The Impact of Hearing Experience on Children's Use of Phonological and Semantic Information During Lexical Access
Conclusions Children with CIs were able to process single words similarly to their counterparts with normal hearing. However, children with CIs appeared to have increased reliance on surrounding semantic information compared to their normal-hearing counterparts.PMID:34106737 | DOI:10.1044/2021_JSLHR-20-00547 (Source: Journal of speech, language, and hearing research : JSLHR)

Describing Vocalizations in Young Children: A Big Data Approach Through Citizen Science Annotation
Conclusions Annotations obtained through a citizen science platform can help us overcome challenges posed by the process of annotating daylong speech recordings. Particularly when used in composites or derived metrics, such annotations can be used to investigate early markers of language delays.PMID:34098723 | DOI:10.1044/2021_JSLHR-20-00661 (Source: Journal of speech, language, and hearing research : JSLHR)

Frequency-Following Response in Newborns and Infants: A Systematic Review of Acquisition Parameters
Conclusions There is a consensus in the use of some acquisition parameters of the FFR with speech stimulus, such as the vertical mounting, the use of alternating polarity, a sampling rate of 20000 Hz, and the /da/ synthesized syllable of 40 ms in duration as the preferred stimulus. Although these parameters show some consensus, the results disclosed lack of a single established protocol for FFR acquisition with speech stimulus in infants in the investigated age range.PMID:34057846 | DOI:10.1044/2021_JSLHR-20-00639 (Source: Journal of speech, language, and hearing research : JSLHR)

Stroke Recurrence and Its Relationship With Language Abilities
Conclusions History of prior stroke in itself may not significantly influence language impairment after an additional acute left hemisphere stroke, unless it contributes substantially to the total volume of infarcted brain tissue. Chronic and acute lesion volumes should be accounted for in studies investigating poststroke language performance and recovery.

Cross-Validation and Normative Values for the German Vocal Tract Discomfort Scale
J Speech Lang Hear Res. 2021 May 26:1-14. doi: 10.1044/2021_JSLHR-20-00462. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPurpose The Vocal Tract Discomfort Scale (VTD Scale) is a self-rating questionnaire investigating physical symptoms in the larynx associated with vocal pathology. The aim of this work was to investigate the reliability, validity, sensitivity, and specificity of the first German version and to provide normative data with thresholds for pathology and a scaling scheme. Study Design A retrospective multicenter study was performed. Method A total of 571 participants (409 female and 162 male), with a mean age of 47.2 years, ...

Adaptation and Validation of the Dynamic Imaging Grade of Swallowing Toxicity for Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing: DIGEST-FEES
J Speech Lang Hear Res. 2021 May 25:1-9. doi: 10.1044/2021_JSLHR-21-00014. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPurpose While flexible endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) is a common clinical procedure used in the head and neck cancer (HNC) population, extant outcome measures for FEES such as bolus-level penetration-aspiration and residue scores are not well suited as global patient-level endpoint measures of dysphagia severity in cooperative group trials or clinical outcomes research. The Dynamic Imaging Grade of Swallowing Toxicity (DIGEST) was initially developed and validated for use during videofluoroscopic evaluation...

Measures of Psychological Impacts of Stuttering in Young School-Age Children: A Systematic Review
Conclusions The results highlight a lack of available measures in this domain and poor practices in developing and testing measurement instruments. To ensure that clinicians and researchers are equipped with sound measures to meet the mental health needs of this vulnerable population, further research to establish resources is needed.PMID:34019770 | DOI:10.1044/2021_JSLHR-20-00455 (Source: Journal of speech, language, and hearing research : JSLHR)

Practice Mediates Bidirectional Dual-Task Interference When Performing a Novel Sequential Nonword Repetition Task
Conclusion Data from the current investigation suggest that the amount of initial practice mediates the degree of dual-task interference observed when a novel speech production task is performed with an attention-demanding Visuomotor Pursuit Task.

Word Recognition and Word Prediction in Preschoolers With (a Suspicion of) a Developmental Language Disorder: Evidence From Eye Tracking
Conclusions While the groups' word recognition abilities looked similar, and only differed in processing speed and dwell time, the DLD group showed atypical verb-based prediction behavior. This may be due to limitations in their processing capacity and/or their linguistic knowledge, in particular of verb argument structure.PMID:34019773 | DOI:10.1044/2021_JSLHR-20-00227 (Source: Journal of speech, language, and hearing research : JSLHR)

Conducting a Virtual Study With Special Considerations for Working With Persons With Aphasia
Conclusions We provide a practical methodology for conducting a multitimepoint study, with considerations for PWA, adding to the body of research on telehealth in clinical populations. Future studies should continue to evaluate telemethodology, which may be core for diversifying studies, improving study retention, and enrolling larger sample sizes.
