Infant Feeding Non-nutritive Sucking and Speech Development

Background In the UK every year around 48,000 children aged 2-5 years are referred to NHS Speech & Language Therapy (SLT) services with difficulties using the right sounds in their talking. This is known as speech sound disorders (SSD). This is the largest population seen by Speech and Language Therapists ...

Phase N/A

Rare Diseases Clinical Research Network: Neurophysiological Correlates

Individuals with RTT, MECP2 Dup and RTT-related disorders have significant abnormalities on a number of neurophysiological measures such as EEG and Evoked Potentials (EP). Studies in representative animal models reproduce many of these abnormalities. Little is known about the relationship between these neurophysiological findings to disease evolution, severity and specific ...

Phase N/A

Impact of the Pre-phonatory Inspiratory Volume on the Speech Quality of Neuromuscular Patients Dependent on Non-invasive Ventilation

Speech and communication quality depend on respiration efficiency. The respiratory involvement observed in neuromuscular disorders can impair speech quality in patients, while the underlying disease may also contribute to alter phonation. Nowadays, the first line treatment of neuromuscular chronic neuromuscular respiratory failure is noninvasive ventilation (NIV). With disease progression, it ...

Phase N/A

Speech Therapy in the Management of Chronic Cough

The efficacy of management of chronic cough in adults is limited. Speech and language intervention (speech therapy) is one of the few methods which seem to be useful in management of persistent chronic cough. This method has not been available for patients with cough in Poland so far. The aim ...

Phase N/A

The Neurobiology of Two Distinct Types of Progressive Apraxia of Speech

Apraxia of speech (AOS) is a motor speech disorder reflecting a problem with the programming and/or planning of speech. AOS is well recognized in the context of stroke where onset is acute and the condition improves or is stable and chronic. AOS that is insidious in onset and progresses over ...

Phase N/A

Characterization of Auditory Processing Involved in the Encoding of Speech Sounds

The ability to encode the speech signal is determined by ascending and descending auditory processing. Difficulties in processing these speech signals are well described at the behavioral level in a specific language disorder. However, little is known about the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms. The assumption is that we should observe a ...

Phase N/A

Testing a Novel Speech Intervention in Minimally Verbal Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

The ability to communicate verbally is considered the most important prognostic indicator for children with ASD. If a child has not developed speech by age 5, it is generally considered unlikely that he or she will do so. Although a small number of cases of speech development in older children ...

Phase

Memorisation of Phonologic Information Among Children With Oral Language Developement Disorder

The disorder of oral language development is defined by the delay in language acquisition in children who possess efficient auditory acuity and normal non verbal intellect. The diversity of language developement disorders depends either in the expressive level or in the receptive level leading to divers syndromes and symptoms. These ...

Phase N/A

Dysarthria in Parkinson's Disease: Lusophony vs. Francophony Comparison

Background - Individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD) have to deal with several aspects that contribute to voice and speech decline and thus, alteration of communication ability during the course of the disease: (i) The orofacial motor dysfunction, so-called dysarthria, which depends on the neurodegenerative processes; (ii) The effects of the ...

Phase N/A

tDCS and Speech Therapy to Improve Aphasia

Approximately 25% of all patients after stroke suffer from aphasia. The aphasia could be so severe, that the patient cannot produce any words at all, and so the communication ability is rather poor. In that case speech therapy is the most common therapy, but the functional outcome for the patient ...
