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:...
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...
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,...
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...
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...
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...
Learning Therapist's Intervention from Demonstration: Application for Robotic Assistance to Children with Cerebral PalsyDownload
Physical interaction with the environment and object manipulation play an important role in the development of children's cognitive and perceptual skills. For children who have severe physical impairments, one of the biggest concerns is the loss of opportunities for play. Robots can be used to...
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...
Effects of an Intensive Voice Treatment on Articulatory Function and Speech Intelligibility in Children with Motor Speech DisordersDownload
Producing speech that is clear, audible, and intelligible to others is a challenge for many children with cerebral palsy (CP) and children with Down syndrome (DS). Previous studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of using the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT LOUD®) to increase vocal...
