Turkington, Leisa; Ward, Elizabeth C.; Farrell, Anna; Porter, Linda; Wall, Laurelie R. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: The need for effective compensatory strategies in neurogenic dysphagia management has led to the exploration of sensory enhancement strategies (SES), such as carbonated liquids. Despite some positive findings, evidence related to the efficacy of carbonation as an SES is limited. Aims: To determine if carbonated thin liquids reduced…

Kruythoff-Broekman, Astrid; Wiefferink, Carin; Rieffe, Carolien; Uilenburg, Noëlle – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Late language emergence is a risk indicator for developmental language disorder. Parent-implemented early language intervention programmes (parent programmes) have been shown to have positive effects on children's receptive and expressive language skills. However, long-term effectiveness has rarely been studied. Additionally, little is…

Välimaa, Taina; Kunnari, Sari; Laukkanen-Nevala, Päivi; Lonka, Eila – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Children with unilateral cochlear implants (CIs) may have delayed vocabulary development for an extended period after implantation. Bilateral cochlear implantation is reported to be associated with improved sound localization and enhanced speech perception in noise. This study proposed that bilateral implantation might also promote…

Nispen, Karin; Mieke, W. M. E.; van de Sandt-Koenderman, E.; Krahmer, Emiel – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: People with aphasia (PWA) use pantomime, gesture in absence of speech, differently from non-brain-damaged people (NBDP). Aims: To evaluate through an exploratory study the comprehensibility of PWA's pantomimes and to find out whether they can compensate for information PWA are unable to convey in speech. Methods & Procedures: A…

Marshall, C. R.; Jones, A.; Fastelli, A.; Atkinson, J.; Botting, N.; Morgan, G. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Deafness has an adverse impact on children's ability to acquire spoken languages. Signed languages offer a more accessible input for deaf children, but because the vast majority are born to hearing parents who do not sign, their early exposure to sign language is limited. Deaf children as a whole are therefore at high risk of language…

Background: Children with sex chromosome trisomies (SCT) frequently show problems in language development. However, a clear description of the communicative patterns of these children is still lacking. Aims: To describe the first stages of language development in children with SCT in comparison with those in typically developing (TD) children. The…

Antonsson, Malin; Johansson, Charlotte; Hartelius, Lena; Henriksson, Ingrid; Longoni, Francesca; Wengelin, Åsa – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Low-grade glioma (LGG) is a type of brain tumour often situated in or near areas involved in language, sensory or motor functions. Depending on localization and tumour characteristics, language or cognitive impairments due to tumour growth and/or surgical resection are obvious risks. One task that may be at risk is writing, both…

Van der Linden, Lize; Verreyt, Nele; De Letter, Miet; Hemelsoet, Dimitri; Mariën, Peter; Santens, Patrick; Stevens, Michaël; Szmalec, Arnaud; Duyck, Wouter – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Until today, there is no satisfying explanation for why one language may recover worse than another in differential bilingual aphasia. One potential explanation that has been largely unexplored is that differential aphasia is the consequence of a loss of language control rather than a loss of linguistic representations. Language…

Bhagwat, Marita; Hewetson, Ronelle; Jones, Lee; Hill, Anne; Nunn, Jennifer; Tosh, Rachel; Cahill, Louise – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: To meet rising clinical placement demand caused by increasing health student numbers, the use of paired (two students) rather than single (one student) placement models has been proposed. There is, however, limited research available to inform placement providers about the relative effects of both models on healthcare services,…
