An investigation of the language produced by a child with physical disabilities while directing a partnered math activity with and without the use of a Lego robot
Robertson, Kate, Commandeur, Danielle
Previous research at the Assistive Technology Lab at the University of Alberta has found that the use of robots can facilitate participation for children with disabilities in performing mathematics activities. The focus of the current study was to describe the language used by a child with...
Baugh, Lauren, Laughton, Sara, McKnight, Cassandra, Walker, Rebecca, Paslawski, Teresa
Interactions with animals have long been shown to improve human health through improved mood, increased physical activity, and decreased anxiety and social isolation (Fine, 2015). These effects have been harnessed in healthcare through therapeutic approaches such as animal-assisted therapy (AAT)....

Anticipation during language processing: Investigating the use of sentence context during reading in young adultsDownload
Johns, Alison, Wilson, Kristy, Kim, Esther, Cummine, Jacqueline
The N400 is an event-related potential (ERP) component that has been suggested to be associated with the processing of semantic information. Specifically, researchers have found that the N400 effect is prominent when words are incongruent in a given sentence context. Furthermore, the size of the...
Are objective measures of room acoustics related to older adults’ subjective perceptions of acoustical comfort in eating establishments (EEs)?
Hodgetts, William, Khu, Vanessa, Therriault, Nicole
The domains of acoustic accessibility and comfort play an important role in the overall accessibility of public spaces, particularly for the elderly population and those with hearing loss. Previous research has examined the relationship between objective measures of room acoustic properties...
Assessing language at kindergarten age and predicting ongoing risk: Perspectives of clinicians and an update on the evidence
Sanders, Kaitlin, Borger, Paige, Charest, Monique, Schneider, Phyllis, McFarlane, Lu-Anne, Yip, Beatrice
BACKGROUND INFORMATION There is compelling evidence that, for the majority of children with specific language impairment (SLI), language difficulties are longstanding. Other research, however, has reported that a high proportion of affected preschool-age children recover by about kindergarten...
Behavioural Assessment of Language Processing using the Dual Route Model and Independence Equations
Behavioural Assessment of Language Processing using the Dual Route Model and Independence EquationsDownload
Miller, Amanda, Spence, Stacy, Halliwell, Nicole
The independence equations employed by Castles et al. (2006) and McDougall et al. (2005), have been used to provide evidence for a dual route model of reading. However, such reports have been limited to basic naming tasks. To test the robustness of previous claims, we examined the utility of...
Beyond Sentences: Profiling Language and Communication in School-Aged Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)Download
Engel, Kathleen, Dodd, Erin, Volden, Joanne
Purpose: This study explored whether the Expression, Reception and Recall of Narrative Instrument (ERRNI) could profile language abilities in children with ASD beyond the sentence level. We hypothesized the ERRNI would identify significant communication impairments in children with ASD above...
