Purpose. The present study focused on modulating features of speech motor control using transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). Recent studies have shown that tDCS modulates cortical activity within the brain, leading to changes in both cognitive and motor performance. More specific to...
Emergence and Refinement of Respiratory Chest Wall Intermuscular Coherence Associated with Speech and Non-Speech Tasks in Younger and Older ChildrenDownload
Introduction: There is limited information about the development of chest wall muscular control of lung volume and alveolar pressure for non-speech and speech tasks. The present study was the first in a series of studies aimed at achieving an in-depth understanding of intermuscular coherence of...

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:...
Breathing Dynamics for Non-speech and Speech Tasks Following Intensive Voice and Speech Treatment in Children with Motor Speech Disorders Secondary to Cerebral PalsyDownload
Introduction. Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most frequently occurring cause of movement disorders in children. It has a prevalence of 2-2.5 cases per 1000 live births and is a chronic condition, requiring lifelong rehabilitation. The ability to communicate is a primary factor in positive...
