- A study by Feng and Powers (2005) found that grammatical mini-lessons targeting students' error patterns resulted in improved short- and long-term accuracy.
- In contrast to spoken language, written language is a more concrete, permanent modality for working on sentence structure (ASHA, 2001).
- SLPs should scaffold their instruction of syntactic structures to help students express complex thoughts coherently (Nippold, Mansfield, & Billow, 2007).
100% Grammar incorporates these principles and is also based on expert professional practice.
