Sonoda, Yuma; Yoshida, Nao; Kawami, Kazunori; Kitamura, Akihiro; Ogawa, Nobuhiro; Yamakawa, Isamu; Kim, Hyoh; Sanada, Mitsuru; Imai, Shinji; Urushitani, Makoto – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: The aim of this study was to investigate a structured approach for effective speech therapy (ST) for dysarthria and speech-related quality of life in patients with sporadic spinocerebellar degeneration (SCD), including cerebellar-type multiple-system atrophy and cerebellar cortical atrophy. Method: Twenty-two patients with SCD…

Sefotho, Maximus Monaheng – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2021
The aim of this study was to explore career construction of a man with dysarthria and how he resiled to the golden age of 50 despite disability and illiteracy. Through a qualitative idiographic case study, three members of Seithati's family were interviewed: the mother, a sister and a brother. The interpretative phenomenological analysis was…

Rehfeld, David M.; Sulak, Tracey N. – Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, 2021
Purpose: Children with speech sound disorders feature prominently on the caseloads of speech-language pathologists working in schools, with many receiving services once or twice weekly for 20-30 min. This study compared the outcomes of services provided twice weekly for 30 min to those provided 4 times weekly for 15 min to examine their…

Byers, Beth A.; Bellon-Harn, Monica L.; Allen, Madeline; Saar, Karen Whisenhunt; Manchaiah, Vinaya; Rodrigo, Hansapani – Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, 2021
Purpose: This study examined intervention intensity and service delivery with school-age children with mild or mild-moderate speech sound disorders. The commonly used business-as-usual (BAU) service delivery model and a shorter, more frequent, individual model (experimental [EXP]) were compared. Method: A between-subjects group design was…

Mendoza Ramos, Viviana; Paulyn, Charlotte; Van den Steen, Leen; Hernandez-Diaz Huici, Maria E.; De Bodt, Marc; Van Nuffelen, Gwen – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2021
Background: The articulatory accuracy of patients with dysarthria is one of the most affected speech dimensions with a high impact on speech intelligibility. Behavioural treatments of articulation can either involve direct or indirect approaches. The latter have been thoroughly investigated and are generally appreciated for their almost immediate…

Collins, Ginger G.; Glaspey, Amy M. – Advances in Special Education, 2021
Dynamic assessment in the educational setting has been shown to offer many benefits for students with speech and language disorders. This chapter highlights the benefits of dynamic assessment and describes the limitations of static assessments. Because dynamic assessment can be implemented in many ways, three scenarios have been designed to…

Iuzzini-Seigel, Jenya – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: This case-control study sought to determine if (a) children with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), other speech sound disorders (SSDs), and typical development would perform differently on a procedural learning assessment and (b) whether grammatical ability would impact group differences. Method: Communication, motor, and procedural…

Borrie, Stephanie A.; Lansford, Kaitlin L.; Barrett, Tyson S. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: Perceptual training paradigms, which leverage the mechanism of perceptual learning, show that naïve listeners, those with no prior experience with dysarthria, benefit from explicit familiarization with a talker with dysarthria. It is theorized that familiarization affords listeners an opportunity to acquire distributional knowledge of the…

Levy, Erika S.; Chang, Younghwa M.; Hwang, KyungHae; McAuliffe, Megan J. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: Children with dysarthria secondary to cerebral palsy may experience reduced speech intelligibility and diminished communicative participation. However, minimal research has been conducted examining the outcomes of behavioral speech treatments in this population. This study examined the effect of Speech Intelligibility Treatment (SIT), a…

Schölderle, Theresa; Haas, Elisabet; Baumeister, Stefanie; Ziegler, Wolfram – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: This article describes the developmental trajectories of four communication-related parameters (i.e., intelligibility, articulation rate, fluency, and communicative efficiency) in a cross-sectional study of typically developing children between 3 and 9 years. The four target parameters were related to auditory-perceptual parameters of…

Moya-Galé, Gemma; Keller, Bryan; Escorial, Sergio; Levy, Erika S. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: This study examined the effects of Speech Intelligibility Treatment (SIT) on intelligibility and naturalness of narrative speech produced by francophone children with dysarthria due to cerebral palsy. Method: Ten francophone children with dysarthria were randomized to one of two treatments, SIT or Hand-Arm Bimanual Intensive Therapy…

Cleland, Joanne; Scobbie, James M. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: This study has two key aims--first, to provide developmental articulatory norms for the alveolar-velar distinction in 30 English-speaking typically developing (TD) children; second, to illustrate the utility of the reported measures for classifying and quantifying the speech of children with a history of persistent velar fronting as they…

Lehner, Katharina; Ziegler, Wolfram – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: The clinical assessment of intelligibility must be based on a large repository and extensive variation of test materials, to render test stimuli unpredictable and thereby avoid expectancies and familiarity effects in the listeners. At the same time, it is essential that test materials are systematically controlled for factors influencing…

Borrie, Stephanie A.; Lansford, Kaitlin L. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: Early studies of perceptual learning of dysarthric speech, those summarized in Borrie, McAuliffe, and Liss (2012), yielded preliminary evidence that listeners could learn to better understand the speech of a person with dysarthria, revealing a potentially promising avenue for future intelligibility interventions. Since then, a…

Nip, Ignatius S. B.; Garellek, Marc – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: Many children with cerebral palsy (CP) are described as having altered vocal quality. The current study utilizes psychoacoustic measures, namely, low-amplitude (H1*-H2*) and high-amplitude (H1*-A2*) spectral tilt and cepstral peak prominence (CPP), to identify the vocal fold articulation characteristics in this population. Method: Eight…
