Why Join SIG 3, Voice and Upper Airway Disorders?

Consider becoming a SIG 3 affiliate to connect with peers who share a passion for treating voice and upper airway disorders. What would you say to encourage other colleagues to join SIG 3? SIG 3 provides valuable opportunities to discuss clinical practice and research in voice and upper airway disorders, get advice from colleagues, and form lasting relationships with other clinicians with similar interests. If you have a strong interest in voice and upper airway disorders and want to expand your knowledge and your practice, it is an excellent resource. How has your involvement in this SIG improved your understanding of and engagement with voice and upper airway disorders? I have always had a very strong interest in voice, since graduate school, and even before. Being a member of SIG 3 has helped me become more engaged in promoting knowledge about this area and advocating for our patients. What is one hot topic discussed by your SIG that you feel the rest of your profession should know about? One area that always sparks discussion is the role of the voice-specialized SLP, and the role of the singing teacher (or voice coach), and how these overlap. In the area of voice, we have a lot of fantastic opportunities to collaborate with other professionals, but sometimes there are questions about where the role of one ends and the other begins. Having strong avenues of communication helps keep these relationships smooth. What are the specific tangible benefits? The less-tan...

However, limitations in the methodological quality of the studies that were reviewed could have resulted in inflated diagnostic accuracy and decreased validity.

As school ends for summer and families plan summer vacations, speech-language pathologists plan activities for caregivers and families to work on with their child, sibling, niece, or cousin. Coaching families can boost a child’s progress over summer break or help them maintain key communication skills. Coaching by caregivers and siblings can happen anywhere, with any age child, no matter the type of communication disorder. Teaching family members—whether it’s parents, step-parents, grandparents, siblings, or cousins—your strategies or “tricks” empowers them and can result in better long-...

Publication date: Available online 6 June 2019Source: NeuroImage: ClinicalAuthor(s): Christian Montag, Benjamin Bleek, Martin Reuter, Thilo Müller, Bernd Weber, Sebastian MarkettAbstractA prominent theory of developmental stuttering highlights (dys-)function of the basal ganglia (and in particular the ventral striatum) as a main neural mechanism behind this speech disorder. Although the theory is intriguing, studies on gray matter volume differences in the basal ganglia between people who stutter and control persons have reported heterogeneous findings, either showing more or less gray matter volume of the aforementio...

Authors: Kaipa R, Howard B, Kaipa R, Turcat E, Prema L Abstract The current study compared the role of massed versus distributed practice in learning novel foreign language utterances. Fifty healthy native English-speaking participants were randomly assigned to either massed or distributed practice groups. All participants practiced eight novel French utterances 25 times each for a total of 200 times, with the spacing of practice sessions differing between the two groups. Both the groups completed an immediate retention as well as a delayed retention test. Participants' learning was evaluated based on phonetic accu...

Conclusions Our results suggest that children with DLD benefit from signs for word learning, regardless of their linguistic and cognitive abilities. This implies that using sign-supported speech as a means to improve the vocabulary skills of children with DLD is effective, even still at the age of 9-11 years.
