The Effects of Intensive Expiratory Muscle Strength Training (EMST) on Respiratory and Speech Function in Adults with Cerebral Palsy: A Case StudyDownload
Expiratory Muscle Strength Training (EMST), or exhaling against high resistance at the airway opening, is a procedure that requires high chest wall muscular effort. High expiratory effort practiced over time is thought to strengthen the neural control of these chest wall muscles as measured by...
Purpose: This study examined the effects of the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT®LOUD) on the speech intelligibility of children with cerebral palsy (CP) and children with Down syndrome (DS). Method: Naïve listeners were recruited to decode the pre- and post-treatment recorded single-word...
