Deficits in Explicit Language Problem Solving Rather Than in Implicit Learning in Specific Language Impairment: Evidence From Learning an Artificial Morphological Rule.

Conclusions Children with SLI were able to learn language aspects that rely on implicit, procedural learning, but experienced difficulties in learning aspects that relied on the explicit uncovering of the semantic principle of the AMR. The results suggest that some of the difficulties experienced by children with SLI when learning a complex language regularity cannot be accounted for by a broad, language-related, procedural memory disability. Rather, a deficit-perhaps a developmental delay in the ability to recruit and solve language problems and establish explicit knowledge regarding a language task-can better explain their difficulties in language learning.

Hippotherapy (hippo is Greek for horse) continues to gain recognition in our profession, but several misconceptions exist about this approach used by speech-language pathologists and other clinicians. Hippotherapy is a treatment tool—it is not a type of treatment. Compare it to using a swing or ball or other similar tool in sessions. Also used by occupational therapists and physical therapists, the tool involves placing clients on horses while providing intervention. The approach aims to engage sensory, neuromotor, and cognitive systems to enhance outcomes, according to the American Hippotherapy Association (AHA). A ...

Discussion Our results are consistent with those of prior studies that have shown that SFA treatment and phonomotor treatment generalize to untrained words that share features (semantic or phonological sequence, respectively) with the training set. However, they show that there is no significant generalization to untrained words that do not share semantic features or phonological sequence features.

You feel like you’ve tried every technique, tool, and trick to get organized. But nothing seems to work. Tasks still go unfinished, and you still find yourself frustrated and stressed out. The problem? Maybe your systems have simply lost their spark. “The ADHD brain likes novelty,” according to Barb Hubbard, M. Ed, AAC, an ADHD specialist and life strategies coach. “So, when you find a system that works, expect the newness to wear off after a while. Know that it’s OK to change systems often or make small changes that allow you to feel like it’s new again.” Maybe you’re fixate...

There ’s a dream I’ve had repeatedly in my life, including quite recently. In this dream, I am driving down a long, remote West Texas road at high speed, with no other cars around me. I’m going fast, in that way you hurtle forward on a desert highway when the perspective tricks you into picking what feels like leisurely pace until you look down and you’re doing ninety miles per hour. The sun is setting, the sky exploding in reds and oranges and a deepening purple.Suddenly, without warning or drama, the wheel comes off in my hand. I ’m holding it, gripped with panic, as the car continues down t...

Hearing impairment is one of the most common disabilities in the UK and globally. Worldwide, 60% of cases are thought to be preventable and fewer than 10% globally have access to the hearing support they need. Childhood hearing impairment can impact on development, speech, language, auditory processing, listening skills, behaviour, self-esteem, quality of life and learning. Our responsibility as clinicians is to prevent developmental impairment in these areas and ensure children with a hearing impairment have the same life chances as children who hear well.

Conclusion: Deaf children with cochlear implants who are performing well on linguistic and auditory tests can still experience serious limitations in desired functioning. Our findings suggest that a capability approach may reveal aspects of what is being achieved through rehabilitation that might otherwise remain unnoticed, and that could help to further improve the well-being of our patients.IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATIONOverall, children with cochlear implants appeared disadvantaged in certain capability areas, like accessing information, communication, social participation, and participation in school.It may be worthwh...

Conclusions The questionnaire can be applied as a structured approach to inventory hearing problems in 6 dimensions prior to hearing aid fitting and to systematically evaluate the effects of hearing aid fitting after a trial period. The data presented here can serve as normative data for comparison of individual subjects in clinical practice. PMID: 31693431 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Nurses reported limited AAC knowledge but expressed a desire for support to use AAC with their patients. AAC education and cross-sector collaboration with healthcare workers such as speech-language pathologists (SLPs) and acute care paediatric nurses are indicated to support effective communication when interacting with patients with complex communication needs (CCN).Implications for rehabilitationImproved background knowledge to develop and implement future nurse education on AAC.Foundation for cross-sector collaboration (e.g., nurses and SLPs) on AAC implementation in paediatric acute care settings.
