Sutherland, Rebecca; Trembath, David; Hodge, Marie Antoinette; Rose, Veronica; Roberts, Jacqueline – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Access to timely and appropriate speech-language pathology (SLP) services is a significant challenge for many families. Telehealth has been used successfully to treat a range of communication disorders in children and adults. Research examining the use of telehealth for children with autism has focused largely on diagnosis,…

Conway, Laura J.; Levickis, Penny A.; Mensah, Fiona; McKean, Cristina; Smith, Kylie; Reilly, Sheena – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: Evidence suggests that language and social, emotional and behavioural (SEB) difficulties are associated in children and adolescents. When these associations emerge and whether they differ by language or SEB difficulty profile is unclear. This knowledge is crucial to guide prevention and intervention programmes for children with…

D'haeseleer, Evelien; Vanden Meerschaut, Frauke; Bettens, Kim; Luyten, Anke; Gysels, Hannelore; Thienpont, Ylenia; De Witte, Griet; Heindryckx, Björn; Oostra, Ann; Roeyers, Herbert; De Sutter, Petra; van Lierde, Kristiane РInternational Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2014
Background: The effect of assisted reproduction technology (ART) on language development is still unclear. Moreover, different techniques are introduced at rapid pace and are not always accompanied by extensive follow-up programmes. Aims: To investigate the language development of 3-10-year-old children born following ART using intracytoplasmic…

Eadie, Patricia; Nguyen, Cattram; Carlin, John; Bavin, Edith; Bretherton, Lesley; Reilly, Sheena – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2014
Background: Language impairment (LI) in the preschool years is known to vary over time. Stability in the diagnosis of LI may be influenced by children's individual variability, the measurement error of commonly used assessment instruments and the cut-points used to define impairment. Aims: To investigate the agreement between two different…

Epstein, Baila; Hestvik, Arild; Shafer, Valerie L.; Schwartz, Richard G. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2013
Background: Children with specific language impairment (SLI) show particular difficulty comprehending and producing object ("Who did the bear follow?") relative to subject ("Who followed the tiger?") "wh"-questions. Aims: To determine if school-age children with SLI, relative to children with typical development (TD),…

Coady, Jeffry A.; Mainela-Arnold, Elina; Evans, Julia L. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2013
Background & Aims: The present study examined how phonological and lexical knowledge influences memory in children with specific language impairments (SLI). Previous work showed recall advantages for typical adults and children due to word frequency and phonotactic pattern frequency and a recall disadvantage due to phonological similarity…

Hasson, Natalie; Dodd, Barbara; Botting, Nicola – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2012
Background: Sentence construction and syntactic organization are known to be poor in children with specific language impairments (SLI), but little is known about the way in which children with SLI approach language tasks, and static standardized tests contribute little to the differentiation of skills within the population of children with…

Riches, Nick G. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2012
Background: Sentence repetition (SR) is a reliable clinical marker of specific language impairment (SLI). However, little is known about cognitive processes underpinning SR, or areas of breakdown in children with SLI. Aims: The study investigated which cognitive mechanisms were most closely involved in SR performance: syntactic knowledge,…

Ebbels, Susan H.; Nicoll, Hilary; Clark, Becky; Eachus, Beth; Gallagher, Aoife L.; Horniman, Karen; Jennings, Mary; McEvoy, Kate; Nimmo, Liz; Turner, Gail – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2012
Background: Word-finding difficulties (WFDs) in children have been hypothesized to be caused at least partly by poor semantic knowledge. Therefore, improving semantic knowledge should decrease word-finding errors. Previous studies of semantic therapy for WFDs are inconclusive. Aims: To investigate the effectiveness of semantic therapy for…

Riches, N. G.; Loucas, T.; Baird, G.; Charman, T.; Simonoff, E. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2010
Background: Recent studies have indicated that many children with autism spectrum disorders present with language difficulties that are similar to those of children with specific language impairments, leading some to argue for similar structural deficits in these two disorders. Aims: Repetition of sentences involving long-distance dependencies was…

Archibald, Lisa M. D.; Alloway, Tracy Packiam – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2008
Background: Although it is widely recognized that substantial heterogeneity exists in the cognitive profiles of children with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD), very little is known about the language skills of this group. Aims: To compare the language abilities of children with DCD with a group whose language impairment has been well…
