A focus group of seven speech and language therapists (SLTs) who work with children with phonological difficulties was invited to share their views on their current ways of working. Qualitative data was generated through discussion of two video-taped recordings of children with phonological difficulties and a series of brainstorming tasks. The results indicate the use of an eclectic approach, a mixture of theories rather than a single one. Similarities and differences between SLTs are identified. Implications for the development of clinical guidelines and the investigation of effectiveness are discussed.
