Wray, Faye; Clarke, David; Forster, Anne – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Interest in how stroke survivors might be better supported to manage life after stroke has grown rapidly in recent years, with a particular emphasis on enabling 'self-management'. Post-stroke communication difficulties may pose a unique barrier to longer term adaptation and adjustment. It is important to understand how stroke survivors…

Boyce, Jessica O.; Sanchez, Katherine; Amor, David J.; Reilly, Sheena; Da Costa, Annette; Kilpatrick, Nicky; Morgan, Angela T. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Submucous cleft palate (SMCP) has a heterogeneous presentation and is often identified late or misdiagnosed. Diagnosis is prompted by speech, resonance or feeding symptoms associated with velopharyngeal insufficiency. However, the broader impacts of SMCP on communication have rarely been examined and therefore are poorly understood.…

Sugden, Eleanor; Lloyd, Susan; Lam, Jenny; Cleland, Joanne – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: As cost and access barriers to ultrasound technology have decreased, interest in using ultrasound visual biofeedback (U-VBF) as a tool for remediating speech sound disorders (SSD) has increased. A growing body of research has investigated U-VBF in intervention for developmental SSD; however, diversity in study design, participant…

Stockwell, Katy; Alabdulqader, Ebtisam; Jackson, Dan; Basu, Anna; Olivier, Patrick; Pennington, Lindsay – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Communication training for parents of young children with neurodisability is often delivered in groups and includes video coaching. Group teaching is problematic when there is wide variation in the characteristics and needs amongst participants. Aims: To assess the potential feasibility and acceptability of delivering one-to-one parent…

Wood, Sara E.; Timmins, Claire; Wishart, Jennifer; Hardcastle, William J.; Cleland, Joanne – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Electropalatography (EPG) records details of the location and timing of tongue contacts with the hard palate during speech. It has been effective in treating articulation disorders that have failed to respond to conventional therapy approaches but, until now, its use with children and adolescents with intellectual/learning disabilities…

Background: Functional neurological disorder (FND) is common across healthcare settings. The "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders" states that speech and swallowing symptoms can be present in FND. Despite this, there is a dearth of guidelines for speech and language therapists (SLTs) for this client group. Aims: To…

Icht, Michal – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Individuals with intellectual disability (ID) often demonstrate speech impairments and reduced intelligibility. However, traditional treatment methods, which involve using repetitive verbal and non-verbal exercises, may not be fully suitable for this population. As adults with ID tend to lose interest and motivation facing the demands…

Davies, Karen E.; Marshall, Julie; Brown, Laura J. E.; Goldbart, Juliet – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Current research investigating collaboration between parents and speech and language therapists (SLTs) indicates that the SLT role is characterized by therapist-led practice. Co-working with parents of children with speech and language difficulties is less frequently described. In order to embrace co-working during intervention, the…

Namasivayam, Aravind K.; Pukonen, Margit; Goshulak, Debra; Granata, Francesca; Le, D. James; Kroll, Robert; van Lieshout, Pascal – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: Treatment outcome data for children with severe speech sound disorders with motor speech involvement (SSD-MSI) are derived from Phase I clinical research studies. These studies have demonstrated positive improvements in speech production. Currently there is no research examining the optimal treatment dose frequency for this population.…

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…

Sjögreen, Lotta; Mårtensson, Åsa; Ekström, Anne-Berit – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) is a slowly progressive multi-systemic disease with an autosomal-dominant inheritance caused by a mutation on chromosome 19 (19q13.3). Aims: To explore speech characteristics in a group of individuals with the congenital and childhood-onset forms of DM1 in terms of intelligibility, speech-sound…

Wren, Yvonne; Harding, Sam; Goldbart, Juliet; Roulstone, Sue – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Multiple interventions have been developed to address speech sound disorder (SSD) in children. Many of these have been evaluated but the evidence for these has not been considered within a model which categorizes types of intervention. The opportunity to carry out a systematic review of interventions for SSD arose as part of a larger…

Cocks, Naomi; Byrne, Suzanne; Pritchard, Madeleine; Morgan, Gary; Dipper, Lucy – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Information from speech and gesture is often integrated to comprehend a message. This integration process requires the appropriate allocation of cognitive resources to both the gesture and speech modalities. People with aphasia are likely to find integration of gesture and speech difficult. This is due to a reduction in cognitive…

Lanyon, Lucette; Worrall, Linda; Rose, Miranda – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Participation in a group environment is an inherently complex undertaking for people with aphasia. It involves engaging in multi-person interactions with other people who may have a range of communication strengths and strategies at their disposal. The potential challenges of community aphasia-group participation and practice has had…

Wren, Yvonne; Humphries, Kerry; Stock, Nicola Marie; Rumsey, Nichola; Lewis, Sarah; Davies, Amy; Bennett, Rhiannon; Sandy, Jonathan – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Efforts to increase the evidence base in speech and language therapy are often limited by methodological factors that have restricted the strength of the evidence to the lower levels of the evidence hierarchy. Where higher graded studies, such as randomized controlled trials, have been carried out, it has sometimes been difficult to…
