Respiratory, laryngeal, and articulatory adjustments to changes in vocal loudness in typically developing children and children with spastic-type cerebral palsyDownload
This study explored the physiological adjustments made by the speech mechanism when sustained maximum phonations and sentences differing in vocal loudness were produced by typically developing children and children with cerebral palsy (CP). Respiratory adjustments (lung volume initiation,...
Purpose: To examine the suitability of a direct observation method to quantify and describe sedentary behavior and non-sedentary breaks for children who have cerebral palsy (Gross Motor Function Classification System [GMFCS] levels III, IV, and V). Secondary goals were to evaluate the agreement...
Bilateral Uterine Artery Ligation in Rats cultivates Long Term Neurological Deficits reminiscent of Human Cerebral Palsy: A model for Therapeutic Intervention.Download
Introduction Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a ubiquitous term used to describe a group of permanent, non-progressive disorders of movement, posture, and behaviour. Despite countless advances in neonatal medicine, the incidence of CP has remained constant in term infants over the last three decades. More...
Sleep is an active process, essential for physical, emotional and cognitive development of children. Between 23-46% of children with cerebral palsy (CP) have sleep problems. Often sleep problems go undiagnosed and undertreated in spite of the serious impact of sleep deficiency on...
Breathing Dynamics for Non-speech and Speech Tasks Following Intensive Voice and Speech Treatment in Children with Motor Speech Disorders Secondary to Cerebral PalsyDownload
Introduction. Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most frequently occurring cause of movement disorders in children. It has a prevalence of 2-2.5 cases per 1000 live births and is a chronic condition, requiring lifelong rehabilitation. The ability to communicate is a primary factor in positive...
Voice and Speech Outcomes Following Intensive Voice and Motor Speech Treatment Delivered Sequentially to Children with Motor Speech Disorders Secondary to Cerebral PalsyDownload
Purpose: The purpose of this retrospective study was to examine the treatment outcomes in children with a mixed diagnoses of dysarthria and childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), secondary to Cerebral Palsy (CP) after the completion of LSVT®LOUD followed by a six-week motor speech treatment. Method:...
Cerebral Palsy (CP) constitutes the primary outcome of premature nerve injury. Impairment of oxygen and glucose supply during pregnancy to the fetus can induce neuron damage and death. Mental retardation, seizures, learning disabilities, and other mental diseases can occur as a result of this...
Investigating the Role of In Utero Inflammation on Neurodevelopment in the Fetus and Offspring and the Neuroprotective Properties Afforded by Broccoli SproutsDownload
Introduction Maternal infection and inflammation leading to a fetal inflammatory response (FIR) is a risk factor for perinatal brain damage. Perinatal brain injury can lead to neurodevelopmental disorders, the sine quo non outcome parameter of which is cerebral palsy (CP). Despite advances in...
Hypoxic-ischemic brain damage (HIBD) is still of major concern in the neonatal period, resulting in chronic neurological sequelae stemming from damage to the term newborn brain. Full-body and focal-head cooling within 6 hours of birth have proven neuroprotective in human newborns and various...
This thesis discusses the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying neuromotor impairments in people with spastic cerebral palsy (CP). Ninety percent of people with CP have spastic CP and 60% have bilateral motor impairments. The first two chapters introduce CP and review the mechanisms known to...
