Evaluating the effects of functional communication training in the presence and absence of establishing operations. (1/18)

We conducted functional analyses of aberrant behavior with 4 children with developmental disabilities. We then implemented functional communication training (FCT) by using different mands across two contexts, one in which the establishing operation (EO) that was relevant to the function of aberrant behavior was present and one in which the EO that was relevant to the function of aberrant behavior was absent. The mand used in the EO-present context served the same function as aberrant behavior, and the mand used in the EO-absent context served a different function than the one identified via the functional analysis. In addition, a free-play (control) condition was conducted for all children. Increases in relevant manding were observed in the EO-present context for 3 of the 4 participants. Decreases in aberrant behavior were achieved by the end of the treatment analysis for all 4 participants. Irrelevant mands were rarely observed in the EO-absent context for 3 of the 4 participants. Evaluating the effectiveness of FCT across different contexts allowed a further analysis of manding when the establishing operations were present or absent. The contributions of this study to the understanding of functional equivalence are also discussed.  (+info)

Assessment of a response bias for aggression over functionally equivalent appropriate behavior. (2/18)

We evaluated the effects of a dense (fixed-ratio 1) schedule of reinforcement for an 11-year-old boy's mands for toys while aggression produced the same toys on various schedules chosen on the basis of a progressive-ratio probe. Based on the probe session data, we accurately predicted that aggression would be more probable than mands when the schedules were equal or slightly discrepant, but that mands would be more probable when the schedule discrepancy was large.  (+info)

Differential use of vocal and gestural communication by chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) in response to the attentional status of a human (Homo sapiens). (3/18)

This study examined the communicative behavior of 49 captive chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes), particularly their use of vocalizations, manual gestures, and other auditory- or tactile-based behaviors as a means of gaining an inattentive audience's attention. A human (Homo sapiens) experimenter held a banana while oriented either toward or away from the chimpanzee. The chimpanzees' behavior was recorded for 60 s. Chimpanzees emitted vocalizations faster and were more likely to produce vocalizations as their 1st communicative behavior when a human was oriented away from them. Chimpanzees used manual gestures more frequently and faster when the human was oriented toward them. These results replicate the findings of earlier studies on chimpanzee gestural communication and provide new information about the intentional and functional use of their vocalizations.  (+info)

Nonword imitation by children with cochlear implants: consonant analyses. (4/18)

OBJECTIVES: To complete detailed linguistic analyses of archived recordings of pediatric cochlear implant users' imitations of nonwords; to gain insight into the children's developing phonological systems and the wide range of variability in nonword responses. DESIGN: Nonword repetition: repetition of 20 auditory-only English-sounding nonwords. SETTING: Central Institute for the Deaf "Education of the Deaf Child" research program, St Louis, Mo. PARTICIPANTS: Eighty-eight 8- to 10-year-old experienced pediatric cochlear implant users. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Several different consonant accuracy scores based on the linguistic structure (voicing, place, and manner of articulation) of the consonants being imitated; analysis of the errors produced for all consonants imitated incorrectly. RESULTS: Seventy-six children provided a response to at least 75% of the nonword stimuli. In these children's responses, 33% of the target consonants were imitated correctly, 25% of the target consonants were deleted, and substitutions were provided for 42% of the target consonants. The children tended to correctly reproduce target consonants with coronal place (which involve a mid-vocal tract constriction) more often than other consonants. Poorer performers tended to produce more deletions than the better performers, but their production errors tended to follow the same patterns as the better performers. CONCLUSIONS: Poorer performance on labial consonants suggests that scores were affected by the lack of visual cues such as lip closure. Oral communication users tended to perform better than total communication users, indicating that oral communication methods are beneficial to the development of pediatric cochlear implant users' phonological processing skills.  (+info)

Hearing mothers and their deaf children: the relationship between early, ongoing mode match and subsequent mental health functioning in adolescence. (5/18)

In the few studies that have been conducted, researchers have typically found that deaf adolescents have more mental health difficulties than their hearing peers and that, within the deaf groups, those who use spoken language have better mental health functioning than those who use sign language. This study investigated the hypotheses that mental health functioning in adolescence is related to an early and consistent mode match between mother and child rather than to the child's use of speech or sign itself. Using a large existing 15-year longitudinal database on children and adolescents with severe and profound deafness, 57 adolescents of hearing parents were identified for whom data on language experience (the child's and the mother's) and mental health functioning (from a culturally and linguistically adapted form of the Achenbach Youth Self Report) was available. Three groups were identified: auditory/oral (A/O), sign match (SM), and sign mismatch (SMM). As hypothesized, no significant difference in mental health functioning was found between the A/O and SM groups, but a significant difference was found favoring a combined A/O and SM group over the SMM group. These results support the notion of the importance of an early and consistent mode match between deaf children and hearing mothers, regardless of communication modality.  (+info)

The development of analogical reasoning in deaf children and their parents' communication mode. (6/18)

The purpose of this article is to analyze the results of a study of the development of analogical reasoning in deaf children coming from two different linguistic environments (deaf children of deaf parents--sign language, deaf children of hearing parents--spoken language) and in hearing children, as well as to compare two groups of deaf children to a group of hearing children. In order to estimate the development of children's analogical reasoning, especially the development of their understanding of different logical relations, two age groups were singled out in each population of children: younger (9- and 10-year-olds) and older (12- and 13-year-olds). In this way it is possible to assess the influence of early and consistent sign-language communication on the development of the conceptual system in deaf children and to establish whether early and consistent sign-language communication with deaf children affects their mental development to the same extent as early and consistent spoken-language communication with hearing children. The children were given three series of analogy tasks based on different logical relations: (a) a series of verbal analogy tasks (the relations of opposite, part-whole, and causality); (b) a series of numerical analogy tasks (the relations of class membership, opposite, and part-whole); and (c) a series of figural-geometric analogy tasks (the relations of opposite and part-whole). It was found that early and consistent sign-language communication with deaf children plays an almost equivalent role in the development of verbal, numerical, and spatial reasoning by analogy as early and consistent spoken-language communication with hearing children.  (+info)

Grammatical Subjects in home sign: Abstract linguistic structure in adult primary gesture systems without linguistic input. (7/18)

Language ordinarily emerges in young children as a consequence of both linguistic experience (for example, exposure to a spoken or signed language) and innate abilities (for example, the ability to acquire certain types of language patterns). One way to discern which aspects of language acquisition are controlled by experience and which arise from innate factors is to remove or manipulate linguistic input. However, experimental manipulations that involve depriving a child of language input are impossible. The present work examines the communication systems resulting from natural situations of language deprivation and thus explores the inherent tendency of humans to build communication systems of particular kinds, without any conventional linguistic input. We examined the gesture systems that three isolated deaf Nicaraguans (ages 14-23 years) have developed for use with their hearing families. These deaf individuals have had no contact with any conventional language, spoken or signed. To communicate with their families, they have each developed a gestural communication system within the home called "home sign." Our analysis focused on whether these systems show evidence of the grammatical category of Subject. Subjects are widely considered to be universal to human languages. Using specially designed elicitation tasks, we show that home signers also demonstrate the universal characteristics of Subjects in their gesture productions, despite the fact that their communicative systems have developed without exposure to a conventional language. These findings indicate that abstract linguistic structure, particularly the grammatical category of Subject, can emerge in the gestural modality without linguistic input.  (+info)

An ideal observer analysis of variability in visual-only speech. (8/18)

Normal-hearing observers typically have some ability to "lipread," or understand visual-only speech without an accompanying auditory signal. However, talkers vary in how easy they are to lipread. Such variability could arise from differences in the visual information available in talkers' speech, human perceptual strategies that are better suited to some talkers than others, or some combination of these factors. A comparison of human and ideal observer performance in a visual-only speech recognition task found that although talkers do vary in how much physical information they produce during speech, human perceptual strategies also play a role in talker variability.  (+info)

A data communication method includes: a Radio Network Controller (RNC) sends a notification message to a Node B to instruct the Node B to perform proper operations after a specific event occurs on the User Equipment (UE). A data communication system, a data sending apparatus and a data receiving apparatus are also provided in an embodiment of the present disclosure. Through the technical solution under the present disclosure, when specific events such as cell handover, disconnection and state transition occur on the UE, the RNC that obtains the event information may send a notification message to Node B to instruct the Node B to perform proper operations. Therefore, the Node B is prevented from continuing to send the buffered UE data from the source cell; and in the Cell_FACH state, the present disclosure saves the radio channel resources, shortens the transmission delay, and reduces the transmission packet loss ratio.
A group communication method for a wireless information device, in which the method comprises the step of using an application independent object which defines or references members of a group in a way that enables communication to take place between two or more members of the group. The group object defines solely the identities of members of a group as such, it is application (and hence also content) independent. This means that a group created in one application (e.g. a diary/agenda application could use that same group as the recipient list for an invitation,itation to a meeting); a voice application could use that same group to allow a voice to be conferenced across to all group members. Similarly, data specifically created for one group and in one application can be re-used in a different application and the data viewed appropriately for that different application.
Wireless communication methods and systems using multiple sectored cells. In one example, each cell of a cellular coverage area is divided into a number of sectors. A number of different half duplex or full duplex channels are used in each cell to communicate between a base station and a number of subscriber stations located in the cell. At least some of the channels may be reused in other cells of the coverage area. Additionally, some channels may be reused both amongst sectors of a given cell and in other cells of the coverage area. The sectored cells are arranged with respect to one other such that interference amongst similarly oriented sectors of different cells using one or more same channels is reduced. In another example, two adjacent cells are arranged with respect to each other such that sectors of the two cells that are similarly oriented approximately along a bore axis of the two cells, and in which radiation is transmitted in the two cells in essentially a same direction approximately along

She let us know about the two programs they have to offer. In California they still use the total communication method but in Utah they will phase that out this year - so I have two options. The first is a listening and spoken language path that focuses on listening and speaking skills so that children can eventually be mainstreamed into the public schools. The second is an ASL path in which children with hearing loss learn ASL and will spend preschool to 12th grade in an ASL classroom. With the ASL path, I would be provided with a deaf mentor who would come to the house once a week until I am ...

Total communication," I tell our visitor, "thats how we communicate with our young children. If we are going to an art lesson," I continue, "we will say Art and use the sign, show them the symbol and written word and let them hold and smell a tickly paint brush". "Thats fascinating," exclaims my visitor, "Ive never heard of anything like it - is it effective?". "Very," I tell her. "And I bet you use it more than you think.". These days, all methods of communication are used just to try and keep contact with family and friends - and I mean the ones you live with - never mind the emails to your sister in Oz, the SMS chat to girlfriends, Christmas cards to ex-colleagues, letters to your Granny, texts to your lover and phone calls to your mum.. I thought back to Sunday. As I got up in the morning, I saw a note under my bedroom door; it was from my daughter who wanted me not to wake her as shed had a late night. Going downstairs, I noticed a pair of mens boots in the kitchen. More ...
The pilot store for a new technology retailing concept is getting a low-key opening in Reading on 22 December.. The IT Works is a collaboration between electrical retailer Comet and BT and is billed as the UKs first total technology centre. Design work is by Cobalt, which merged with The Jenkins Group this autumn. Cobalt created the interiors, logo, graphics and uniforms and is now working on marketing and communications.. The concept, which offers a total communications solution, was researched in the US. It will cater for knowledgeable and discerning customers.. The Reading concept will be tested for six months before further stores are opened.. ...

A declaration with and for people who are often misperceived as being incompetent or less able because they do not speak. The vision: That all people with disability labels, who do not communicate through speech, have means of communication which allows their fullest participation in the world; that people can communicate using their chosen method; and that their communication is respected by others. And that Facilitated Communication will be accepted in practice and policy as a legitimate augmentative communication method. "We need support and help to clear away the barriers that make it hard or impossible for us to communicate and to actively participate in decision-making and public policy that affects our lives. We want to work collaboratively with other advocates to gain support for the right to communicate." ...

What I do not at all get is WHY you would care. You mention having information on which to base a practical mapping/navigation/communication system but surely youre not planning on going to a distant galaxy are you? And as for communicating, you would, depending on the distance, not get an answer until after youre dead (or for a REALLY close galaxy, after 8 or 10 years) and even that is based on some unlikely assumptions (we have a strong enough communication method that our signal would get there, they would BE there, they would understand the communication, they would respond ... just to name a few ...
The Functioning of Intelligence Mechanisms Directing Biologic Evolution, 1985) warned that the kind of communication occurring at the cellular level is different from the kind of communication occurring among animals: If humans, instead of transmitting to each other reprints and complicated explanations, developed the habit of transmitting computer programs allowing a computer-directed factory to construct the machine needed for a particular purpose, that would be the closest analogue to the communication methods among cells of various species ...
Not a Passage to India, nor a ticket to the abattoir for yet another useless umbrella label for airway disease like ACOS (watch this space!), but the BATMAN study. A short-odds favourite for the best study name of the decade award, BATMAN (see page 543, Editors choice) tried to take the monitoring of paediatric asthma howling loudly into the 21st century by enrolling 280 children with asthma into one of 3 limbs: see every 4 months, ask how them how they were doing (Asthma control test); do the same thing monthly, but with a web-based tool; or add FeNO to the four monthly assessments. And the answer: asthma control days were the same in all 3 groups, although the web-based and FeNO groups were able to reduce their ICS dose over this impressive, year long study. Our editorialist, Louise Fleming (see page 517), draws the twin conclusions that it doesnt matter what you do so long as you do it lots of times, and you should use modern communication methods to do it, both profoundly depressing to ...

The new speech language pathologist asked if I had a current copy of Nolans audiogram. I told her we most certainly did, and would be repeating a few frequencies on Tuesday. She asked if we had thought about communication styles, and noticed we had expressed an interest in auditory verbal therapy in his IFSP. I had put AVT in his IFSP on a lark, knowing that there were probably no therapists familiar with the technique in our area.. Lo and behold, the new SLP has done AVT with one of her former charges. She has also worked with a total communication model, so she will accomodate whatever we choose to do. We actually get a speech pathologist who has experience with hearing loss? Im doing a little tap dance as I type this! We want to proceed with AVT, so she requested that we get an aided audiogram to make sure Nolan is getting full access to all the sounds of speech. His level of loss should mean that he has access to all the sounds of speech with his aids, but we should verify his responses ...
Additional cytogenetic characterization of the terminal 22q deletion came in 1995, when Flint et al1 demonstrated deletions in 2 patients in a focused study in which chromosomal telomeres were examined in 99 patients with idiopathic MR. A combination of techniques (hypervariable DNA polymorphisms, FISH, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, and reverse chromosome painting) were used to characterize cryptic chromosomal rearrangements. One patient, a 22-year-old woman, had a deleted 22q as a result of an unbalanced translocation between the long arms of chromosomes 9 and 22. In addition to the monosomy 22, she had partial trisomy for 9q. The phenotype in this patient was severe with MR, absent speech, and congenital anomalies, including micrognathia, prominent nose, simple ears, gap between the 2 upper incisors, 2-3 toe syndactyly, right talipes equinovarus with pes cavus, and left calcaneovalgus deformity. Molecular characterization showed that the proximal breakpoint in this patient was between loci ...

OBJECTIVES: To better understand patient satisfaction and perceived engagement with traditional hospital-based communication and to elicit patient preferences for health information technologies that would lead to improved satisfaction and engagement. STUDY DESIGN: We performed a mixed-methods study involving qualitative interviews followed by a survey of hospitalized patients and their family members at a single large academic medical center. METHODS: We conducted semi-structured interviews with 41 patients and surveyed 267 patients or family members to elicit their perspectives on satisfaction with traditional hospital communication methods, information needed to more fully engage in the patients medical care, and potential solutions for improved hospital-based communication ...

Whitetails are social animals, and scent is their primary communication method. During the breeding season signposts such as rubs and scrapes provide the location for scent marking and information sharing. A growing body of research suggests pheromones (chemicals secreted from an animals body that affect other animals) are deposited at these signposts by mature bucks, and these pheromones may have a "bio-stimulating" or trigger effect on the breeding season.. Research also suggests that older bucks produce "controlling" or "priming" pheromones that yearling bucks are not physically mature enough to produce. Some studies even suggest a buck reaching dominant status produce greater amounts of pheromones than less dominant bucks of the same age, and increased stimulation of does by mature bucks through signposts may cause earlier and more synchronized breeding. While there isnt definitive proof that priming pheromones exist in whitetails, retired researcher Louis Verme and his colleagues found ...
Background: Almost 50 percent of all people affected by stroke get some form of speech and language disability that will have a major impact on their continued quality of life. Every year about 12 000 people in Sweden are diagnosed with aphasia, which means the lack of a linguistic function due to damage of the brain. Total absence of language is rare, usually the severity varies between forgetting and repeating words, incomprehensible speech and incorrect grammar. The nurse has a major role in the patients rehabilitation process after a stroke. Knowledge of aphasia and how it affects the individual and their relatives are important to provide adequate care and good treatment. Aim: The purpose of the study was to based on previous research describe how aphasia after stroke affects social life of adults persons. Method: Literature study that included ten articles, of which eight were qualitative and two was quantitative. Results: The results showed that many patients with aphasia experienced ...
For the second experiment, the aim was to ascertain how efficient in terms of number of training samples the learning process was, with multi-modal representations, in comparison with each individual modality. The reasoning is that it may be considered "unfair" to compare a vision-only system which used 60 training samples against a visuo-tactile system that used 120 (60 visual and 60 touch). Instead, the total number of training samples was set to a fixed value and the accuracy for uni-modal and multi-modal was computed. For example, when the number of training samples was set to 40, tactile-only and visual-only recognition was performed using 40 training samples, but multi-modal recognition was performed using 20 visual and 20 tactile, or 35 visual and 5 tactile, or any other combination. This is different to all previous work encountered, where, when it comes to sensor fusion, all data from both modalities are typically used (such as in the first experiment).. At test time, a single image was ...
After all of the jewelry making fun (it was a productive evening, as you can see from the rather blurry picture) I went to my first Signed Exact English class of the summer. Its a really, really small class this year, so that should be nice since everyone gets to know each other pretty well. We have to pick a song, story, or poem this class to read (or sync) and sign to at the end of the semester. Im going to have a hard time choosing, as there are so many good songs and books! Im happy to be back in the class, as I dont have anyone to practice with at home right now with Jer gone. Connor understands the signs, but all of the signs he uses are "home signs," meaning they are modified for his motor skills, so I dont have anyone to practice my receptive language skills on. They get rusty pretty quickly, as I discovered tonight when we had a review. Oh well-- thats what I get for getting behind on my studying ...
Prof. Andrew Nevins from UCL is a linguist who has worked on a wide range of topics, but primarily focused on phonology and morphology.

The talk is open for all!. ...
to be ready. When we finally pulled up to the house there were neighbors waiting at our house with balloons and a welcome home sign to help celebrate with our family! It was so wonderful to see the light in her eyes. She could hardly contain herself. We brought Leo out and he went crazy! She was so excited that he still knew who she was without even having to sniff her! While she was in the hospital Jacqueline painted and decorated her room to surprise her. It was so darling to see her face when she walked in. She loves her new room!. Emily was on such a high! She got to play with friends and of course with Leo. By the time 5:00 hit she was so exhausted. Her friend didnt understand why she was laying down wanting to watch a show. I explained that Emily is on a lot of medications and gets tired really easily.. The laurels in our ward showed up at our door dressed as princesses(they were so cute!) they brought Cambry, Mia and Hallie along and they had a little party making crowns and painting ...
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 ...
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],
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 ...

I applaud the United States Supreme Courts ruling today that executing people with mental retardation constitutes cruel and unusual punishment and is therefore unconstitutional. Todays ruling is the latest, most resounding indication of shifting public attitudes about government executions. Eighteen states already prohibit capital punishment for people with severe developmental disabilities and 16 of these have banned such executions within the last dozen years. The death penalty should not be imposed on those who are least capable of mature understanding and therefore least blameworthy, no matter how grave their crimes. Learn More ...
Take yesterday for an example. Two of the lights in my building started to flicker, and completely predictably, this did a number on my ability to talk. As soon as I saw the first light, I reported it (seriously those are a safety risk, photosensitive epilepsy exists, my losing speech is nowhere near the worst thing that could happen because of a flickering fluorescent.) I also knew that I needed to make sure I had a workable communication method other than speech at all times for the rest of the day. As it turned out, speech stuck around until about 1pm, then I got it back briefly around 2:40. It went kaput again right before 3 and came back around 4, after which it was iffy but extant for the rest of the day. Two of the three no-speech hours, I wrote on a white board to communicate. Writing on a white board is definitely my most-used "AAC ...
An important development during the Victorian era was the improvement of communication links. Stage coaches, canals, steam ships and most notably the railways all allowed goods, raw materials and people to be moved about, rapidly facilitating trade and industry. Trains became another important factor ordering society, with "railway time" being the standard by which clocks were set throughout Britain. Steam ships made international travel more common but also advanced trade, so that in Britain it was not just the luxury goods of earlier times that were imported into the country but essentials such as corn from the United States and meat from Australia. One more important innovation in communications was the Penny Black, the first postage stamp, which standardised postage to a flat price regardless of distance sent. Even later communication methods such as cinema, telegraph, telephones, cars and aircraft, had an impact. Photography was realized in 1839 by Louis Daguerre in France and William Fox ...
Getting everyone involved. When implementing ISO 9000, every level of a health care organization contributes to the quality effort. Senior leaders participate in annual performance reviews, where they receive individual feedback from the board of trustees, employees and peers. Included in this evaluation aremeasures such as effectiveness in meeting short- and long-term strategic goals and communicating quality values to employees and other stakeholders.. Senior leaders communicate and reinforce the organizations stakeholder focus and quality values to managers and supervisors. Communication methods can include job descriptions, bimonthly departmental and weekly individual meetings, and monthly reviews of a quality performance wheel.. Departments also can identify subprocesses, customers, measurements and action plans that are aligned with performance and improvement. Stakeholder focus and quality values are communicated to the work force and reinforced through personnel policies, training, ...
Next point there is absolutely no Channelling involved in the information we discuss in our book regarding the Pleiadians. Certainly not what I and most people term Channelling to be. I have continually stated publicly that this is nothing to do with Channelling. My wife and I have both experienced the otherworldly Astral Time Travel phenomena and the accounts we share are taken directly from face to face meetings with these beings, literally face to face visual and audio containing meetings. Not involving physical travel but by means of some kind of altering of consciousness - assumedly they cause this to happen as it is not from any practice or chemical that we are using. The only other communication method occurred on three occasions where trance mediumship was involved, which is also distinct from channelling. I dont mind that you will be just as hostile to these claims, but as said I prefer to be attacked on my actual claims. What we are stating is in fact probably far harder for a ...
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. ...
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 ...
The purpose of using an analogy is to give you insight into the chemistry involved in the lab experiment that is invisible. Thinking about chemistry at the molecular level is not trivial. Even if you are already familiar with the chemical concepts under investigation, thinking about an analogy or a model of a chemical concept can help deepen your understanding. Many famous scientists (even Albert Einstein) have reported using analogical thinking to come up with predictions and explanations about abstract scientific phenomena in order to make sense of theoretical and experimental results..

Researchers analyzed language development in 38,954 Norwegian boys and girls whose mothers did or did not take 400 mcg of folic acid per day, from four weeks before becoming pregnant to eight weeks afterward. Norway does not require manufacturers to fortify foods with folic acid.. Doctors measured severe language delay, which they defined as speaking only one word, or making only unintelligible sounds. In children whose moms did not take folic acid, 9 out of 1,000 had severe language delay. For children whose moms did take folic acid, the rate of severe language delay was less than half, or 4 in 1,000.. Reference: JAMA; 2011 Oct 12; Vol. 306, No. 14, 1566-73. ...

In my presentation I will try to provide hypotheses and neurophysiological evidences about the possible evolution of language from a neural motor system involved in action recognition. There are different theories about language evolution. Some authors claim that language evolved from monkey vocalization, others from gestural communication. Others even denies a direct evolution of language from some monkey precursor, considering the former as a completely new acquisition of the human gender, with characteristics that are completely different from any other animal cognitive function. A number of comparative anatomical and neurophysiological data seem to support a gradual evolution of language from gestural communication. Vocalization could at first glance appear as a very good candidate for evolution of verbal communication. However it must be noted that vocalization in monkeys is, in general, a function that an individual uses for sending some important messages to its group (for example about ...
National Institute of Advanced Studies. Indian Institute of Science Campus. Bangalore-12. OPEN DEFENCE OF THESIS. Title: Other Voices: Gestural Communication of Wild Bonnet Macaques Macaca radiata in the Bandipur National Park, Southern India. Candidate: Ms.Shreejata Gupta. School of Natural & Engineering Sciences. Adviser: Prof. Anindya Sinha. Date: Thursday, 14 January, 2016. Time: 11: 30 am. Venue: Lecture Hall, NIAS. Abstract: Human language is probably one of the most mysterious and intriguing of all behavioural expressions that one encounters in the living world. Although language is mostly viewed as expressed through spoken words alone, a crucial component of human language comprises gestural acts. It has been hypothesised that gestural communication is an evolutionarily older phenomenon, which developed much earlier than did speech in the modern human lineage. This evokes several important questions pertaining to the phylogeny of gestures in nonhuman primate species as well as the ...
Abstract: Hand gestures are powerful means of communication among humans and sign language is the most natural and expressive way of communication for dump and deaf people. In this work, real-time hand gesture system is proposed. Experimental setup of the system uses fixed position low-cost web camera with 10 mega pixel resolution mounted on the top of monitor of computer which captures snapshot using Red Green Blue [RGB] color space from fixed distance. This work is divided into four stages such as image preprocessing, region extraction, feature extraction, feature matching. First stage converts captured RGB image into binary image using gray threshold method with noise removed using median filter [medfilt2] and Guassian filter, followed by morphological operations. Second stage extracts hand region using blob and crop is applied for getting region of interest and then "Sobel" edge detection is applied on extracted region. Third stage produces feature vector as centroid and area of edge, which ...
It is a challenging task for researchers to determine how the brain solves multisensory perception, and the neural mechanisms involved remain subject to theoretical conjecture. According to a hypothesised cortical model for natural audiovisual stimulation, phase synchronised communications between participating brain regions play a mechanistic role in natural audiovisual perception. The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis by investigating oscillatory dynamics from ongoing EEG recordings whilst participants passively viewed ecologically realistic face-speech interactions in film. Lagged-phase synchronisation measures were computed for conditions of eye-closed rest (REST), speech-only (auditory-only, A), face-only (visual-only, V) and face-speech (audio-visual, AV) stimulation. Statistical contrasts examined AV , REST, AV , A, AV , V and AV-REST , sum(A,V)-REST effects. Results indicated that cross-communications between the frontal lobes, intraparietal associative areas and primary ...
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.

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. DJ is at Oberlin now, and Carly Fleischmann is about to go ...

as long as you know the woman who asked, and everything is legit, then i commend the son for wanting to help the dogs and his mom. however, trying to find a foster home might be a little difficult. but, if the son is willing to pay "board,food" for the dogs in a foster home,that might make it work. its very hard right now for the pits out there in shelters, as the rescues have overflowing pits in foster homes, and everyone can only do so much. if you can find a foster home to take both of them MAKE SURE the foster home signs an agreement that this is a BOARDING issue only, not a placement issue. make sure the son gets a copy, and make sure the son knows where the dogs are going to be and checks up on them at least every week to see how they are doing (plus he could pay the foster home weekly for their care). make sure whoever fosters them is reputable and a good person. you dont want him to take a chance and wind up with two dogs that came out not looking like they went in. there is no way the 2 ...

In this edition of reSearch we explore the use of augmentative and alternative communication with individuals with autism spectrum disorders. Augmentative and alternative communication (herein referred to as AAC) "... includes all forms of communication (other than oral speech) that are used to express thoughts, needs, wants, and ideas" (Retrieved January 21, 2010 from www.asha.org/public/speech/disorders/AAC). This is especially important for individuals with autism spectrum disorders (herein referred to as ASD). According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) AAC is used to as a supplement to existing speech or to replace speech that is not functional. There are two types of communication systems: unaided and aided. Unaided communication systems rely on the users body to convey messages through gestures, body language, and/or sign language. Aided communication systems involve the use of equipment in addition to the users body. Examples include: pen and paper, ...

Shri Thaawarchand Gehlot, Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment has said that in the "Rights of Persons With Disabilities (RPWD) Bill, the Disability has been defined based on an evolving and dynamic concept and the types of disabilities have been increased from existing 7 to 21 and the Central Government will have the power to add more types of disabilities. Addressing a Press Conference on the occasion of "International Day of Persons with Disabilities (3rd December)", he said that Speech and Language Disability and Specific Learning Disability have been added for the first time. Acid Attack Victims have been included. Dwarfism, muscular dystrophy have has been indicated as separate class of specified disability. The new categories of disabilities also included three blood disorders, Thalassemia, Hemophilia and Sickle Cell disease.. Shri Gehlot informed that the Bill provides for penalties for offences committed against persons with disabilities. Designated special courts have been ...
Forthcoming in Nature an article by Michael Dunn, Simon J. Greenhill, Stephen C. Levinson and Russell D. Gray entitled "Evolved structure of language shows lineage-specific trends in word-order universals" available here.. Abstract: Languages vary widely but not without limit. The central goal of linguistics is to describe the diversity of human languages and explain the constraints on that diversity. Generative linguists following Chomsky have claimed that linguistic diversity must be constrained by innate parameters that are set as a child learns a language. In contrast, other linguists following Greenberg have claimed that there are statistical tendencies for co-occurrence of traits reflecting universal systems biases, rather than absolute constraints or parametric variation. Here we use computational phylogenetic methods to address the nature of constraints on linguistic diversity in an evolutionary framework . First, contrary to the generative account of parameter setting, we show that the ...
Hannahs Hope Foundation was originally created to bring families together who are facing similar challenges around raising a child with a diagnosis of Angelman Syndrome. Our vision is to educate, enlighten and empower families who are raising individuals with complex communication needs (CCN) - which has evolved beyond Angelman.

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. ...

I downloaded the article not so long ago, and I think it is very interesting. The whorfian hypothesis (which claims that linguistic structure as such influences cognition) is still hotly debated in the area of numerical cognition. Together with Pierre Pica (from CNRS) I have co-edited a special issue which is completely devoted to this topic, and which will appear in Philosophical Psychology, still this year if everything goes well. The special issue contains contributions from amongst others Brian Butterworth, Pierre Pica, Veronique Izard, Ann Dowker and Tom Verguts. If you are interested, I can give you the precise reference once the papers have appeared.. ...
This book is made up of an introductory chapter, ten historical/philosophical chapters on Frege, and four postscripts to the chapters. The topics are divided into the three areas of the books title: (1) Freges work on truth, which includes his revolutionary insights into linguistic and cognitive structure, into the nature of truth conditions, and into philosophical method in using logic to frame and clarify philosophical problems; (2) his work on cognition, which uses linguistic structure not as a focus but as a starting point; and (3) his defense and development of knowledge based on reason, principally knowledge in logic and mathematics.

The term `quorum sensing (QS) is used to define a population density based communication mechanism which uses chemical signal molecules called autoinducers to trigger unique and varied changes in gene expression. Although several communication methods have been identified in bacteria that are unique to a particular species, one type of signal molecule, autoinducer-2 (AI-2) is linked to interspecies communication, indicating its potential as a universal signal for cueing a QS response among multiple bacterial types. In E. coli, AI-2 acts as an effector by binding to the QS repressor LsrR. As a result, LsrR unbinds and relieves repression of the lsr regulon, stimulating a subsequent QS gene expression cascade. In this dissertation, LsrR structure and in vitro binding activity are examined. Genomic binding and DNA microarray analyses are conducted and three novel sites putatively regulated by LsrR, yegE-udk, mppA and yihF, are revealed. Two cAMP receptor protein (CRP) binding locations in ...
The acceptability and feasibility of a home-based gestural training program for nine children with Angelman syndrome (AS), deletion positive, and their parents were examined. Children with AS have been found to exhibit a variety of challenges, including severe communication disabilities for which different Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) systems have been of limited use (Alvares & Downing, 1998). Parents in this study were taught to recognize and then enhance their childrens use of natural gestures as enhanced natural gestures (ENGs). ENGs are intentional behaviors that are present in a childs motor repertoire or can be easily taught based on a childs extant motor skills. Unlike contact gestures, such as grabbing objects from partners or pulling partners toward preferred activities, ENGs do not require physical contact with entities or interactants and are readily understood by others in context. Parents were taught to use four primary teaching techniques: environmental sabotage,

Learning any difficulty new skill can be frustrating at times. This is especially true for children trying to master the ability to communicate in one-on-one speech and language therapy sessions. As any clinician knows, children who may not have the skills to verbally express their wants and needs may resort to exhibiting challenging behaviors that both disrupt the therapy session and limit the progress made toward session goals. Functional Communication Training (FCT) allows the clinician and child to develop a system of mutual communication that can extinguish the use of challenging behaviors. In this way, the clinician can provide positive behavior supports in a one-on-one setting that can help increase a childs communicative abilities outside the therapy room, in the home, school, and community. This presentation presentation will explain the concept of FCT, the research supporting the efficacy of FCT, and how FCT may be adapted to the needs of an individual child in the therapy setting. It will
Treatment comparisons without head-to-head trials are frequently formed using indirect comparisons across multiple trials, making the assumption that any effect modifiers are balanced between trials. Recently proposed methods which relax this assumption, including Matching-Adjusted Indirect Comparison (MAIC) and Simulated Treatment Comparison (STC), are becoming increasingly common in industry-sponsored treatment comparisons, where a company has individual patient data (IPD) from its own trials but only aggregate data from competitor trials. These methods aim to adjust for between-trial differences to form population-adjusted indirect comparisons, and may even be used for comparisons involving single arm studies or disconnected networks. However, additional assumptions and complexities are introduced which must be carefully considered. Since the premise of population adjustment methods is that relative treatment effects can differ between populations, a core component of population adjustment in ...
2. How to avoid what might be labelled the voyeuristic misconception regarding how the device works. This phrase captures the potential worry that the device will read and externalise all the users thoughts indiscriminately. The fear that the device might permit others to peer into the users mind is understandable. However, a challenge in the development of the device is to ensure either that the device can discriminate between covert speech that the user intends to be externalised, and private thoughts with linguistic structure, or that some other mechanism of control is built in, such as a verification command. Of course, a misconception is only a misconception if it is not aligned with reality. How the device will operate and what, if any, risk of involuntary speech remains will need careful explanation, both to avoid any misconception, but also to acknowledge any risks, if present ...
It is suggested that certain kinds of finite state automata--i.e., recurrent neural networks,are likely to have sufficient computational power, and the necessary generalization capability, to serve as models for the processing and acquisition of linguistic structure. These arguments are further corroborated by a number of computer simulations, demonstrating that recurrent connectionist models are able to learn complex recursive regularities and have powerful generalization abilities. Importantly, the performance evinced by the networks are comparable with observed human behavior on similar aspects of language. Moreover, an evolutionary account is provided, advocating a learning and processing based explanation of the origin and subsequent phylogenetic development of language. This view construes language as a nonobligate symbiant, arguing that language has evolved to fit human learning and processing mechanisms, rather than vice versa. As such, this perspective promises to explain linguistic ...

The one aspect of this book that I didnt like is that it did focus a lot on the birth and not so much on Nellas life afterwards. I would have loved more on the growing pains of Nella through the first year (when this book ends). Also at times, Hamptons need for perfection was a bit off putting at the start of the novel. Seeing the how she had to have each thing perfect, from the welcome home sign, to the champagne glasses, seemed excessive. Her room during and after birth was a constant girlfriend party complete with beer cooler. But it is different strokes for different folks, and I am just more of a privacy and quiet minded person during birth. The one purpose this did serve though was to show how it was a struggle for Hampton that she was really used to trying to have the perfect everything, and to unexpectedly not find perfection was hard for her to work through ...
The other notable market observation is how closely the iPhone follows the same pattern as the market. The red line representing the iPhone above is almost perfectly parallel to the green and blue lines which represent the overall market. The reason for this seems to be that consumers are absorbing the product in similar way to how they are absorbing the technology.1 The "learning model" which underpins logistic models could offer clues as to the cause. It suggests that there is a direct communication that happens between the product and the consumer.. Incidentally, the reason other platforms do not follow this pattern is that they are not communicating value with the consumer but with manufacturers or distributors of the product. These alternative communications could create faster or slower growth than the overall market as they are not subject to the same large population imitation/learning models.. If we believe that the iPhone can be modeled behaviorally then it may be possible to forecast ...
Autism is a disorder characterized by difficulty with social interactions, difficulty expressing empathy and intimacy and, in many cases, mild to severe language and learning deficits. Current estimates suggest autism now affects approximately one in 88 children, with rates increasing rapidly, making autism one of the most common and devastating developmental disorders. This trend is especially alarming considering that a cause for this disorder has yet to be discovered, nor are there successful biological treatments. Here a possible biochemical etiology is proposed for a certain spectrum of autism based on a reaction between propionic acid and ammonia released by Candida albicans in the gastrointestinal tract. A reaction between ammonia and propionic acid should result in the production of beta-alanine, a chemical similar in composition to gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), an inhibitory neurotransmitter which has been shown to be present in higher quantities in autistic patients. Assuming ...

Introduction CHILDREN WITH AUTISM: Are delayed in language development (Lord & Paul, 1997; Menyuk & Quill, 1985; Paul & Alforde, 1993; Swisher & Demetras, 1985) Frequently omit morphemes (Bartolucci, Pierce, & Streiner, 1980; Howlin, 1984; Roberts, Rice & Tager-Flusberg, 2004) May have atypical order of acquisition of morphemes (Bartolucci, Pierce, & Streiner, 1980; Menyuk & Quill, 1985; Paul & Alforde, 1993; Swisher & Demetras, 1985) Language development in children with autism is not well understood, however it has been the interest of many researchers over the years The findings, although indicating heterogeneity in language development within the diagnosis of autism, point to certain generalizations. Specifically, children with autism are typically delayed in the onset of language acquisition, they frequently omit morphemes, and when they do develop morphemes, they are often acquired in an atypical order. Studies show that up to 75% have a language disorder (Roberts, Rice, Tager-Flusberg)
In 1986, plaintiffs moved to reinstate the case, alleging continued violations of federal constitutional law. Judge Weinstein denied the motion and granted plaintiffs sixty days to file a new complaint. The Second Circuit reversed and remanded so the district court could reinstate the case and enforce those parts of the 1983 order that were based in federal constitutional law. Society for Good Will to Retarded Children, Inc. v. Cuomo, 832 F.2d 245 (2d Cir. 1987). On remand, the district court (Judge Weinstein) found that although there were improvements, there remained constitutional violations in the center. Society for Good Will for Retarded Children, Inc. v. Cuomo, 718 F. Supp. 139 (E.D.N.Y. 1989). It ordered the state to implement a plan to make improvements. The Second Circuit reversed and remanded because the district courts findings were not adequate to review the case. Society for Good Will to Retarded Children, Inc. v.

The 8-meter-tall (25 ft) fiberglass Headington Shark is hard to miss not just because of its length, but more so because it appears to be crashing headfirst into the roof of a cozy British house. The shark was placed on the houses roof on August 9, 1986, the 41st anniversary of the Nagasaki bombing, by the homeowner as a statement about the devastation brought on by the use of nuclear weapons. The local neighborhood council wasnt particularly thrilled about the bizarre leviathan and attempted to have it removed. However, the homeowner successfully appealed to the British Secretary of the Environment on behalf of the shark and was able to save it from being taken down.. Visitors from around the world flock to New High Street to see the shark each year. Many come to celebrate the sharks birthday. Drinks and cake are served, and the owner of the home signs copies of his book, The Hunting of the Shark. The home (shark attached) went up for rent in 2014 for just over £2,000 a month.

Hospital visits and procedures can be distressing for children and their families and an inability to communicate feelings about this or to understand what is happening can increase stress.. Hospital staff often rely on parents of children with communication difficulties to act as interpreters and have little knowledge of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and communication disabilities.. This paper looks into some of the ways in which the effects of using AAC interventions in health care can be measured.. The authors used two measures of anxiety and stress to investigate the effects of introducing AAC strategies into a childrens day surgery unit. Staff were trained to use pictorial supports to explain what was going to happen to children and to allow them to ask questions about the procedure. Measurement of salivary cortisol levels was use to assess stress, an adapted anxiety scale was used and childrens need for premedication due to anxiety or tension was considered in ...
Six-year old Danielle Brown was born without the ability to form sounds to make words. She needed a special device called an augmentative and alternative communication device (AAC) that uses symbols, pictures, and a keyboard to help her communicate, but Medicaid had refused to pay.. The Center sued the agency, arguing that the AAC device was just as necessary to people with severe speech disorders as hearing aids are to people with hearing loss. Given that Medicaid already paid for hearing aids and other medically necessary equipment, failure to pay for the ACC devices violated the Medicaid Act and federal laws designed to protect disabled Americans from discrimination.. The suit was filed in June 1998 with help from the Alabama Disabilities Advocacy Program and the Assistive Technology Law Project. It was settled soon after and Medicaid began paying for the device for Danielle and other children and adults with severe speech disorders. One expert estimated that at least 35 Alabamians a year ...
