (PCI) for language development has been well established. Studies have suggested that PCI is different with children with PLI compared to typically developing (TD) peers. Many language interventions exploit PCI strategies found to be positively associated with TD language. However, study results are mixed. The Bristol research programme ‘Child Talk - What Works’ is currently exploring the effectiveness of interventions for preschool children. In association with this programme the current review examined research into PCI differences for children with PLI.
