The study employed systematic review. Journals which determined the effectiveness of indirectly implemented language techniques in school aged children who were 6-12 years old, those that used non-clinician language techniques to improve the length of utterance of the participants, available in full text for free and published in 2008 to 2018 were included. The search in EBSCO database yielded 648 studies. Upon abstract and full-text screening of journals, one (1) study qualified based on the inclusion criteria set. The methods and results of the study were examined and analyzed, specifically the effect size and treatment outcomes, to determine the effectiveness of the indirect implemented language facilitating technique used in the study. The study concluded that current evidence regarding the effects of indirect implemented language facilitating techniques to the mean length of utterance (MLU) of school-aged children with language impairment was still limited. Parent-implemented language facilitating technique provided significant effect on the MLU of school-aged children with language impairment. However, there is still discrepancy with its effectiveness as it did not achieve the highest level of evidence by American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
