In probably the most influential generativist approach to this issue, the Agreement-Tense Omission model (ATOM), Wexler (1998) suggests that while children have correctly set the tense and agreement parameters of their language from a very early stage, they are subject to a unique checking constraint in early development which means one of these features may be optionally underspecified. This theory makes a number of predictions that are seemingly borne out by the evidence. First, that in languages in which subjects can be dropped (‘pro-drop’ languages), the rate of OI errors will be very low because children do not have to deal with checking the agreement feature on the subject.
