- Malocclusion in children with speech sound disorders and motor speech involvement: a cross-sectional clinical study in Swedish childrenby Å Mogren on July 1, 2022
CONCLUSION: Children with SSD and motor speech involvement are more likely to have a higher prevalence of and more severe malocclusions than children with TSD.
- Introduction: Innovations in Treatment for Children With Speech Sound Disordersby Kelly Farquharson on June 28, 2022
CONCLUSION: The traditional articulation approach is the most commonly used approach in school-based settings; however, there are many children for whom this approach is not appropriate. We hope to provide a robust resource for busy school-based speech-language pathologists who treat children with SSD-specifically, we hope clinicians embrace the opportunity to "think outside the box" of traditional articulation therapy.
- Characterizing sensorimotor profiles in children with residual speech sound disorder: a pilot studyby Heather Kabakoff on June 21, 2022
CONCLUSION: The predicted relationships among somatosensory acuity, motor skill, and acoustically measured /ɹ/ production accuracy were observed after treatment, but unexpectedly did not hold before treatment. The surprising finding that greater tongue shape complexity was associated with lower accuracy at pre-treatment highlights the importance of evaluating tongue shape patterns (e.g., using ultrasound) prior to treatment, and has the potential to suggest that children with high tongue shape...
- A Nonword Repetition Task Discriminates Typically Developing Italian-German Bilingual Children From Bilingual Children With Developmental Language Disorder: The Role of Language-Specific and Language-Non-specific Nonwordsby Maren Rebecca Eikerling on June 20, 2022
In bi- and monolingual children, nonword repetition tasks (NWRTs) differentiate between typically developing (TD) and children with Developmental Language Disorder (DLD). Language specificity is a crucial factor in nonword construction especially for multilingual children. While language-specific nonwords seem less artificial than non-specific nonwords, the application of language-specific phonemes may be less suitable for bilingual children who are exposed to the target language less than...
