Evidence-based systematic review: Oropharyngeal dysphagia behavioral treatments. Part I--background and methodology. (1/1)

Evidence-based systematic reviews (EBSRs), in conjunction with clinical expertise and client values, are invaluable tools for speech-language pathologists and audiologists. This article provides an overview of the levels-of-evidence scheme used by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) to conduct systematic reviews. The goal of ASHA reviews is to provide a tool to help clinicians determine the best treatment course for their clients. We present a collaborative project between ASHA's National Center for Evidence-based Practice in Communication Disorders and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) that examined seven behavioral swallowing treatments for disordered and nondisordered populations. The methodology used in a series of reviews conducted by ASHA and the VA will be discussed, including the development of clinical questions, search parameters, inclusion/exclusion criteria, and literature search results. Findings from the series of reviews as well as the practical applications of EBSRs will be reported in subsequent articles in this series.  (+info)

Children with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) present with significant speech production deficits, the effects of which often persist well into late childhood (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2007; Lewis, Freebairn, Hansen, Iyengar, & Taylor, 2004). Debate has historically surrounded whether the features of CAS are the result of an impairment in linguistic or speech motor systems, or both (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2007). Most research, however, has failed to explicitly consider a developmental perspective of the disorder, arguably limiting the associated interpretations that often (implicitly) assume an established underlying system (Maassen, 2002). One of the key tenets of such a developmental perspective is the possibility of an original core deficit in one system, with negative consequences for aspects of the system that subsequently develop.A mixed-methodology paradigm was employed in the present research in order to explore the core deficit in CAS. ...

As Americans take to the streets to protest police brutality, they may face ear-blasting sound cannons that can harm their hearing.. Sound cannons, or long-range acoustic devices (LRADs), were developed for the military, and now some police departments use them as weapons in crowd control. The sound they emit is greater than that of a jet engine and surpasses the average threshold for pain, warns the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).. LRADs have been and can be easily set at extremely high decibel levels that can cause serious lasting harm, ASHA said in a news release.. That level of sound can cause permanent hearing loss, migraine and vestibular and other auditory symptoms. Children, the elderly and others with hearing problems can be at increased risk, the association warned.. ASHA is urging safer use of sound cannons by police and law enforcement. The association noted that some cities are curbing their use; one decided to stop using them while another city developed a ...

Language delays can show as early as 18 months of age. ASD can be detected before age 3, and in some cases, as early as 10-12 months of age. Speech therapy should begin early because this is the time when it can have the greatest impact. Intensive and individualized treatment can decrease social communication disabilities that can lead to disabling isolation.. Two out of three preschoolers with autism can improve their communication skills and grasp of spoken language when there is early identification and intervention.

Speech disorders occur when a person is unable to produce speech sounds correctly or fluently or has problems with their voice or resonance. Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults. (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association). The dystonias that most often impact speech and that benefit from speech therapy are Spasmodic/Laryngeal Dystonia (throat/vocal), Cranial Dystonia impacting the muscles around the mouth/cheeks or those involving swallowing, Dystonic Cerebral Palsy in children that results in issues with communication, saliva production, or swallowing, and Generalized Dystonia impacting the muscles of the face or neck. SLPs may work with patients to develop improved pitch and loudness control, phrasing and consistency of sound production, and breath control for verbal communication. They may also assist in developing non-verbal ...

The research design adopted for this study was Quasi-experimental, pre-test post-test control group design. Stratified random sampling was adopted to choose the sample. The population was divided into three strata based on the level of Intelligent Quotient (I.Q) such as mild, moderate and severe mental retardation. There was only one sample in the first strata and it was excluded from the study (mild). The second strata consist of 14 participants (moderate) and third strata consist of 2 participants (severe). On lottery method from each stratum, equal numbers of samples (8) were alternatively allocated to experimental and control group respectively. The developmental level of mentally challenged children was assessed using Developmental Delay Preschool Scale (American speech-language-hearing association 1983).

Medicare Keeps the Audiology Osseointegrated Implant as Benefit Successful advocacy efforts from ASHA and other audiology stakeholders resulted in a significant win for the audiology community. In July, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) determined to reclassify osseointegrated implants as hearing aids and effectively disqualified the prosthetic devices from Medicare coverage. CMS released the final Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) rule for 2015, and note that they were changing their position due to the requests of several commenters for reconsideration.. Subsequently, CMS has finalized the following:. (1) Scope. The scope of the hearing aid exclusion encompasses all types of air conduction hearing aids that provide acoustic energy to the cochlea via stimulation of the tympanic membrane with amplified sound and bone conduction hearing aids that provide mechanical stimulation of the cochlea via stimulation of the scalp with amplified ...

Tricyclic anti-depressants and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors have been shown to be effective in IBS patients of all subtypes. The trials generally are of good quality but the limited number of patients included in trials implies that further evidence could change the confidence in the estimate of effect and therefore the quality of evidence was graded as moderate. -- Non-absorbable antibiotics are effective, particularly in diarrhea-predominant IBS. --- The selective C-2 chloride channel activator, lubiprostone, is efficacious in constipation-predominant IBS with a moderate quality of evidence. -- Psychological therapies also may provide benefit to IBS patients although the quality of evidence is poor. -- While available trials of unique Chinese herbal mixtures appeared to show a benefit in IBS, it is not possible to combine these studies into a meaningful meta-analysis. Overall, any benefit of Chinese herbal therapy in IBS continues to be potentially confounded by the variable ...

Not even Stephen Hawking uses the kind of sci-fi communication interface that University of Kansas neuroscientist Jonathan Brumberg is developing. Hawking uses a cheek muscle to control his voice device. But Brumberg wants to give individuals with no voluntary movement at all the ability to control a communication device via a brain-computer (BCI) interface-with their thoughts alone. And what would set this apart from other speech BCIs is that it would allow an individual to speak through a speech synthesizer in real time.. BCIs are increasingly being used in scientific research and therapeutic interventions for individuals with ALS, like Hawking, as well as for those with locked-in syndrome due to brain stem stroke or other conditions, said Brumberg, assistant professor of speech-language-hearing.. Brumberg is testing a prototype BCI that can decode an individuals brain waves recorded via a non-invasive 60-channel electroencephalography cap into sound frequencies for control of a vowel ...
