O'Neill, Michelle; Duffy, Orla; Henderson, Mo; Davis, Ashleigh; Kernohan, W George – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2023
Background: Eating, drinking and swallowing (EDS) difficulties are important to identify early. Awareness of EDS changes starts with those living with dementia or their family carers. However, little is known about early identification from the perspective of people with dementia. Aim: The aim of this study was to understand the experience of EDS…

O'Leary, Lisa; Maine, Andrew; Ring, Nicola; Reid, James; Speirs, Lorraine; Allan, Louise; Truesdale, Maria; Taggart, Laurence – Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities, 2023
Background: Dysphagia can have serious health implications including choking and respiratory infection leading to poorer quality of life. People with intellectual disabilities are at higher risk of dysphagia related health complications and early death. Robust dysphagia screening tools are vital for this population. Method: A scoping review and…

Marie Martel; Livio Finos; Salam Bahmad; Eric Koun; Romeo Salemme; Sandrine Sonié; Pierre Fourneret; Christina Schmitz; Alice Catherine Roy – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2024
Autism spectrum disorders and developmental coordination disorders are both associated with sensorimotor impairments, yet their nature and specificity remain unknown. In order to clearly distinguish the specificity between the two disorders, children with autism spectrum disorder or developmental coordination disorder presenting the same degree of…

Maryn, Youri; Zarowski, Andrzej; Loomans, Natalie – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: To better understand hypernasality (HN), we explored the relations between velopharyngeal orifice, auditory perception of HN, and acoustic-spectral measures in an in vivo within-subject design: (1) with a normally functioning velum as the control condition; and (2) with a temporarily paralyzed velum as the experimental condition. Method:…

Garand, Kendrea L.; Bhutada, Ankita M.; Hopkins-Rossabi, Theresa; Mulekar, Madhuri S.; Carnaby, Giselle – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2022
Purpose: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) impacts bulbar and respiratory musculature, which may contribute to impaired swallow function (dysphagia) and respiratory-swallow coordination. The purpose of this pilot study was to examine if respiratory-swallow coordination in individuals with ALS was perturbed compared to healthy controls. We…

Sella-Weiss, Oshrat – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2022
Background: Texture-modified foods (TMF) is a common intervention for improving swallowing safety and efficiency for people with dysphagia. Non-standardized texture classification (NSTC) of foods is used worldwide. However, as this study documents, it can introduce a lack of clarity and confusion over definitions that can potentially harm…

Domka, Margaret; Arthur-Banning, Skye G.; Windbiel, Kirsten; Oh, Young Suk – Schole: A Journal of Leisure Studies and Recreation Education, 2023
In transitioning a 3-day in-person soccer camp for veterans with disabilities to a virtual format due to the COVID-19 pandemic, one of our greatest concerns was that veterans would lose the opportunity to establish social connections, which had heightened importance to this population because of the social isolation brought on by restrictions on…

Badesha, Maneetpal; Thayanantha, Abiramy; Shune, Samantha; Namasivayam-MacDonald, Ashwini – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2023
Background: Previous research has demonstrated that many caregivers of care recipients with communication and swallowing impairments suffer from caregiver burden. Existing research sheds light on the presence of burden and various predicting factors, but little information on interventions to reduce caregiver burden. Aims: To determine how…

Riya Chatterjee; Nicholas E. Fears; Gavin Lichtenberg; Priscila M. Tamplain; Haylie L. Miller – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
Despite a growing awareness of the prevalence of motor differences in the autistic community, their functional impact is poorly understood. Social media offers the ideal setting to observe this discourse in a less-contrived setting than lab-based structured interviews. The aims of the present study were (a) to determine the proportion of Twitter…

Priscila M. Tamplain; Nicholas E. Fears; Promise Robinson; Riya Chatterjee; Gavin Lichtenberg; Haylie L. Miller – Journal of Motor Learning and Development, 2023
Little is known about adults' experiences with developmental coordination disorder (DCD; sometimes also referred to as dyspraxia). Social media is an accessible opportunity for those who identify as dyspraxic or as having DCD to provide valuable insight into the lifespan impact of this condition on functional ability, participation, compensatory…

Bertoldi, Rafaela; da Silva, Mônia Aparecida; Ribeiro Bandeira, Paulo Felipe; Bandeira, Denise Ruschel; Mazo, Janice Zarpellon – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2023
The aim of this study was to present the construction process of the Coping Inventory for Paralympic Athletes in Competition Situations (ICAP) and, as well, evidence of its content validity. The ICAP was developed to evaluate coping strategies in Paralympic athletes aged 18 years and older, possessing physical and/or visual impairment. The…

Pu, Dai; Yao, Theresa Jingyun – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2023
Background: Swallowing function can become impaired due to primary medical conditions or age-related presbyphagia, resulting in swallowing disorders, known as dysphagia. Specific manoeuvres that target different musculature have been innovated and researched, but whole-body exercises (WBE) that target multiple large groups of body systems and…

Top, Elif; Akil, Mustafa – JTRM in Kinesiology, 2021
To understand the factors that affect sports in physical disabilities, it is prominent to conduct studies, especially on people who are engaged in sports at certain levels. This research was a cross-sectional study aiming at determining motivation and perceived social support on male athletes with physical disabilities. A total of 666 male…

Georgia Allen; Bethany Milne; Philippa Velija; Rebecca Radley – Sport, Education and Society, 2024
The number of children educated within maintained Special Educational Needs (SEN) Schools, known as special schools, in England has continued to rise since 2006, yet the 'pupil voice' of children and young people with severe learning difficulties and those attending special schools remains limited in current research. Drawing on Gramsci's theory…
