- SPEECH DIFFICULTIES AND POOR SPEECH INTELLIGIBILITY IN ADULTS WITH DOWN SYNDROME: A REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE. Coppens-Hofman, Marjolein C.; Maassen, Ben A. M.; van Schrojenstein Lantman-de VaLk, Henny M. J.; Snik, Ad F. M. // Journal of Hearing Science;Mar2012, Vol. 2 Issue 1, p9
Background: This review gives an overview of studies on speech difficulties in adults with Down syndrome to identify causes and major determinants of poor speech intelligibility for this group and to suggest areas requiring further research. Material and Methods: Exactly 39 published articles...
- PREVALENCE OF SPEECH DISORDERS IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS IN JORDAN. AL-JAZI, AYA BASSAM; AL-KHAMRA, RANA // Education;Winter2015, Vol. 136 Issue 2, p159
Goal: The aim of this study was to find the prevalence of speech (articulation, voice, and fluency) disorders among elementary school students from first grade to fourth grade. This research was based on the screening implemented as part of the Madrasati Project, which is designed to serve the...
- Melodic intonation therapy: back to basics for future research. Zumbansen, Anna; Peretz, Isabelle; Hébert, Sylvie // Frontiers in Neurology;Jan2014, Vol. 4, p1
We present a critical review of the literature on melodic intonation therapy (MIT), one of the most formalized treatments used by speech-language therapist in Broca's aphasia. We suggest basic clarifications to enhance the scientific support of this promising treatment. First, therapeutic...
- Time-interval analysis of interjudge and intrajudge agreement for stuttering event judgments. Cordes, Anne K.; Ingham,, Roger J.; Frank, Peter; Ingham, Janis Costello // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Jun92, Vol. 35 Issue 3, p483
Investigates a measurement methodology based on time-interval analyses of stuttering event judgments. Three groups of judges, differing in stuttering judgment experience, identified stuttering events in 12 repeated presentations of five one-minute speech samples. A time-interval methodology...
- Modifying electroglottograph-identified intervals of phonation: The effect on stuttering. Gow, Merrilyn L.; Ingham, Roger J. // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Jun92, Vol. 35 Issue 3, p495
Presents a study in which single-subject experiments were conducted with an adolescent and an adult male who stutter to assess the effect on stuttering of changing the frequency of phonation intervals that were within prescribed duration ranges during spontaneous speech. Method; Procedure;...
- Stuttering and speech naturalness: Audio and audiovisual judgments. Martin, Richard R.; Haroldson, Samuel K. // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Jun92, Vol. 35 Issue 3, p521
Presents a study in which unsophisticated raters, using nine-point interval scales, judged speech naturalness and stuttering severity of recorded stutterer and nonstutterer speech samples. Raters judged separately the audio-only and audiovisual presentations of each sample. Method; Results;...
- The effects of noise masking and required accuracy on speech errors, disfluencies, and self-repairs. Postma, Albert; Kolk, Herman // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Jun92, Vol. 35 Issue 3, p537
Examines effects of noise masking and accuracy emphasis on speech error, disfluency, and self-repair rates, in order to test the covert repair hypothesis. Design and procedure; Method; Equipment; Results; Discussion.
- Converging evidence for underlying phonological representation in a child who misarticulates. McGregor, Karla K.; Schwartz, Richard G. // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Jun92, Vol. 35 Issue 3, p596
Presents converging analyses of the liquid, fricative, and affricate sounds in the phonological system of a single misarticulating child. Method; Results; Discussion.
- The access and processing of familiar idioms by brain-damaged and normally aging adults. Tompkins, Connie A.; Boada, Richard; McGarry, Kathrine // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Jun92, Vol. 35 Issue 3, p626
Presents a study that uses an on-line word-monitoring task to assess RHD, left-hemisphere-damaged, and normally aging adults' implicit knowledge of familiar idiomatic expressions. Method; Results; Discussion.
