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 ...

Acquired apraxia of speech (AOS) typically occurs alongside aphasia. Clinicians are often challenged with questions such as, "What should I work on first, and why/how?" and "How can I deliver intensive therapy in todays healthcare system?" While there are a number of treatment approaches available for AOS, there are very few large-scale investigations of treatment efficacy to inform practice and limited studies that tackle the issues around intensity and concomitant disorders. This course summarizes the pros, cons, and similarities of impairment-based approaches to treatment for individuals with AOS plus aphasia. The outcomes from our latest Academy of Neurologic Communication Disorders and Sciences systematic review on treatment for AOS will be discussed along with more recent work. The course will provide demonstrations and detailed discussion of the rationale and procedures for those approaches with the strongest evidence to support clinical use, so that participants can immediately begin ...

We are over-planners. For example, our first meetings were broken down into timed segments (10 minutes for introductions, 10 minutes for a presentation and so on). But we quickly discovered that this system was too restrictive and that letting the group choose the flow of the meetings strengthened the rapport between the members and us. Flexibility also provided an excellent way for members to share their wisdom and support with one another. Now, we follow a loose schedule-snacks and catching up with one another, a presentation or discussion about the evenings topic, and a wrap-up that includes suggestions for future topics ...

PurposeThe purpose of this study was to conduct the initial psychometric analyses of the Communicative Participation Item Bank-a new self-report instrument designed to measure the extent to which communication disorders interfere with communicative participation. This item bank is intended for community-dwelling adults across a range of communication disorders.. MethodA set of 141 candidate items was administered to 208 adults with spasmodic dysphonia. Participants rated the extent to which their condition interfered with participation in various speaking communication situations. Questionnaires were administered online or in a paper version per participant preference. Participants also completed the Voice Handicap Index (B. H. Jacobson et al., 1997) and a demographic questionnaire. Rasch analyses were conducted using Winsteps software (J. M. Linacre, 1991).. ResultsThe results show that items functioned better when the 5-category response format was recoded to a 4-category format. After ...
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. A single reviewer will conduct a search and an initial screen of titles and abstracts from five electronic databases (MEDLINE, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature [CINAHL],

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 ...

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..

Loyolas speech-language pathology curriculum includes clinical training in the assessment and treatment of infants, children, and adults with communication disorders.
Five children with DS, with the same cognitive level, participated in this study. Longitudinal follow-up of twelve months of speech-language therapy with AAC use was undertaken. A lexical evaluation was done at the beginning and the end of this follow-up. Correct responses in the lexical evaluation were increased, but not necessarily in the spoken modality. The comparisons showed significant results in use of substitutions processes, and to no-answers ...
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..

Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) is an important clinical intervention for many people with motor neurone disease (MND).. This information is for health and social care professionals working with people with MND. It provides suggestions for best practice in AAC provision, and where to find more information.. There is a wide variety of AAC devices and software available, with new products and applications being developed all the time. Because people with MND are unique, it is important to start with their communication needs and wishes first, before considering which AAC system will be most helpful.. A trial of a device before purchase is highly recommended. This can help to establish how effective it is for a person, and can provide evidence for funding. Many suppliers will offer trials of equipment, sometimes for a small fee. ...
When Division 10 and Division 12, Augmentative and Alternative Communication decided to develop a joint newsletter issue, we both wondered, "What is the connection between these two constituency groups?" What became apparent to both of us was that all training programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders are facing the challenge of meeting the new ASHA standards and developing course content and clinical experiences that provide students the knowledge and skills across the "Big 9" content areas. In addition to this challenge, CSD programs are in the process of developing and implementing the Knowledge and Skills Acquisition (KASA) form for tracking students learning outcomes across all Big 9 areas. As we planned and developed this joint issue, with the guidance and input of faculty with expertise in AAC throughout the U.S., the connections between our Special Interest Divisions became clear. Faculty members in CSD programs need resources, information, and options to implement AAC training. ...
Electronic Portfolios for Clinicians Several universities across the country are requiring students to create their own electronic portfolios. These collections of videos, sounds, graphics, text, pictures, and music demonstrate student capabilities. They may include the clinician conducting treatment with different types of clients (e.g., stroke patients, school-age children, and adolescents), administering formal tests, or using augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices. Documents such as resumes, professional memberships, activities, honors, awards, diagnostic reports, therapy projects, and skill summaries also may be included. Additional materials can be appended to the portfolios over time. Work samples visually demonstrate skills and accomplishments and document progress in acquiring skills and competencies needed to be a successful clinician. This benefits both faculty and students. Materials can be used or adapted to other applications such as skill assessment, job ...
At NCIE, I saw a lot about AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication.) Im on a Neurodiversity Committee at my college. One of the things I told my committee (It really is mine: Im not officially in charge, but no one really argues with me. They sometimes are a bit "OK, how do we do that?" but thats about as much as I get) was that its not just autistic people who are specifically Aspergers going to college. Its not just people who get called "high functioning" going to college. (Functioning labels are made of fail anyways. Getting into specific support needs, though, is super-useful because it lets people get what help they need.) There are going to be nonspeaking Autistic people with significant support needs wanting to go to typical 4-year programs and access the general curriculum. Its estimated that 20 or fewer nonspeaking autistic people have earned college degrees to date (but thats not zero!) and there will be more.

Along with collaborators at Southern Methodist University, Sasson is conducting new research at the UT Dallas Callier Center for Communication Disorders that compares the basis for social interaction impairments between adults with ASD and adults with schizophrenia. He is attempting to understand the mechanisms that underlie their social limitations.. "Because the two disorders are different in so many ways, it is likely that the basis for their social impairments differs as well," he said. "Understanding these differences will be key for developing effective treatments. What works well for individuals with ASD might be very different than those with schizophrenia.". In previous research, Sasson and his colleagues used eye-tracking technology and found that neither adults with ASD nor adults with schizophrenia look at social information in the same way as those without either disorder. His colleagues also found that parts of the brain that process social information are underactive in those with ...

Tinnitus. Information from the National Institute for Deafness and Communication Disorders. What is tinnitus? Commonly described as a ringing in the ears, but it also can sound like roaring, clicking, hissing, or buzzing. It may be soft or loud, high pitched or low pitched. You might hear it in either one or both ears.. Who experiences it? In the past year experts estimate that 22.7 million adult Americans experienced tinnitus for more than three months, which is roughly 10 percent of the adult population of the United States.. Is tinnitus an illness or a symptom? Tinnitus is a symptom. Sometimes the first sign of hearing loss in older people. It also can be a side effect of medications. More than 200 drugs are known to cause tinnitus when you start or stop taking them. Ongoing exposure to noise damages tiny sensory hair cells in the inner ear that help transmit sound to the brain. This is called noise-induced hearing loss, another cause of tinnitus. Tinnitus is one of the most common ...

Roundabout homolog 1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the ROBO1 gene. Bilateral symmetric nervous systems have special midline structures that establish a partition between the two mirror image halves. Some axons project toward and across the midline in response to long-range chemoattractants emanating from the midline]. In Drosophila, the roundabout gene, a member of the immunoglobulin gene superfamily, encodes an integral membrane protein that is both an axon guidance receptor and a cell adhesion receptor. This receptor is involved in the decision by axons to cross the central nervous system midline. The protein encoded by this gene is structurally similar to the Drosophila roundabout protein. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. ROBO1 was implicated in communication disorder based on a Finnish pedigree with severe dyslexia. Analyses revealed a translocation had occurred disrupting ROBO1. Study of the phonological memory component of the ...

A number of analyses have been conducted on the ENNI normative data set in order to derive norms. Stories should be evaluated using both macrostructural and microstructural analyses in order to capture the full range of narrative skills. Macrostructural analyses focus on the overall content and organization of stories. Story Grammar is a way to evaluate the macrostructure of stories. In contrast, microstructure approaches focus on relationships among parts of stories (Hughes, McGillivray & Schmidek, 1997). These types of measures thus each contribute to our overall analysis of story quality; no one measure appears to capture everything that contributes to perceived story quality (McCabe & Peterson, 1984). In order to evaluate story quality, attention must be given to both the macrostructure and microstructure of stories.. Besides being examples of stories and thus extended language use, the ENNI samples are also language samples and thus can be analysed as any other language samples. Thus we ...
