Use of Delayed Auditory Feedback with Motorically Involved Children.
Carlson, Faith; And Others
A seven-step procedure was developed to improve the intelligibility of children with significant motor problems (such as cerebral palsy). The procedure employs delayed auditory feedback to help the children control their rate of speaking to make it commensurate with their motor abilities. The procedure was pilot-tested with six children. Results revealed that the intensity as well as the time constraints imposed by the paradigm were not of significant benefit to the child. A revised format emphasized transfer of skills to situations outside the therapy room. At the close of therapy, two children were found to have improved their speech-sound productions. (CL)
