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…

Zampini, Laura; Draghi, Lara; Silibello, Gaia; Dall'Ara, Francesca; Rigamonti, Claudia; Suttora, Chiara; Zanchi, Paola; Salerni, Nicoletta; Lalatta, Faustina; Vizziello, Paola – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
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…

Heymann, Perrine; Northrup, Jessie B.; West, Kelsey L.; Parladé, Meaghan V.; Leezenbaum, Nina B.; Iverson, Jana M. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Research indicates that social communicative behaviours develop atypically during the second year in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This study evaluated whether these behaviours also differed in the extent to which they were coordinated across modalities. Aims: To measure joint attention behaviours (e.g., gaze shifts, gestures),…

Bavin, Edith L.; Sarant, Julia; Leigh, Greg; Prendergast, Luke; Busby, Peter; Peterson, Candida – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Language outcomes for children with cochlear implants (CIs) vary widely, even for those implanted before 2 years of age. Identifying the main influencing factors that account for some of the variability is important in order to provide information to guide appropriate clinical and intervention services for young children with CIs.…

Sproson, Lise; Pownall, Sue; Enderby, Pam; Freeman, Jenny – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Dysphagia is common after stroke, affecting up to 50% of patients initially. It can lead to post-stroke pneumonia, which causes 30% of stroke-related deaths, a longer hospital stay and poorer health outcomes. Dysphagia care post-stroke generally focuses on the management of symptoms, via modified oral intake textures and adapted…

Conti-Ramsden, Gina; Durkin, Kevin; Toseeb, Umar; Botting, Nicola; Pickles, Andrew – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Developmental language disorder (DLD) presents a considerable barrier for young adults to engage in further education and training. Early studies with young adults with DLD revealed poor educational achievement and lack of opportunities to progress in education. More recent studies have provided more positive findings. Relatively…

Pritchard, Madeleine; Hilari, Katerina; Cocks, Naomi; Dipper, Lucy – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Discourse in adults with aphasia is increasingly the focus of assessment and therapy research. A broad range of measures is available to describe discourse, but very limited information is available on their psychometric properties. As a result, the quality of these measures is unknown, and there is very little evidence to motivate the…

Pritchard, Madeleine; Hilari, Katerina; Cocks, Naomi; Dipper, Lucy – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: Discourse is fundamental to everyday communication, and is an increasing focus of clinical assessment, intervention and research. Aphasia can affect the information a speaker communicates in discourse. Little is known about the psychometrics of the tools for measuring information in discourse, which means it is unclear whether these…

Wray, Charlotte; Norbury, Courtenay Frazier; Alcock, Katie – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2016
Background: Specific language impairment (SLI) is diagnosed when language is significantly below chronological age expectations in the absence of other developmental disorders, sensory impairments or global developmental delays. It has been suggested that gesture may enhance communication in children with SLI by providing an alternative means to…

Ward, Elizabeth C.; Jarman, Leigh; Cornwell, Petrea L.; Amsters, Delena I. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2016
Background: Post-spinal cord injury (SCI), individuals may exhibit mild to moderate impairments in aspects of speech influenced by impaired respiratory support. However, limited research has been conducted into the impact of these impairments on activity and participation when living in the community. Aims: To examine the nature and extent of…

Wong, Betty; Brebner, Chris; McCormack, Paul; Butcher, Andy – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2015
Background: The nature of speech disorders in individuals with Down Syndrome (DS) remains controversial despite various explanations put forth in the literature to account for the observed speech profiles. A high level of word production inconsistency in children with DS has led researchers to query whether the inconsistency continues into…

Cocquyt, Mie; Mommaerts, Maurice Yves; Dewart, Hazel; Zink, Inge – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2015
Background: For the early detection of children who are at risk of communication problems, we need appropriate assessment instruments. Two Dutch-language standardised screening instruments are available: the Dutch version of the Non Speech Test (NNST) and the Dutch version of the MacArthur Communicative Development Inventories (N-CDIs). These…

Greenslade, Kathryn J.; Coggins, Truman E. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2014
Background: Identifying what a communication partner is looking at (referential intention) and why (social intention) is essential to successful social communication, and may be challenging for children with social communication deficits. This study explores a clinical task that assesses these intention-reading abilities within an authentic…

Davidow, Jason H. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2014
Background: Metronome-paced speech results in the elimination, or substantial reduction, of stuttering moments. The cause of fluency during this fluency-inducing condition is unknown. Several investigations have reported changes in speech pattern characteristics from a control condition to a metronome-paced speech condition, but failure to control…

Lagerberg, Tove B.; Åsberg, Jakob; Hartelius, Lena; Persson, Christina – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2014
Background: Intelligibility is a speaker's ability to convey a message to a listener. Including an assessment of intelligibility is essential in both research and clinical work relating to individuals with communication disorders due to speech impairment. Assessment of the intelligibility of spontaneous speech can be used as an overall…
