- Gross, Fine and Visual-Motor Skills in Children with Language Disorder, Speech Sound Disorder and Their Combinationby Cristiana Varuzza on January 21, 2023
Increasing evidence shows that children with Communication Disorders (CDs) may show gross, fine, and visual-motor difficulties compared to children with typical development. Accordingly, the present study aims to characterize gross, fine and visual-motor skills in children with CDs, distinguishing children with CDs into three subgroups, i.e., with Language Disorders (LD), Speech Sound Disorders (SSD), and LD + SSD. In Experiment 1, around 60% of children with CDs (4 to 7 years; 21 with LD, 36...
- Delving into the Genetic Causes of Language Impairment in a Case of Partial Deletion of NRXN1by Antonio Benítez-Burraco on January 20, 2023
INTRODUCTION: Copy-number variations (CNVs) impacting on small DNA stretches and associated with language deficits provide a unique window to the role played by specific genes in language function.
- Disentangling influences of dyslexia, development, and reading experience on effective brain connectivity in childrenby Sarah V Di Pietro on January 13, 2023
Altered brain connectivity between regions of the reading network has been associated with reading difficulties. However, it remains unclear whether connectivity differences between children with dyslexia (DYS) and those with typical reading skills (TR) are specific to reading impairments or to reading experience. In this functional MRI study, 132 children (M = 10.06 y, SD = 1.46) performed a phonological lexical decision task. We aimed to disentangle (1) disorder-specific from (2)...
- The Contribution of Perceptual Reasoning Skills to Phonological Awareness for School Age Autistic Childrenby Charlotte Rimmer on January 10, 2023
This study aimed to investigate the phonological awareness (PA) skills of school age autistic children (age range = 6-12) in two parts: (1) comparing their performance on a PA task to non-autistic children with groups matched on chronological age, verbal and non-verbal cognitive skills, and (2) exploring the role of cognitive skills and autism characteristics on PA skills. Results revealed that the groups did not differ in their PA skills (study 1) and that perceptual reasoning skills are...
