It appears, in retrospect, that much of the controversy stemmed from the fact that proponents of the two viewpoints had legitimate but orthogonal goals. Thus, psycholinguists were most interested in being able to construct a grammar, that is, a system of rules capable of accounting for all possible language outputs, outputs that were of interest only as a reflection of underlying linguistic competence. Since competence is determined by the interaction of a number of cognitive processes, an individual's performance, that is, his or her verbal behavior, is peripheral to this approach.

The professional may focus on providing materials, activities, and discussions that are designed to facilitate specific cognitive developments, for example, classification, and not attend to the form and level of the linguistic stimuli being presented. The expectation is that the facilitation of cognitive development will have a positive effect on the child's language development. Usually, the activities presented to the child are Piagetian in nature. Or, if one adopted Karmiloff-Smith's (1979) point of view, one would work first on prerequisite general cognitive developments and then attempt to teach the linguistic procedures that are founded on these general principles.
