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

Investigation of Anatomical Correlates of Speech Discrimination

Understanding speech is essential for good communication. Individuals with hearing loss and poor speech discrimination often have little success with hearing aids because amplifying sound improves audibility, but not clarity of the speech signal. The purpose of this study is to determine the relative importance of the sensory cells of ...

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

Melodic-Intonation-Therapy and Speech-Repetition-Therapy for Patients With Non-fluent Aphasia

One of the few accepted treatments for severe non-fluent aphasia is Melodic Intonation Therapy (MIT). Inspired by the common clinical observation that patients can actually sing the lyrics of a song better than they can speak the same words, MIT emphasizes the prosody of speech through the use of slow, ...


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

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

Synchronous rTMS and Computer-integrated Speech Training Applied in Aphasic Patients and the Neuroimaging Study

The efficacy of synchronous rTMS protocol integrated with computer-integrated speech training is not well understood. It is also not clear regarding the efficacy of compound bi-hemispheric stimulation protocol. The aim of the study is to investigate language response to these new strategies and to determine the longevity of the therapeutic ...

Phase N/A

Interest of Combining Speech Therapy With a Non-invasive Brain Stimulation (tDCS) for the Aphasic Patient

This is a multicenter, cross-over, randomized, controlled and double blind study. 24 patients will be included between November 2015 and November 2017. During each session of speech and language treatment, aphasics will receive a weak 2 milli amperes (electric) current delivered by a tDCs device for 20 minutes. The stimulation ...

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 ...
