Le, Ha N. D.; Le, Long K. D.; Nguyen, Phuong K.; Mudiyanselage, Shalika B.; Eadie, Patricia; Mensah, Fiona; Sciberras, Emma; Gold, Lisa – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2020
Background: Low language (LL) is a common childhood condition affecting 7-17% of children. It is associated with life-long adverse outcomes and can affect various aspects of a child's life. However, the literature on its impact on health-related quality of life (HRQoL), service use and costs are limited. To date, there has been no systematic…

Sherratt, Sue; Bryan, Karen – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Knowledge of the discourse performance of non-brain-damaged individuals is critical not only for its differentiation from disordered expression but also for more accurate models of ageing and communication. The effect of ageing and cognitive skills on the cohesive adequacy of discourse has, until now, presented a confusing and…

Smith, Jodie; Levickis, Penny; Eadie, Tricia; Bretherton, Lesley; Conway, Laura; Goldfeld, Sharon – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Variations in parenting, more specifically less responsive and more directive parenting, contribute to language difficulties for children experiencing adversity. Further investigation of associations between specific responsive and directive behaviours and child language is required to understand how behaviours shape language over time…

Sønsterud, Hilda; Kirmess, Melanie; Howells, Kirsten; Ward, David; Feragen, Kristin Billaud; Halvorsen, Margrethe Seeger – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Multiple factors can influence the working alliance and treatment outcome in speech and language therapy. The 'working alliance' is an important concept in treatment and can be described as the degree to which a treatment dyad is engaged in collaborative, purposive work. To date, relatively little attention has been paid to this…

Boyce, Jessica O.; Sanchez, Katherine; Amor, David J.; Reilly, Sheena; Da Costa, Annette; Kilpatrick, Nicky; Morgan, Angela T. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Submucous cleft palate (SMCP) has a heterogeneous presentation and is often identified late or misdiagnosed. Diagnosis is prompted by speech, resonance or feeding symptoms associated with velopharyngeal insufficiency. However, the broader impacts of SMCP on communication have rarely been examined and therefore are poorly understood.…

Black, Rebecca J.; Bogaardt, Hans; McCabe, Patricia; Glanville, Allan R.; MacDonald, Peter; Madill, Catherine – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Oropharyngeal dysphagia and laryngeal dysfunction are two lesser known complications after lung and heart transplantation. The presence of these features places this immunocompromised population at high risk of pulmonary complications and subsequent medical deterioration. Early identification of swallowing and voice dysfunction would…

Bailey, Dallin J.; Bunker, Lisa; Mauszycki, Shannon; Wambaugh, Julie L. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Acquired apraxia of speech (AOS) involves speech-production deficits on both the segmental and suprasegmental levels. Recent research has identified a non-linear interaction between the metrical structure of bisyllabic words and word-production accuracy in German speakers with AOS, with trochaic words (strong-weak stress) being…

Gunn, Anthony; Menzies, Ross G.; Onslow, Mark; O'Brian, Sue; Packman, Ann; Lowe, Robyn; Helgadóttir, Fjóla Dögg; Jones, Mark – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: iGlebe is a fully automated internet treatment program for adults who stutter that has been shown, in some cases, to reduce anxiety and effectively manage social anxiety disorder for many participants. No such automated internet treatment program exists for adolescents who stutter. Aims: The present paper reports a Phase I trial of an…

Turkington, Leisa; Ward, Elizabeth C.; Farrell, Anna; Porter, Linda; Wall, Laurelie R. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: The need for effective compensatory strategies in neurogenic dysphagia management has led to the exploration of sensory enhancement strategies (SES), such as carbonated liquids. Despite some positive findings, evidence related to the efficacy of carbonation as an SES is limited. Aims: To determine if carbonated thin liquids reduced…

Pistono, Aurélie; Jucla, M.; Bézy, C.; Lemesle, B.; Le Men, J.; Pariente, J. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Alzheimer's disease is characterized by macrolinguistic changes. This decline is often analyzed with quantitative scales. Aims: To analyze discourse production in early Alzheimer's disease (AD) and to identify qualitative markers of macrolinguistic decline. Methods & Procedures: We analyzed macrolinguistic features of a clinical…

Hopkins, Thomas; Clegg, Judy; Stackhouse, Joy – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: A high prevalence of Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) is reported in the population of Young Offenders (YO). However, little is known about the extent of the association between language and offending behaviour relative to social disadvantage, education attendance and non-verbal intelligence (IQ), and neither has this association…

Välimaa, Taina; Kunnari, Sari; Laukkanen-Nevala, Päivi; Lonka, Eila – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Children with unilateral cochlear implants (CIs) may have delayed vocabulary development for an extended period after implantation. Bilateral cochlear implantation is reported to be associated with improved sound localization and enhanced speech perception in noise. This study proposed that bilateral implantation might also promote…

Sjögreen, Lotta; Mårtensson, Åsa; Ekström, Anne-Berit – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) is a slowly progressive multi-systemic disease with an autosomal-dominant inheritance caused by a mutation on chromosome 19 (19q13.3). Aims: To explore speech characteristics in a group of individuals with the congenital and childhood-onset forms of DM1 in terms of intelligibility, speech-sound…

Miles, Anna; McFarlane, Mary; Scott, Samantha; Hunting, Alexandra – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: The modifications of fluid viscosity and/or volume are common strategies in dysphagia management, with increased viscosity or reduced volume intended to reduce aspiration. Little attention has been given to whether cough response to aspiration varies across different viscosities and volumes. Aims: This prospective observational study…

Tuller, Laurice; Hamann, Cornelia; Chilla, Solveig; Ferré, Sandrine; Morin, Eléonore; Prevost, Philippe; dos Santos, Christophe; Abed Ibrahim, Lina; Zebib, Racha – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: The detection of specific language impairment (SLI) in children growing up bilingually presents particular challenges for clinicians. Non-word repetition (NWR) and sentence repetition (SR) tasks have proven to be the most accurate diagnostic tools for monolingual populations, raising the question of the extent of their usefulness in…
