Auditory perception & biofeedback for /ɹ/ (Preston et al., 2020)

Jonathan L. Preston, Elaine R. Hitchcock & Megan C. Leece
Purpose: This study evaluated whether outcomes from treatment, which includes ultrasound visual feedback (UVF), would be more or less effective when combined with auditory perception training for children with residual /ɹ/ errors.Method: Children ages 8–16 years with /ɹ/ distortions participated in speech therapy that included real-time UVF of the tongue. Thirty-eight participants were randomized to speech therapy conditions that included a primary focus on articulation using UVF or a condition that included auditory perceptual training...

How does our voice change as we age? (Rojas et al., 2020)

Sandra Rojas, Elaina Kefalianos & ADAM VOGEL
Purpose: Approximately 30% of adults over the age of 50 years present with altered vocal function. Our understanding of how these changes manifest acoustically and perceptually is derived from relatively modest-sized studies using a diversity of tools. Voice changes can arise from the onset of disease or disorder, but also age-related physiological changes, which may not reflect pathology as such. Here, we bring together data on acoustic, perceptual, and instrumental assessments (electroglottography), with the aim...

We calculated a d...

Narrative Assessment Protocol-2 (Bowles et al., 2020)

Ryan P. Bowles, Laura M. Justice, Kiren S. Khan, Shayne B. Piasta, Lori E. Skibbe & Tricia D. Foster
Purpose: Narrative skill, a child’s ability to create a temporally sequenced account of an experience or event, is considered an important domain of children’s language development. Narrative skill is strongly predictive of later language and literacy and is emphasized in curricula and educational standards. However, the need to transcribe a child’s narrative and the lack of psychometrically justified scoring methods have precluded broad consideration of narrative skill among practitioners. We describe the development and validation...

Phonetic contrasts in Cantonese tone acquisition (Mok et al., 2020)

Peggy Pik Ki Mok, Vivian Guo Li & Holly Sze Ho Fung
Purpose: Previous studies showed both early and late acquisition of Cantonese tones based on transcription data using different criteria, but very little acoustic data were reported. Our study examined Cantonese tone acquisition using both transcription and acoustic data, illustrating the early and protracted aspects of Cantonese tone acquisition.Method: One hundred fifty-nine Cantonese-speaking children aged between 2;1 and 6;0 (years;months) and 10 reference speakers participated in a tone production experiment based on picture naming. Natural production...

Deliberate supervision (Kleinhans et al., 2020)

Kelly Kleinhans, Christina Brock, Lauren Bland & Bethany Berry
Purpose: Clinical supervisors play a fundamental role inenabling students to transform knowledge into clinicalskills. The 2020 changes to Speech-Language PathologyCertification Standards will require speech-languagepathologists, who want to serve as clinical supervisorsof applicants for certification, to complete a minimum of9 months of practice experience postcertification and 2 hrof professional development in the professional practicedomain of supervision postcertification prior to overseeinga student in a clinical supervisor capacity.
Conclusion: This article describes a framework for clinicalsupervisors of graduate students...

Parents’ perspectives on integrating AAC into life (O’Neill & Wilkinson, 2020)

Tara O’Neill & Krista M. Wilkinson
Purpose: To ensure long-term adoption and use of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) technologies, they must be designed to support children to participate within everyday activities and routines that are prioritized by families. The aim of this study was to gain parent perspectives on how AAC technologies were integrated into everyday life.Method: Nine parents of children with cerebral palsy who used AAC technologies participated in semistructured interviews to provide their perspectives on how AAC technologies...
