Communication disturbances in relatives beyond the age of risk for schizophrenia and their associations with symptoms in patients. (1/112)

This article provides a detailed examination of subclinical disturbances in the natural speech of healthy relatives beyond the age of risk for schizophrenia. Speech samples from 43 stable schizophrenia outpatients, 42 nonschizophrenia parents of patients (pairs only), and 23 control subjects matched to the parents were analyzed for frequencies of six specific types of communication failures. The parents had higher overall communication disturbance ratings than the control subjects. The specific types of failures that occurred more frequently were unclarities caused by (1) language structural breakdown, (2) use of vague, overinclusive words, and (3) use of words with ambiguous meanings. In intrafamilial analyses, higher levels of communication disturbance in parents were associated with greater severity of illness in their patient offspring. These results support the idea that communication disturbances may be one manifestation of a stable genetic vulnerability to schizophrenia. The nature of the failures identified suggests the possible involvement of weaknesses in specific areas of cognitive functioning.  (+info)

Affective-prosodic deficits in schizophrenia: comparison to patients with brain damage and relation to schizophrenic symptoms [corrected]. (2/112)

OBJECTIVE: Although affective prosody seems to be a dominant and lateralised communication function of the right hemisphere, focal lesions of either hemisphere may cause problems with its modulation. When impairment occurs after brain damage, the profiles of affective-prosodic disturbances differ depending on the hemisphere injured. Patients with left brain damage (LBD) improve their performance whereas patients with right brain damage (RBD) do not when the verbal-articulatory demands of the test stimuli are reduced systematically. One of the major arguments for a right hemispheric contribution to schizophrenia has been the documentation of affective prosodic deficits under the assumption that these abnormalities reflect right hemispheric dysfunction. Thus, an essential question to resolve is whether the profile of affective prosodic disturbances in schizophrenia is similar to LBD or RBD, or represents a unique variation. METHODS: Data were collected from four subject groups: 45 chronic, medication-stabilised, schizophrenic patients, 10 patients with focal LBD, nine patients with focal RBD, and 19 controls. All groups were tested on the aprosodia battery, which uses stimuli having incrementally reduced verbal-articulatory demands. Schizophrenic and aphasic symptoms were evaluated using standard assessment tools. RESULTS: For patients with impaired performance on the aprosodia battery, schizophrenic patients were statistically identical to patients with RBD and robustly different from those with LBD. Thirty eight schizophrenic patients (84.4%) were found to have some type of affective prosodic deficit with the predominant pattern indicating, at minimum, right posterior sylvian dysfunction (57.8%). When schizophrenic symptoms and aprosodic deficits were examined using a principal component analysis, affective comprehension and repetition loaded uniquely as separate factors. CONCLUSIONS: The profile of affective-prosodic deficits found in impaired schizophrenic patients is characteristic of RBD, supporting the concept that schizophrenia is a bihemispheric disease process. These deficits may also represent cardinal symptoms of schizophrenia as they are highly prevalent and, except for spontaneous affective prosody, are not associated statistically with traditional clusters of schizophrenic symptoms.  (+info)

Reinforcement schedule thinning following treatment with functional communication training. (3/112)

We evaluated four methods for increasing the practicality of functional communication training (FCT) by decreasing the frequency of reinforcement for alternative behavior. Three participants whose problem behaviors were maintained by positive reinforcement were treated successfully with FCT in which reinforcement for alternative behavior was initially delivered on fixed-ratio (FR) 1 schedules. One participant was then exposed to increasing delays to reinforcement under FR 1, a graduated fixed-interval (FI) schedule, and a graduated multiple-schedule arrangement in which signaled periods of reinforcement and extinction were alternated. Results showed that (a) increasing delays resulted in extinction of the alternative behavior, (b) the FI schedule produced undesirably high rates of the alternative behavior, and (c) the multiple schedule resulted in moderate and stable levels of the alternative behavior as the duration of the extinction component was increased. The other 2 participants were exposed to graduated mixed-schedule (unsignaled alternation between reinforcement and extinction components) and multiple-schedule (signaled alternation between reinforcement and extinction components) arrangements in which the durations of the reinforcement and extinction components were modified. Results obtained for these 2 participants indicated that the use of discriminative stimuli in the multiple schedule facilitated reinforcement schedule thinning. Upon completion of treatment, problem behavior remained low (or at zero), whereas alternative behavior was maintained as well as differentiated during a multiple-schedule arrangement consisting of a 4-min extinction period followed by a 1-min reinforcement period.  (+info)

Response efficiency during functional communication training: effects of effort on response allocation. (4/112)

An analogue functional analysis revealed that the problem behavior of a young child with developmental delays was maintained by positive reinforcement. A concurrent-schedule procedure was then used to vary the amount of effort required to emit mands. Results suggested that response effort can be an important variable when developing effective functional communication training programs.  (+info)

Brief report: behaviors identified by caregivers to detect pain in noncommunicating children. (5/112)

OBJECTIVE: To develop an observational measure, based on caregiver reports, to assess chronic pain in children with significant cognitive impairment who are unable to communicate verbally. The issue of whether these children share a core set of cues to express pain was investigated. METHODS: Specific pain cues were elicited during detailed interviews with 29 female caregivers of noncommunicating children. Pain cues were categorized by a two-stage Delphi process and cues indicating severe and definite pain identified. RESULTS: Six cues from five different categories were used by 90% of caregivers to identify definite or severe pain in their child. CONCLUSIONS: Although the specific expression of pain may be very individual, there is a shared set of core pain cues. The relationship between these cues and evidence of pain and distress is discussed.  (+info)

Cognitive profiles and social-communicative functioning in children with autism spectrum disorder. (6/112)

BACKGROUND: Whether there is an unusual degree of unevenness in the cognitive abilities of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and whether different cognitive profiles among children with ASD might index etiologically significant subgroups are questions of continued debate in autism research. METHOD: The Differential Ability Scales (DAS) and the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) were used to examine profiles of verbal and nonverbal abilities and their relationship to autistic symptomatology in 120 relatively high-functioning children with ADI-confirmed diagnoses of autism. RESULTS: Discrepancies between verbal and nonverbal ability scores occurred at a significantly higher rate than in the DAS normative sample (30%) in both a younger group of 73 children (56%) with a mean age of 5;5 and an older group of 47 children (62%) with a mean age of 8;11. Discrepancies were mainly in favor of nonverbal ability in the younger group, but occurred equally in favor of verbal and nonverbal abilities in the older group. Comparison of the two age groups suggested a growing dissociation between verbal and nonverbal (and particularly visual processing) skills with age. In the older group, children with discrepantly higher nonverbal abilities demonstrated significantly greater impairment in social functioning, as measured on the ADOS, independent of absolute level of verbal and overall ability. CONCLUSIONS: These findings demonstrate a high rate of uneven cognitive development in children with ASD. Indications of a dissociation between verbal and visual-perceptual skills among the older children, and the specific association of discrepantly high nonverbal skills with increased social symptoms suggest that the nonverbal > verbal profile may index an etiologically significant subtype of autism.  (+info)

ABR and auditory P300 findings in children with ADHD. (7/112)

Auditory processing disorders (APD), also referred as central auditory processing disorders (CAPD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorders (ADHD) have become popular diagnostic entities for school age children. It has been demonstrated a high incidence of comorbid ADHD with communication disorders and auditory processing disorder. The aim of this study was to investigate ABR and P300 auditory evoked potentials in children with ADHD, in a double-blind study. Twenty-one children, ages between 7 and 10 years, with a primary diagnosis of ADHD, participated in this experiment. Results showed that all children had normal ABR with normal latency for wave V. Results also showed that among 42 ears combined 52.38% did not have P300. For the medicated subjects we observed that among 28 ears, 42.85% did not have P300 and for the non-medicated 71.43% (N = 14 ears) did not have P300. Our results suggest that the medicated subjects had more presence of P300 (57.15%) than the non-medicated group (28.57%), though the absence of these potentials were high among the group--52.38%.  (+info)

Using the picture exchange communication system (PECS) with children with autism: assessment of PECS acquisition, speech, social-communicative behavior, and problem behavior. (8/112)

The picture exchange communication system (PECS) is an augmentative communication system frequently used with children with autism (Bondy & Frost, 1994; Siegel, 2000; Yamall, 2000). Despite its common clinical use, no well-controlled empirical investigations have been conducted to test the effectiveness of PECS. Using a multiple baseline design, the present study examined the acquisition of PECS with 3 children with autism. In addition, the study examined the effects of PECS training on the emergence of speech in play and academic settings. Ancillary measures of social-communicative behaviors and problem behaviors were recorded. Results indicated that all 3 children met the learning criterion for PECS and showed concomitant increases in verbal speech. Ancillary gains were associated with increases in social-communicative behaviors and decreases in problem behaviors. The results are discussed in terms of the provision of empirical support for PECS as well as the concomitant positive side effects of its use.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Amygdala Enlargement in Toddlers with Autism Related to Severity of Social and Communication Impairments. AU - Schumann, Cynthia. AU - Barnes, Cynthia Carter. AU - Lord, Catherine. AU - Courchesne, Eric. PY - 2009/11/15. Y1 - 2009/11/15. N2 - Background: Autism is a heterogeneous neurodevelopmental disorder of unknown etiology. The amygdala has long been a site of intense interest in the search for neuropathology in autism, given its role in emotional and social behavior. An interesting hypothesis has emerged that the amygdala undergoes an abnormal developmental trajectory with a period of early overgrowth in autism; however this finding has not been well established at young ages nor analyzed with boys and girls independently. Methods: We measured amygdala volumes on magnetic resonance imaging scans from 89 toddlers at 1-5 years of age (mean = 3 years). Each child returned at ∼5 years of age for final clinical evaluation. Results: Toddlers who later received a confirmed autism ...

Mechanically ventilated patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) experience profound communication impairment, placing them at risk for poor physical and psychological outcomes. Patient communication strategies such as augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and voice restorative devices are recommended to facilitate communication. These strategies, however, are inconsistently adopted in ICU practice signaling utilization barriers. Our objective is to map and synthesize the current evidence-base for stakeholder-reported barriers and facilitators to patient communication strategy utilization for adults with an advanced airway in the ICU. We will use Arskey and OMalleys recommended methods to conduct a scoping review using a rapid review framework to streamline the process.

Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) is an umbrella term that encompasses the communication methods used to supplement or replace speech or writing for those with impairments in the production or comprehension of spoken or written language. AAC is used by those with a wide range of speech and language impairments, including congenital impairments such as cerebral palsy, intellectual impairment and autism, and acquired conditions such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and Parkinsons disease. AAC can be a permanent addition to a persons communication or a temporary aid. Modern use of AAC began in the 1950s with systems for those who had lost the ability to speak following surgical procedures. During the 1960s and 1970s, spurred by an increasing commitment in the West towards the inclusion of disabled individuals in mainstream society and developing the skills required for independence, the use of manual sign language and then graphic symbol communication grew greatly. It was not until ...

This study examined the effectiveness of an instructional program designed to teach grammar skills to individuals who communicated via augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). A single-subject, multiple probe across behaviors design was used to measure the effect of the instructional program on the acquisition and maintenance of the skills learned. Two adults with cerebral palsy participated in the study. The instructional program was used to teach 2 grammatical forms to each participant. Word order in adjective phrases and inversion of the auxiliary do in wh- questions was targeted for 1 participant; use of possessive pronouns and inclusion of to when using infinitives as modal verbs was targeted for the second participant. The instructional program was shown to be effective. Both participants learned to produce the grammatical forms taught. One participant maintained these skills for at least 2 months after the completion of instruction; the other participant required additional ...

Social Communication Therapy: Social communication therapy provides skills for conversation, relationship initiation, recognition and expression of emotions, recognition of body language, use and interpretation of figurative language, and other of the many skills necessary for successful interpersonal communication.. Key Age Groups Served: Age 5 years through adult. Characteristics of Disability: Social communication disorder is characterized by a persistent difficulty with verbal and nonverbal communication that cannot be explained by low cognitive ability. Symptoms include difficulty in the acquisition and use of spoken and written language as well as problems with inappropriate responses in conversation. The disorder limits effective communication, social relationships, academic achievement, or occupational performance. (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). A social communication disorder may be a distinct diagnosis or may occur within the context of other conditions, such as autism ...

The interventions below are designed specifically to increase social communication skills. Comic Strip Conversations-conversations between two or more people illustrated by simple drawings in a comic strip format. The drawings illustrate what people are saying and doing and what they might be thinking. The process of creating the comic strip slows the conversation down, allowing more time for an individual to understand the information being exchanged. Comic Strip Conversations can be used for conflict resolution, problem solving, communicating feelings and perspectives, and reflecting on something that happened (Gray, 1994). Score Skills Strategy-a social skills program that takes place in a cooperative small group and focuses on five social skills: (S) share ideas, (C) compliment others, (O) offer help or encouragement, (R) recommend changes nicely, and (E) exercise self-control (Vernon, Schumaker, & Deshler, 1996).

This glossary relates to some of the aspects of speech-language pathology with an an emphasis on childrens speech development and disorders.
I believe in the philosophy of learning by teaching: Hear one, see one, do one, teach one. Learners hear a concept, key word, or explanation of a therapy technique and then see the concept visually represented, the word defined, or the therapy technique demonstrated. Learners may independently illustrate the concept, write a sentence with the word, or perform the technique with a client. After following this sequence, learners then become teachers by sharing their knowledge with others.. My goal is to use real-world experiences to help students learn. Through case studies, videos, interviews, demonstrations, sample documentation, and practice students are given various channels to help with retention of information. I strive to create an environment where students are challenged, yet comfortable, and instilled with the desire to learn as much as they can about the field of speech-language pathology.. The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out ...

For people with conditions such as acquired brain injury (ABI), stroke or Parkinsons disease, speaking or writing can sometimes be difficult. Our clinic offers solutions to these communication challenges. Each individual is different, so we work to find solutions that work for a specific person. These may include alternative ways of communicating, such as relying on computers with adaptive software and hardware. People might use electronic devices that have artificial voice output or picture and word displays.. We make a comprehensive assessment of each persons needs and then look for innovative solutions. Sometimes its a matter of finding the right equipment. It may mean training and support, or help in getting funds from the Assistive Devices Program of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. ...

Dr. Noboru Hiroi, Ph.D. (PI) Social Communication in Genetic Mouse Models of Autism. Genetic risk factors do not necessarily result in autism and even when they do, severity varies widely among individuals. Given that early intervention modifies the severity of autism and that environmental factors are likely modifiers of outcome, this project will help establish how the interplay between genetic factors, early social communication, and neonatal maternal care determines the severity of autism-like behaviors via epigenetic mechanisms using three well-established mouse models of autism-associated genetic variants. The project has high translational value because it could provide mechanistic bases for symptomatic variability and lay the ground work for early therapeutic intervention. This project was funded for five years, starting August 1, 2017 through July 31, 2022 by the NIHs National Institute on Deafness and other Communication Disorders..
