The use of a volitional airway protection technique by a patient with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and cognitive impairment
The use of a volitional airway protection technique by a patient with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and cognitive impairmentDownload
The purpose of this pilot study is to determine if an individual with ALS and frontotemporal lobar dementia can learn a volitional airway protection technique and, if so, does this treatment have a beneficial effect on respiration and swallowing?
Background: Pragmatic skills are, by definition, impaired in people with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). These difficulties can negatively influence a person’s interpersonal relationships, their ability to find employment and their overall quality of life. Currently, there is little research...
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. ...
Neurophysiological mechanisms of reading in alexia: Development of stimuli to examine semantic integration using the N400 responseDownload
In order for speech-language pathologists to improve therapy for acquired reading impairments, it is necessary to gain a better understanding of how sentences are processed during reading. Neural mechanisms underlying reading processes can be examined by using event-related potentials (ERPs)....
Storytelling tasks are commonly used to assess language in a functional context. However, the quality of children's stories can vary depending on how stories are elicited. Research (Pearce, 2003; Schneider & Dubé, 2005) has shown differences in children’s narratives when retelling stories from...
In Canada, the number of adults with pre-lingual hearing loss who receive a cochlear implant (CI) is growing; however, most of the adult CI centers in Canada reported that “the majority of their patients did not need rehabilitation services post-implant” (Fitzpatrick & Brewster, 2010, p. 293). ...
Language Development in School-age Children Adopted from Haiti: A Longitudinal Study
The language development of children adopted internationally is a topic of growing interest, however, most studies have investigated children adopted from China or Eastern Europe. This project is a follow-up study that explored the language development of school-age children who were adopted from...
Reliability of On-Line Scoring of Story Grammar Elements of the Edmonton Narrative Norms InstrumentDownload
This study aimed to determine the reliability of scoring the story grammar portion of the Edmonton Narrative Norms Instrument (ENNI; Schneider, Dubé, & Howard, 2005) directly from audio recordings. The authors hypothesized that if the stories could be scored for story grammar elements from audio...
Recent advancements in mobile technology and increased use of mobile devices are influencing service delivery in healthcare settings, including the field of speech-language pathology. Although limited research exists in this area, an increasing number of speech-language pathologists (SLPs) have...
Symptom Management in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: A Case Study
In this paper, a case study is used to discuss current concepts related to the evaluation and treatment of airway clearance and secretion management of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
