Protocol for the Connected Speech Transcription of Children with Speech Disorders: An Example from Childhood Apraxia of Speech
Conclusion: Connected speech transcription is challenging. The CoST-P may be a useful resource for speech-language pathologists and clinical researchers. Use of the CoST-P assisted in displaying CAS speech characteristics unique to connected speech (e.g., inter-word segregation and juncture).Folia Phoniatr Logop (Source: Folia Phoniatrica et Logopaedica)

Evaluation of Postural Changes Using Dynamic Posturography after Speech Rehabilitation in Patients with Voice Disorders: A Longitudinal Study
Conclusions: The posturographic analysis showed a significant difference in the visual, vestibular, and proprioceptive component of posture after voice therapy. These results showed that dysphonic patients changed their postural patterns after an effective voice treatment, with an improvement in postural performance. It seems like modifications of breathing pattern and voice production techniques led to objective and measurable postural changes.Folia Phoniatr Logop (Source: Folia Phoniatrica et Logopaedica)

Error Patterns of Dorsal Rhotics: Evidence from Hebrew-Speaking Children
Conclusions: The result demonstrating a higher rate of errors in initial word positions may be due to the relatively late acquisition of the initial onset position in multisyllabic Hebrew words. Alternatively, this finding may result from the greater degree of allophonic variation found in this position. The finding that languages with dorsal rhotics have unique error patterns compared to other rhotics strengthens the evidence that rhotic error patterns are dependent on the rhotics ’ phonetic characteristics.Folia Phoniatr Logop (Source: Folia Phoniatrica et Logopaedica)

A Tool for Grammatical Development Assessment in a Second Language
Objective: This paper describes an alternative assessment tool for second language learning, based on Processing Theory (PT). The basis of this theory is that language learners cannot acquire what they cannot process. This paper presents a tool, based on this theory that avoids the over- or under-diagnosis of language impairment in second language learners.Method: This tool has five levels, with the prerequisites for the following step at each level. Each level is designed to determine children ’s ability to process language factors required at each stage. The five levels begin with identification and acquisition of ...

Speech and Language Therapy Services for Multilingual Children with Migration Background: A Cross-Sectional Survey in Germany
This study examines the current provision of SLT services for multilingual children following a medical prescription for the specific case of suspected language disorder. Information was obtained from speech-language pathologists (SLPs) representing 28 practices in different districts across one of the moderately largest cities affected by sociospatial polarization. The SLT practices were clustered according to the proportion of minor migrants and minor welfare recipients in the district. The survey included the number and proportion of multilingual children on the SLT caseloads, as well as the age of children by time of r...

Speech, Language, and Communication in a Public Health Context: A UK Perspective with Potential Global Application – An Opinion Piece
Speech and language therapists often contribute to public awareness campaigns as well as supporting, teaching and promoting the facilitation of speech, language, communication, and safe swallowing with the general public and health and social care professionals. These are sometimes considered as public health interventions. It is important to consider the objectives, costs, and impact of this involvement in the same way as reviewing the evidence associated with the more personally targeted interventions with individuals or groups of clients with specific conditions.

Neural Underpinnings of Early Speech Perception and Emergent Literacy
Mismatch negativity (MMN) is an event-related potential component used to index automatic auditory change detection. Thus, MMN provides an excellent tool to assess the speech sensitivity of infants and children. Although MMN is well established in adults, the polarity and latency of mismatch responses (MMRs) in infants are highly inconsistent across studies. This paper aims to provide a comprehensive review of MMN studies of speech perception in early infancy. In particular, data from a series of MMN studies of Mandarin lexical tone, vowels, and initial consonants will be presented to demonstrate how phonological saliency,...

Measuring Quality of Life in the Speaker with Dysarthria: Reliability and Validity of the European Portuguese Version of the QoL-DyS
Conclusion: The QoL-DyS correlated positively with the QAD, PEAT-10, and EQ5D. Cronbach ’s α was 0.973, and it remained excellent when any item was deleted. The QoL-DyS score mean difference between the non-dysarthric cohort and the dysarthric cohort was also significant.
