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...
Can young children with severe disabilities learn to use a robot to accomplish tasks? Can they learn that they have some control over their environment? What are new developments in robotics that might benefit these very young children? This article provides the latest in robotics-- exciting news...
As they enter the workforce, new university graduates are expected to be equipped with a wide variety of skills and attributes viewed as essential for success in the workplace. Many of these skills and attributes are also important for the success of new graduates of rehabilitation medicine...
There are currently no studies that examine the types of phonemic awareness errors children are making on tests of phonemic awareness. This study aimed to: (a) develop a taxonomy to categorize the different types of errors made on a test of phoneme segmentation by grade one children, (b)...
Robots with adapted controllers have been used to assess cognitive skills of children with motor impairments who are sometimes difficult to assess with standardized tests that rely on verbal or motor responses. This paper describes the development of a virtual robot and a virtual scenario that...
Previous studies have demonstrated that Lego robots can be used to enable children with motor impairments to actively participate in play and academic activities. Additionally, by appropriately designing the activities and observing children’s performance, it is possible to assess children’s...
Videoconferencing vs. Face-To-Face: A Comparison of Results from Two Articulation Testing Conditions
Videoconferencing vs. Face-To-Face: A Comparison of Results from Two Articulation Testing ConditionsDownload
The use of videoconferencing to provide speech-language services has been promoted by such agencies as Alberta Health Services. It allows previously un-serviced, rural areas to access direct speech services from a speech-language pathologist (SLP), while also reducing the costs associated with...
Using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) Model to Gain Insight into the Impact of Cochlear Implants on Prelingually Deafened RecipientsDownload
A number of factors influence the quality of life of deaf individuals following cochlear implantation. In this study, we adapted the ICF model to create a survey to specifically fit Cochlear Implant (CI) users. This enabled us to make a novel comparison and correlation among multiple factors and...
This project focused on knowledge-translation through the development of educational tools to support parents in using apps in ways that encourage interaction and language use. Best practice principles related to early language learning were used to guide the development of resources. The goal of...
A Speech Generating Device (SGD) was used by a 12 year old student to participate in a Lego robot programming activity as part of a school curriculum. The infrared capability and mouse emulation capabilities of the SGD were customized to allow the participant to send commands to a car-like robot...
