Technology use in assessment and intervention in speech-language pathology is an area of rapid growth. Decisions about what type of device to use should be evidence based and take into account best practice principles (BPPs) within speech-language pathology. This study explored the benefits and...
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...
Background: This study describes the intensity of services received by preschool children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in the Edmonton area. Method: Sixty eight families were asked to describe the services their preschool children utilized at 4 time points: within 4 months of diagnosis,...
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...
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...
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...
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. ...
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...
Background. Children who stutter are teased and bullied. Langevin (1999) developed the Teasing and Bullying: Unacceptable Behaviour (TAB) program for use in schools. The TAB program includes a videotape that discusses teasing and bullying and provides information that educates students about...
