dc.description.abstractSpeech-language pathologists (SLPs) in school settings are faced with many considerations when selecting appropriate interventions to support positive educational outcomes for students commencing school, within an evidence-based practice framework and accounting for service delivery constraints. However, decisions regarding interventions are often made without taking into consideration the views and perspectives of students who have received the interventions in the past. The aim of this study was to investigate the perceptions of students in their first formal year of schooling involved in a 24-week, book-based, oral language and early literacy intervention. The participants were nine students, aged between 5 and 6 years from three different classrooms, in the same school. Student responses were analysed using thematic analysis. Several key themes emerged, including the importance of students being actively involved in the program, parental involvement, and the students identifying the relationship between their own behaviour and engagement during the program. The results suggest that SLPs and other staff who facilitate classroom-based oral language programs should ensure that program goals are clearly ommunicated and engagement explicitly encouraged.
