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…

Eadie, Patricia; Conway, Laura; Hallenstein, Birgit; Mensah, Fiona; McKean, Cristina; Reilly, Sheena – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Developmental language disorder (DLD) is common in children, but little is known about its association with quality of life (QoL) in middle childhood. QoL is a complex construct, aligning with an individual's sense of well-being and is related to functional limitations associated with DLD. Biopsychosocial models of disability account…

Mason, Kazlin N.; Pua, Eshan; Perry, Jamie L. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Posterior nasal fricatives are a learned compensatory articulation error and commonly substituted for oral fricatives. Treatment of such articulation errors requires the modification or teaching of skilled movements. A motor-based approach is designed to teach the complex motor skill movement sequences required in the production of…

Faroqi-Shah, Yasmeen; Milman, Lisa – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: The ability to generate words that follow certain constraints, or verbal fluency, is a sensitive indicator of neurocognitive impairment, and is impacted by a variety of variables. Aims: To investigate the effect of post-stroke aphasia, elicitation category and linguistic variables on verbal fluency performance. Methods &…

Rhoad-Drogalis, Anna; Justice, Laura M.; Sawyer, Brook E.; O'Connell, Ann A. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Children with developmental language disorders (DLDs) often struggle with classroom behaviour. No study has examined whether positive teacher-child relationships may act as a protective factor for children with DLDs in that these serve to enhance children's important classroom-learning behaviours. Aims: To examine the association…

Conway, Laura J.; Levickis, Penny A.; Smith, Jodie; Mensah, Fiona; Wake, Melissa; Reilly, Sheena – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Identifying risk and protective factors for language development informs interventions for children with developmental language disorder (DLD). Maternal responsive and intrusive communicative behaviours are associated with language development. Mother-child interaction quality may influence how children use these behaviours in language…

Conti-Ramsden, Gina; Durkin, Kevin; Toseeb, Umar; Botting, Nicola; Pickles, Andrew – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Developmental language disorder (DLD) presents a considerable barrier for young adults to engage in further education and training. Early studies with young adults with DLD revealed poor educational achievement and lack of opportunities to progress in education. More recent studies have provided more positive findings. Relatively…

Eadie, Tanya; Kapsner-Smith, Mara; Bolt, Susan; Sauder, Cara; Yorkston, Kathryn; Baylor, Carolyn – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Beyond the severity of voice, speech and language impairments, one potential predictor of communication success across adult populations with communication disorders may be perceived social support: the expectation that others will provide support if needed. Despite the preponderance of intervention approaches that assume a positive…

Bose, Arpita; Wood, Rosalind; Kiran, Swathi – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: Verbal fluency tasks are included in a broad range of aphasia assessments. It is well documented that people with aphasia (PWA) produce fewer items in these tasks. Successful performance on verbal fluency relies on the integrity of both linguistic and executive control abilities. It remains unclear if limited output in aphasia is…

Ito, Kiwako; Martens, Marilee A. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: Past reports on the speech production of individuals with Williams syndrome (WS) suggest that their prosody is anomalous and may lead to challenges in spoken communication. While existing prosodic assessments confirm that individuals with WS fail to use prosodic emphasis to express contrast, those reports typically lack detailed…

Hrastelj, Laura; Knight, Rachael-Anne – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: A pattern of ingressive substitutions for word-final sibilants can be identified in a small number of cases in child speech disorder, with growing evidence suggesting it is a phonological difficulty, despite the unusual surface form. Phonological difficulty implies a problem with the cognitive process of organizing speech into sound…

Bishop, Dorothy V. M. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
A recent project entitled CATALISE used the Delphi method to reach a consensus on terminology for unexplained language problems in children. "Developmental language disorder" (DLD) was the term agreed by a panel of 57 experts. Here I reflect on points of difficulty that arose when attempting to reach a consensus, using qualitative…

Dacakis, Georgia; Oates, Jennifer; Douglas, Jacinta – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: The Transsexual Voice Questionnaire (TVQ[Superscript MtF]) was designed to capture the voice-related perceptions of individuals whose gender identity as female is the opposite of their birth-assigned gender (MtF women). Evaluation of the psychometric properties of the TVQ[Superscript MtF]is ongoing. Aims: To investigate associations…

Manwaring, Stacy S.; Mead, Danielle L.; Swineford, Lauren; Thurm, Audrey – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: Nonverbal communication abilities, including gesture use, are impaired in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, little is known about how common gestures may influence or be influenced by other areas of development. Aims: To examine the relationships between gesture, fine motor and language in young children with ASD compared with a…
