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...
