Bruce, Carolyn; Newton, Caroline – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Many people with aphasia have word-finding difficulties, with some showing particular difficulties with verbs.

Morgan, Lydia; Marshall, Julie; Harding, Sam; Powell, Gaye; Wren, Yvonne; Coad, Jane; Roulstone, Sue – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Several studies have suggested that practitioners hold speech and language therapy (SLT) practice as tacit and consequently it is difficult for the therapist to describe. The current study uses a range of knowledge elicitation (KE) approaches, a technique not used before in SLT, as a way of accessing this tacit knowledge. There is…

Hudock, Daniel; Kalinowski, Joseph – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2014
Background: Overt stuttering is inhibited by approximately 80% when people who stutter read aloud as they hear an altered form of their speech feedback to them. However, levels of stuttering inhibition vary from 60% to 100% depending on speaking situation and signal presentation. For example, binaural presentations of delayed auditory feedback…

Background: The psychosocial impact of acquired dysarthria on the speaker is well recognized. To date, speech-and-language therapists have no instrument available to measure this construct.

Best, Wendy; Greenwood, Alison; Grassly, Jennie; Hickin, Julie – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2008
Background: Studies of therapy with people with aphasia tend to use impairment-based and functional measures of outcome. The views of participants are not formally evaluated. Current health and socialcare practice requires intervention to be explicitly client-centred and evidence-based. It is therefore important to investigate the broader effects…
