Despite the preponderance of intervention approaches that assume a positive…

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…

Background: Children with speech-sound disorders (SSD) constitute a significant proportion of speech-language pathologists' (SLPs) caseloads. Previous research has investigated the clinical practice of SLPs intervening with children with SSD; however, little is known about the clinical decision-making underpinning their practice. Aims: The…

Chang, Huey Fang; Power, Emma; O'Halloran, Robyn; Foster, Abby – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Communication partners (CPs) find it challenging to communicate with people with communication disorders post-stroke. Stroke communication partner training (CPT) can enhance CPs' ability to support the communication and participation of people post-stroke. While evidence for the efficacy of aphasia-based CPT is strong, implementation…

Background: Children with developmental language disorder (DLD) demonstrate poor oral inferential comprehension. Research investigating the skills that underpin oral inferential comprehension in young children with DLD is necessary in order to better understand and improve inferential comprehension in this population. Aims: To profile the language…

Background: According to some studies, sentence comprehension is diminished in Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients, but they differ on what underlies the sentence comprehension impairment. Sentence comprehension in AD patients has been studied mainly in the English language. It is less clear how patients with AD speaking a morphologically rich…

Schmitt, Mary Beth; Justice, Laura M.; Logan, Jessica A. R. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: Treatment intensity is an important factor in designing and delivering treatments to children with language impairment (LI). However, to date very little is understood about cumulative intervention intensity for children with LI in the US public school system. Aims: To examine treatment intensity (dose: time spent on language;…

Ben-David, Boaz M.; Icht, Michal – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: Oral-diadochokinesis (oral-DDK) tasks are extensively used in the evaluation of motor speech abilities. Currently, validated normative data for older adults (aged 65 years and older) are missing in Hebrew. The effect of task stimuli (non-word versus real-word repetition) is also non-clear in the population of older adult Hebrew…

Bose, Arpita; Wood, Rosalind; Kiran, Swathi – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: Verbal fluency tasks are included in a broad range of aphasia assessments. It is well documented that people with aphasia (PWA) produce fewer items in these tasks. Successful performance on verbal fluency relies on the integrity of both linguistic and executive control abilities. It remains unclear if limited output in aphasia is…

Abdul Aziz, Safiyyah; Fletcher, Janet; Bayliss, Donna M. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: Past research with children with specific language impairment (SLI) has shown them to have poorer planning and problem-solving ability, and delayed self-regulatory speech (SRS) relative to their typically developing (TD) peers. However, the studies are few in number and are restricted in terms of the number and age range of…

Jongman, Suzanne R.; Roelofs, Ardi; Scheper, Annette R.; Meyer, Antje S. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: Children with specific language impairment (SLI) have problems not only with language performance but also with sustained attention, which is the ability to maintain alertness over an extended period of time. Although there is consensus that this ability is impaired with respect to processing stimuli in the auditory perceptual…

Hodges, Rosemary; Munro, Natalie; Baker, Elise; McGregor, Karla; Heard, Rob – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: Although verbal imitation can provide a valuable window into the developing language abilities of toddlers, some toddlers find verbal imitation challenging and will not comply with tests that involve elicited verbal imitation. The characteristics of stimuli that are offered to toddlers for imitation may influence how easy or hard it is…

Ito, Kiwako; Martens, Marilee A. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: Past reports on the speech production of individuals with Williams syndrome (WS) suggest that their prosody is anomalous and may lead to challenges in spoken communication. While existing prosodic assessments confirm that individuals with WS fail to use prosodic emphasis to express contrast, those reports typically lack detailed…
