Developmental stuttering in children who are hard of hearing (Arenas et al., 2017)

Richard M. Arenas, Elizabeth A. Walker & Jacob J. Oleson
Purpose: A number of studies with large sample sizes have reported lower prevalence of stuttering in children with significant hearing loss compared to children without hearing loss. This study used a parent questionnaire to investigate the characteristics of stuttering (e.g., incidence, prevalence, and age of onset) in children who are hard of hearing (CHH).Method: Three hundred three parents of CHH who participated in the Outcomes of Children With Hearing Loss study (Moeller & Tomblin, 2015)...

A systematic review and meta-analysis of predictors of expressive-language outcomes among late talkers (Fisher, 2017)

Evelyn L. Fisher
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to explore the literature on predictors of outcomes among late talkers using systematic review and meta-analysis methods. We sought to answer the question: What factors predict preschool-age expressive-language outcomes among late-talking toddlers?Method: We entered carefully selected search terms into the following electronic databases: Communication & Mass Media Complete, ERIC, Medline, PsycEXTRA, Psychological and Behavioral Sciences, and PsycINFO. We conducted a separate, random-effects model meta-analysis for each individual predictor...

Children’s comprehension of object relative sentences (Ahmad Rusli & Montgomery, 2017)

Yazmin Ahmad Rusli & James W. Montgomery
Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine whether extant language (lexical) knowledge or domain-general working memory is the better predictor of comprehension of object relative sentences for children with typical development. We hypothesized that extant language knowledge, not domain-general working memory, is the better predictor.Method: Fifty-three children (ages 9–11 years) completed a word-level verbal working-memory task, indexing extant language (lexical) knowledge; an analog nonverbal working-memory task, representing domain-general working memory; and a hybrid...

Stimulus variability in reading a novel script (Adwan-Mansour & Bitan, 2017)

Jasmeen Adwan-Mansour & Tali Bitan
The benefit of stimulus variability for generalization of acquired skills and knowledge has been shown in motor, perceptual, and language learning but has rarely been studied in reading. We studied the effect of variable training in a novel language on reading trained and untrained words.
Sixty typical adults received 2 sessions of training in reading an artificial script. Participants were assigned to 1 of 3 groups: a variable training group practicing a large set of 24...

Teeth in 3D vocal tract models (Traser et al., 2017)

Louisa Traser, Peter Birkholz, Tabea Viktoria Flügge, Robert Kamberger, Michael Burdumy, Bernhard Richter, Jan Gerrit Korvink & Matthias Echternach
Purpose: Recently, efforts have been made to investigate the vocal tract using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Due to technical limitations, teeth were omitted in many previous studies on vocal tract acoustics. However, the knowledge of how teeth influence vocal tract acoustics might be important in order to estimate the necessity of implementing teeth in vocal tract models. The aim of this study was therefore to estimate the effect of teeth on vocal tract acoustics.Method: The...

Larry E. Humes, Sara E. Rogers, Tera M. Quigley, Anna K. Main, Dana L. Kinney & Christine Herring
Objectives: The objectives of this study were to determine efficacy of hearing aids in older adults using audiology best practices, to evaluate the efficacy of an alternative over-the-counter (OTC) intervention, and to examine the influence of purchase price on outcomes for both service-delivery models.Design: The design of this study was a single-site, prospective, double-blind placebo-controlled randomized trial with three parallel branches: (a) audiology best practices (AB), (b) consumer decides OTC model (CD), and (c) placebo...

Inner speech and overt speech (Stark et al., 2017)

Brielle C. Stark, Sharon Geva & Elizabeth A. Warburton
Preserved inner speech alongside relatively poor overt speech has been documented in some persons with aphasia (PWA), but the relationship of overt speech with inner speech is still largely unclear, as few studies have directly investigated these factors. The present study investigates the relationship of preserved inner speech in aphasia with selected measures of language and cognition.
Supplemental Material S1. Participant biographic demographics.
Supplemental Material S2. Percentage correct from inner speech and overt speech examination for all...

Dimensionality of oral language skills (Lonigan & Milburn, 2017)

Christopher J. Lonigan & Trelani F. Milburn
Language is a multidimensional construct from prior to the beginning of formal schooling to near the end of elementary school. The primary goals of this study were to identify the dimensionality of language and to determine whether this dimensionality was consistent in children with typical language development from preschool through 5th grade.
Supplemental Material S1. Description of measures.
Supplemental Material S2. Raw scores on language measures by grade group.
Supplemental Material S3. Correlations between age-standardized scores by grade...

Ultrasound biofeedback sample videos and practice data (Preston et al., 2017)

Jonathan L. Preston, Megan C. Leece, Kerry McNamara & Edwin Maas
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of practice variability, through prosodic variation during speech sound training, in biofeedback treatment for children with childhood apraxia of speech. It was hypothesized that variable practice would facilitate speech sound learning.
Supplemental Material S1. Sample video of prepractice. Prepractice included verbal and visual instruction to help the participant understand what was required for a correct production of the target movements.

Sub-analyses of the shortened nonword repetition task (NWR-S) compared with the nonword repetition task (NWR) per study group: children with specific language impairment (SLI), reading impairment (RI), both SLI and RI, and two control groups (le Clercq et al., 2017)

Carlijn M. P. Le Clercq, Marc P. Van Der Schroeff, Judith E. Rispens, Liesbet Ruytjens, André Goedegebure, Gijs Van Ingen & Marie-Christine Franken
"Purpose: The purpose of this research note was to validate a simplified version of the Dutch nonword repetition task (NWR; Rispens & Baker, 2012). The NWR was shortened and scoring was transformed to correct/incorrect nonwords, resulting in the shortened NWR (NWR-S).Method: NWR-S and NWR performance were compared in the previously published data set of Rispens and Baker (2012; N = 88), who compared NWR performance in 5 participant groups: specific language impairment (SLI), reading impairment...

Sample script for explicit word learning teaching trial (Kelley, 2017)

Elizabeth Spencer Kelley
"The explicit word learning measure was designed to examine the word learning of preschool children after brief, explicit teaching of novel words as an indication of how children might respond in instructional settings. Key components of evidence-based explicit vocabulary instruction were incorporated into brief lessons for each word. A sample script of a teaching trial is provided here."
