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

Treatment Intensity - Apraxia of Speech

This research is designed to examine the effects of treatment intensity on outcomes associated with an established treatment for acquired apraxia of speech (AOS). Intensity in the form of dose frequency and total intervention duration will be evaluated with Sound Production Treatment (SPT). The investigators will examine the effects of ...

Phase N/A

Innovative Measures of Speech and Swallowing Dysfunction in Neurological Disorders

Speech and swallowing abnormalities are important symptoms associated with disorders of the central nervous system, motor neuron disease (such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), myasthenia gravis, and primary muscle conditions. In addition to characterizing the evolution in muscle architecture that could underlie associated orofacial weakness, identifying new ways to measure these ...

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

Rare Disease Patient Registry & Natural History Study - Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford

CoRDS collects contact, sociodemographic and health information about participants. This information is entered into CoRDS and linked to a unique coded identifier. Below are some examples of information requested on the Questionnaire that will be entered into CoRDS: Contact information: Name, Mailing Address, Phone Number, Email Address Sociodemographic information: Date ...

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 ...
