Research Paper Guidelines
1. To give you experience in analyzing and synthesizing (i.e, do not write a series of abstracts) current evidence-based practice research in the area of child language impairments.
2. To share your new knowledge with your classmates in a clinically applicable manner.
4. To provide you with a format for future in-service training sessions.
After your initial review of the literature and abstracting two journal articles, the results of which should be included in your research paper (NOT the entire abstract), begin researching your topic in depth using other professional and scientific journals, texts (but use carefully) and periodicals (at least 6 references but no more than 8). Your resources should be used generally as primary resources, i.e., you should not have a series of secondary citations from research in the sixties. Sources should be professionally based (i.e., not websites, parent associations, blogs) and should be dated during or AFTER 2008. You may use ONE resource which was published before 2008 but after 2000.
Write a 6-7 content pages research paper and then add 1-2 pages for your references. DO NOT count the cover page as page 1.
My topic is the use off apps in language therapy -- how apps aid in language development

my topic is CHILDREN using apps (on tablets, iPads, mobile devices) in language therapy. In other words, how apps help children flourish and develop in their language skills such as word finding, sentence structure, communication, ect. AKA pragmatics, syntax, morphology, semantics, (https://courses.lumenlearning.com/boundless-psychology/chapter/introduction-to-language/) I have to ANALYZE and SYNTHESIZE this paper, not summarize.
