Effect of a Child-Controlled Robot on Mother’s Communicative Dominance during Play Interaction with a Child with Cerebral Palsy: a Case StudyDownload
Children who have severe physical disabilities often have great difficulty interacting and learning through play, and their expressive language is commonly limited. During play, mothers are frequently more directive in their interaction with children with disabilities. This might change if the...
Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are said to interpret language literally. If so, they would have trouble understanding figurative language, independent of their language level. Idioms (e.g. “skating on thin ice”) are a type of figurative language that are used frequently. In this...
The Effects of LSVT®LOUD (Lee Silverman Voice Treatment) on the Speech Intelligibility of Children with Spastic Cerebral Palsy and Children with Down Syndrome
The Effects of LSVT®LOUD (Lee Silverman Voice Treatment) on the Speech Intelligibility of Children with Spastic Cerebral Palsy and Children with Down SyndromeDownload
The purpose of this study was to develop a pilot listening task designed to examine pre- and post-treatment intelligibility ratings, as well as error patterns, following intensive voice treatment (LSVT®LOUD), in a group of children with Cerebral Palsy (CP) and another group of children with Down...
Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) proves to have great potential for investigating the white matter network of the brain. The ability to study these pathways may offer important insight into the neurological differences of people with communication disorders. However, due to the high level of...
This is a resource for parents of children with physical limitations. Typically developing children learn and develop their cognitive, language, social, and motor skills by interacting with their environment. For example, playing with toys and physically manipulating objects help children learn...
Many children have difficulty producing /r/ sounds. In this study we are interested in children’s production of vocalic forms of /r/, otherwise known as rhotic vowels. Rhotic vowels can be monophthongs (/ɝ/and/ɚ/), as in words like stir and tiger, or diphthongs (e.g., /ɑ͡ɚ/ or /ɪ͡ɚ/), as in car...
Exploring Pragmatic Language Dysfunction in High Functioning Speakers with Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Reliability Study for Transcription using Systematic Analysis of Language Transcripts (SALT)Download
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) commonly experience difficulties with pragmatic language use. To determine how cognitive load affects the pragmatic language use of high-functioning children with ASD, 11 children between the ages of 7 and 12 and diagnosed with ASD performed...
The Development of Idiom Comprehension in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
This project is concerned with the development of idiom comprehension in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The performance of four children between the ages of 6 and 13 years, with High Functioning Autism (HFA), was compared on different idiom interpretation tasks. The three idiom...
Sleep and children with cerebral palsy: A review of current evidence and environmental non-pharmacological interventionsDownload
Between 23%–46% of children with cerebral palsy experience sleep problems. Many of the sensory-motor and cognitive features of cerebral palsy (such as immobility, pain, and seizures) act as predisposing factors for sleep problems in this population. This paper presents the background related to...
