To perform a systematic review of the research relating to the outcomes of speech-language pathology (SLP) intervention for children who have suffered maltreatment and are in Out Of Home Care.
A search was performed of 10 electronic databases to identify studies which addressed two research questions. Structured review procedures were used to select and evaluate research studies.
No studies met the review criteria, although some informal articles provided insight into potential ways to support children who had suffered maltreatment.
While there is a growing body of evidence that identifies an increasing number of children who have suffered maltreatment and are at high risk of communication impairment, there is a significant gap in the SLP research literature relating to the investigation of the outcomes of communication intervention for this cohort.
