The author discusses the advantages of language sample analysis for bilingual children (why a clinician should use it with this population) as well as procedural considerations for collecting and analyzing language samples with this cohort. Two hypothetical case studies are provided and illustrate specific clinical actions that could be taken, based on current literature. The author notes gaps in research with language sample analysis include those related to genre and modality. These should be an emphasis for future research.
