Holm, Alison; Farrier, Faith; Dodd, Barbara – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2008

One problem lies in determining which preschool children with…

Crosbie, Sharon; Holm, Alison; Dodd, Barbara – International Journal of Language and Communication Disorders, 2005
Background: Children with speech disorder are a heterogeneous group (e.g. in terms of severity, types of errors and underlying causal factors). Much research has ignored this heterogeneity, giving rise to contradictory intervention study findings. This situation provides clinical motivation to identify the deficits in the speech-processing chain…

Broomfield, Jan; Dodd, Barbara – International Journal of Language and Communication Disorders, 2004
Background: There has been no previous incidence survey of children referred to a speech and language therapy service in the UK.

Reliable data are needed concerning the…
