This poster was presented at the LCICD conference 2022, covering the pilot study and data used for the authors thesis, as well as an overview for the PhD project's direction.'

The data presented in this poster compares parental language, parental behaviour and turn-taking pre- and post-intervention, looking at 10 minute observationa10-minuteof 16 parent-child dyads book-sharing. The pilot findings suggest that DBS improves child language by teaching parents to make book-sharing more enjoyable and conversational, allowing for scaffolding opportunities, discussion to improve child understanding and furthermore, allowing the child to practise speaking.

The aim of the phD project is to work with non-NHS parental services & schools to deliver an adapted online dialogic book-sharing intervention. We shall employ a mixed method design; using coded observations of parent-child interactions to assess the efficacy of the intervention. Interviews with participating services and parents will provide a qualitative insight into the benefits and barriers of the intervention, as well as the feasibility of the intervention for services, going forward. I will explore how the intervention was adapted, the recruitment of participants and the methodology of the study.
