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:...
The Effects of a Child-Controlled Robot on Maternal Conversational Dominance During Play: A Case StudyDownload
Previous research has indicated parents of children with cerebral palsy and other complex communication difficulties exhibit high levels of control during communication exchanges. The current study investigated differences in maternal communication with a child with complex communication deficits...
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...
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,...
This study described the expressive language characteristics of 12 children with dysarthria and cerebral palsy based on analysis of 50-utterance spontaneous speech samples. Children were between four and 12 years old and had receptive and expressive language ages of at least three years. ...
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...
Measures of speech sound accuracy (e.g., percent consonants correct or PCC) and direct measures of intelligibility (e.g., percent words identified correctly) are used to determine the severity of a child’s speech disorder. However, the relationship between these measures has not been reported...
