Estimates of the prevalence of speech and motor speech disorders in persons with complex neurodevelopmental disorders.

Estimates of the prevalence of speech and motor speech disorders in persons with complex neurodevelopmental disorders. Clin Linguist Phon. 2019;33(8):707-736 Authors: Shriberg LD, Strand EA, Jakielski KJ, Mabie HL Abstract Estimates of the prevalence of speech and motor speech disorders in persons with complex neurodevelopmental disorders (CND) can inform research in the biobehavioural origins and treatment of CND. The goal of this research was to use measures and analytics in a diagnostic classification system to estimate the prevalence of speech and motor speech disorders in convenience samples of speakers with one of eight types of CND. Audio-recorded conversational speech samples from 346 participants with one of eight types of CND were obtained from a database of participants recruited for genetic and behavioural studies of speech sound disorders (i.e., excluding dysfluency) during the past three decades. Data reduction methods for the speech samples included narrow phonetic transcription, prosody-voice coding, and acoustic analyses. Standardized measures were used to cross-classify participants' speech and motor speech status. Compared to the 17.8% prevalence of four types of motor speech disorders reported in a study of 415 participants with idiopathic Speech Delay (SD), 47.7% of the present participants with CND met criteria for one of four motor speech disorders, including Speech Motor Delay (25.1%), Childhood Dysarthria (13.3%), Childhood Aprax...

CONCLUSION: The studies confirmed the effectiveness of various forms of VR treatment in the alleviation of psychological and behavioral problems and psychiatric disorders. There is a shortage of VR-based technological solutions that would, besides physical rehabilitation, offer stroke patients therapeutic tools to alleviate psychological disturbance and improve the patient's mood and motivation. Such solutions will most likely become a field of intensive research in the coming years. PMID: 32741792 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion:We recommend:(1) As in normal times, during the COVID-19 pandemic wave, patients need to seek urgent medical attention in case of any acute cerebrovascular event. This will assure they receive needed rapid cerebrovascular secondary prevention in addition to acute intravenous and endovascular reperfusion strategies.(2) As in normal times, during the COVID-19 pandemic wave, it is of utmost importance that patients adhere to their individual recommendations for secondary prevention.(3) Optimal secondary but also primary cerebrovascular prevention might reduce the burden of COVID-19 now and during potential subseque...

Osteoarthritis (OA), as one of the top 10 causes of physical disability, is characterized by inflammation of the synovial membrane and progressive destruction of the articular cartilage. Cinnamic aldehyde (CA), an α,β-unsaturated aldehyde extracted from the traditional Chinese herbal medicine cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum J.Presl), has been reported to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anticancer properties. However, the anti-inflammatory effect of CA on OA remains unclear. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effects of CA on inflammation, and cartilage degeneration in OA. A CCK-8 assay w...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewFrailty is characterized by decreased physiological reserve and increased risk of falls, disability, hospitalization, and mortality. Frail older adults may benefit from exercise interventions targeting their multiple problems and functional deficits; however, most research focuses on center-based interventions, which may present accessibility challenges for frail older adults. Therefore, the purpose of this review is to summarize the most recently published home-based exercise interventions for frail older adults living at home.Recent FindingsEight manuscripts met inclusion criteria.
