Longitudinal recordings may be of interest because they allow tracking of acoustic characteristics produced by an individual child during a period of rapid growth and speech development.
This is the first large study to report that victims seek help from SLPs directly for assistance with bullying incidents. SLPs stated that they received some training in addressing bullying issues but did not feel prepared. SLPs thought bullying was a problem but were undecided about the best strategies for assisting the students.
Tongue movement in the anterior-posterior plane, such as tongue retraction and advancement, was found to be crucial for the production of /w/ in typical male speakers. Thus, the articulatory kinematics of the tongue in the anterior-posterior plane and its coordination with the lips need to be further examined in speakers with dysarthria to understa...
Our study confirms the published data regarding the safety of FEES and the incidence of complications with this procedure, but also highlights that in neurologic patients with neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS, laryngospasm is more likely to occur as a severe complication. The overall risk of FEES is minimal, but it is recommended that clinici...
Diplophonia biases the reporting of dysphonia severity via perturbation measures, and their validity is questionable for these voices. In addition, diplophonia is an influential source of variance in jitter measurements. Thus, diplophonic fragments of voice samples should be excluded prior to perturbation analysis.
The TOM has potential as a global tool for measuring the broad impact, including the psychosocial benefit, from attending to untreated cleft palate.
The results revealed that speech-language therapists in Mainland China tend to be young, with little total working experience and at the first stage of their career. This may be due to the lack of systematic educational programs and national certification systems for speech-language therapists.
The Effect of Age and Type of Noise on Speech Perception under Conditions of Changing Context and Noise Levels.
Older adults are more affected by an increasing noise level of fluctuating informational noise as compared to steady-state noise. They also use less contextual cues when perceiving monosyllabic words. Further studies should take into consideration that when presenting the stimulus differently (change in noise level, less contextual cues), other per...
Our findings suggest that the aging voice might not be universally characterized by the breathy quality, which hints at the need for further research on ethnic diversity in vocal quality.
