Prevalence and Identification of Communication Disorders in Japan, Guatemala, & Global Contexts
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
This SIG 17 activity focuses on the prevalence and identification of communication
disorders in Japan, Guatemala, and global contexts. The first study conducted in Japan
examines the prediction of special educational needs in children who stutter using a
screening test for three neurodevelopmental disorders (specific learning disorder,
attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and autism spectrum disorder). The second study
explores clinical practices for speech sound disorders in Guatemala, particularly the use
of nonspeech oral motor exercises. Last, the third study provides insights into the
frequency of aphasia worldwide. By examining these diverse contexts, participants will
gain a comprehensive understanding of communication disorders and their identification
in different regions.
You will be able to:
- summarize clinical practices for speech sound disorders in Guatemala,
including the use of nonspeech oral motor exercises
- describe the global prevalence of aphasia after stroke, examining rates
across various countries and income levels
- explain the importance of cultural and contextual factors in the prevalence
and identification of communication disorders in diverse populations
