Lane, Hannah; Harding, Sam; Wren, Yvonne – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2022
Background: Children with cleft palate with or without cleft lip (CP±L) are at high risk of problems with early speech sound production, and these difficulties can persist into later childhood. Early intervention could help to reduce the number of children whose problems become persistent. However, much research in the field to date has focused on…

Feng, Chun; Volkman, Kathleen; Wagoner, Cheryl; Siu, Ka-Chun – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2022
Background: Digital cervical auscultation (CA) has been proposed since the 1950s for screening aspiration among patients with dysphagia. Researchers have investigated the 'external' effects such as bolus viscosity, volume, and head and neck positions. However, the influences of standardized liquid viscosity and food texture on swallowing sounds…

Connery, Amy; Yaruss, J. Scott; Lomheim, Holly; Loucks, Torrey M.; Galvin, Rose; McCurtin, Arlene – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2022
Background: Evidence-based practice involves the synthesis of multiple forms of evidence to inform clinical decision-making and treatment evaluation. Practice- and patient-based evidence are two forms of evidence that are under-represented in the stuttering literature. The collection of such knowledge is essential to support the design and…

Background: Intelligibility and comprehensibility in speech disorders can be assessed both perceptually and instrumentally, but a lack of consensus exists regarding the terminology and related speech measures in both the clinical and scientific fields. Aims: To draw up a more consensual definition of intelligibility and comprehensibility and to…

Ahufinger, Nadia; Ferinu, Laura; Sanz-Torrent, Mònica; Andreu, Llorenç; Evans, Julia L. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2022
Background: A growing body of work shows that children with developmental language disorder (DLD) perform poorly on statistical word learning (SWL) tasks, consistent with the predictions of the Procedural Deficit Hypothesis that predicts that procedural memory is impaired in DLD. To date, however, SWL performance has not been compared across…

Sulek, Rhylee; Smith, Jodie; Bent, Catherine Anne; Hudry, Kristelle; Trembath, David; Vivanti, Giacomo; Dissanayake, Cheryl – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2022
Background: There is growing understanding of the potential benefits of a multi-method approach to accurately capture language skills of children on the autism spectrum. Tools such as Language ENvironment Analysis (LENA) provide an efficient means of capturing and analysing early child vocalizations (CVs) and the language learning environment.…

Minchell, Ellie; Rumbach, Anna; Finch, Emma – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2022
Dysphagia (impaired swallowing) is known to contribute to decreased quality of life, and increased length of hospital stay and mortality post-stroke. Despite the advancements in stroke treatment with the introduction of thrombolysis and endovascular clot retrieval (ECR), patients continue to present with high rates of dysphagia. Speech and…

Davis, Lydia; Botting, Nicola; Cruice, Madeline; Dipper, Lucy – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2022
Background: The communication skills of older adults living in care homes is an underexplored topic. Ageing can lead to reduced communication ability and activity; and in the care home environment there may also be fewer communication opportunities. This situation is likely to negatively impact well-being. Previous reviews have found evidence of…

Background: While implementation studies in aphasia management have shown promising improvements to clinical practice, it is currently unknown if aphasia implementation outcomes are sustained and what factors may influence clinical sustainability. Aims: To evaluate the sustainment (i.e., sustained improvement of aphasia management practices and…

Finnimore, Ann; Theodoros, Deborah; Rumbach, Anna F. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2022
Background: Debilitating speech and communication changes in Parkinson's disease (PD) lead to diminished quality of life for people with PD and their communication partners. Maintenance of the long-term effects of treatment such as LSVT LOUD® remains equivocal. Development of supported long-term maintenance programs is warranted. Aims: This…
