Is There a Relationship Between Speech and Nonspeech Auditory Processing in Children With Dyslexia?
- A New Perspective on Developmental Language Problems: Perceptual Organization Deficits. Nittrouer, Susan // Perspectives on Language Learning & Education;Aug2012, Vol. 19 Issue 3, p87
Children with a variety of language-related problems, including dyslexia, experience difficulty processing the acoustic speech signal, leading to proposals of diagnostic entities known as auditory processing deficits. Although descriptions of these deficits vary across accounts, most hinge on...
- In Search of the Auditory, Phonetic, and/or Phonological Problems in Dyslexia: Context Effects in Speech Perception. Blomert, Leo; Mitterer, Holger; Paffen, Christiaan // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Oct2004, Vol. 47 Issue 5, p1030
There is a growing consensus that developmental dyslexia is associated with a phonological-core deficit. One symptom of this phonological deficit is a subtle speech-perception deficit. The auditory basis of this deficit is still hotly debated. people with dyslexia, however, do not have an...
- Fast words speed past dyslexics. Holmes, Bob // New Scientist;8/27/94, Vol. 143 Issue 1940, p10
Reports on Massachusetts researchers' findings about dyslexia. Impairment of rapid sound recognition in dyslexic people's brains; Role of sound recognition in speech development and phonetic reading; Size of cells in dyslexic brains' medial geniculate nucleus (MGN); Problems of dyslexic children...
- Auditory Temporal Processing and Lexical/Nonlexical Reading in Developmental Dyslexics. Cestnick, Laurie; Jerger, James // Journal of the American Academy of Audiology;Oct2000, Vol. 11 Issue 9
Relationships between lexical/nonlexical reading and auditory temporal processing were examined. Poor nonlexical readers (poor nonword readers, phonologic dyslexics) had difficulty across tone tasks irrespective of speed of presentation or mode of recall. Poor lexical readers (poor irregular...
- Administration and Socioeconmic Level Effects on Authority Discrimination of Elementary School Children. Kerr, Andrew S.; Meunier, Clement P. // Journal of Learning Disabilities;Dec1981, Vol. 14 Issue 10
Reports on the administration of a 40-item speech sound discrimination test to children to assess the effects of socioeconomic level and administrative mode, oral or tape, on auditory discrimination ability. Use of the Wepman Auditory Discrimination Test to assess speech-sound discrimination...
- Recognition of multiply degraded speech by young and elderly listeners. Gordon-Salant, Sandra; Fitzgibbons, Peter J. // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Oct95, Vol. 38 Issue 5, p1150
Investigates the hypothesis that age effects exert an increased influence on speech recognition performance as the number of acoustic degradations of the speech signal increases. Age-related decline in understanding degraded speech; Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR); Multiply degraded speech.
- ELECTROPALATOGRAPHIC AND SPECTROGRAPHIC DESCRIPTIONS OF ALLOPHONIC VARIANTS OF /l/. Lehman, Mark E.; Swartz, Bradford // Perceptual & Motor Skills;Feb2000, Vol. 90 Issue 1, p47
Investigates prevocalic and postvocalic /l/ in three adult subjects utilizing a combination of electropalatographic and acoustic techniques. Characteristics of prevocalic /l/; Use of models that relate physiological and acoustical aspects of speech to account for observed results.
- Examining the role of auditory sensitivity in the... Nittrouer, Susan; Crowther, Court S. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Aug1998, Vol. 41 Issue 4, p809
Presents information on the study which examines the role of auditory sensitivity in the developmental weighting shift for speech. Materials and methods; Experimental procedures; Discussion on the results.
- Respiratory Sinus Arrhythmia During Speech Production. Reilly, Kevin J.; Moore, Christopher A. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Feb2003, Vol. 46 Issue 1, p164
The amplitude of the respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) was investigated during a reading aloud task to determine whether alterations in respiratory control during speech production affect the amplitude of RSA. Changes in RSA amplitude associated with speech were evaluated by comparing RSA...
