Speech Science Views and News
Format(s): SIG Perspectives
This activity presents a diverse perspective, including four different speech science articles focused on a variety of topics. Kimball and Sayce discuss the pros and cons of research using behavior and functional assessment and treatment in the areas of speech science and voice, specifically their limitation in outlining etiology or explaining treatment resistance. They also provide an overview of genetic research approaches as a possible path forward to develop additional evidence-based treatment approaches. Neel reviews the production and perception of extralinguistic information regarding sex/gender, sexual orientation, age, non-native accent, regional and social dialect, and race and ethnicity. The article explores the literature in the above areas reviewing acoustical features and common misperceptions, concluding with instructional activities to enhance student awareness of indexical characteristics. McAllister et al. studied the effects of biofeedback for residual rhotic errors in a preliminary case series. Participants were five native English speakers who had not yet generalized rhotic production. Treatment consisted of either electropalatographic or visual-acoustic biofeedback using the Challenge Point Program software. Although participant responses to treatment were variable, the median effect size tended to exceed the minimum value considered clinically significant. Gritsyk et al. examined three measures to determine which best predicted change in production accuracy during a vowel learning task. Using 20 female college students, researchers administered three tasks: an oral stereognosis task, a bite block task using auditory making, and a new phonetic awareness task. The bite block task with auditory masking, measuring proprioceptive awareness, was the only task significantly related to performance in speech learning.

Assessment and Treatment of Social Language Deficits in School-Aged Students
Format(s): SIG Perspectives
This Perspectives activity focuses on the assessment and treatment of school age students with social language deficits. The first article defines three different conversational profiles for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)and discusses intervention strategies appropriate for students within each of the profiles. The second article analyzes the benefit of using analog tasks (i.e., tasks that represent real-life social tasks) with toddlers through adolescents to evaluate social communication abilities and guide intervention. The third article aims to provide support for best practices in assessing students with social communication deficits, as determined by results of a survey of speech-language pathologists’ current methods and approaches. The final article examines how effective commercially available standardized tests are for evaluating the social and pragmatic language deficits of students with social pragmatic communication disorder within and separate from ASD.

Evidence-Based Practices for Treating Language Disorders in Dual Language Learners
Format(s): Journal (Online)
SLPs are working with an increasing number of children and families who identify as bilingual, multilingual, or dual language learners (DLLs). Researchers are exploring strategies that are most effective for treating DLLs with language disorders and are also evaluating cultural differences related to family expectations in order to improve the validity of interventions. This journal self-study explores how family expectations can impact the effectiveness of interventions, how expectations may vary across cultures, and what SLP interventions are considered evidence-based when working with DLLs and culturally and linguistically diverse families. These articles are from a two-part forum – Innovations in Clinical Practice for Dual Language Learners – published in the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology.

Dysphagia & Auditory Matters in Geriatric Speech-Language Pathology
Format(s): SIG Perspectives
One dysphagia article is contained within, which contains significant emphasis on person-centered care and quality of life for the person with a swallowing disorder. Fazakerly and Nativ aim to assess the utility of thickened liquids for patients with oropharyngeal dysphagia. The authors feel that thickening of liquids may pose serious implications and potential consequences that should not be discounted, and they posit that careful patient selection is recommended as well as balancing both a patient’s physical welfare and quality of life. Two auditory articles are also contained within, both with significant emphasis on the intersection of cognition and hearing impairment. Gottschalk and Olson examine the importance of audiologists’ familiarity with cognitive impairment and cognitive screening practices so that they can assist in identifying cognitive impairment when assessing and treating hearing impairment. Gurevich et al. look at the reverse of the former article: the importance of hearing screenings for individuals who are diagnosed with dementia.
