Seyed Abolfazl Tohidast, PhD and Banafshe Mansuri, PhD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: November 30, 2020

Fraser syndrome is one of the rare congenital anomalies occurring when fingers or toes, and eyelid formation fail to separate during pregnancy. The purpose of this paper is to report the results of laryngeal and voice evaluation in a patient with Fraser syndrome. The case is an eleven-years-old girl with Fraser syndrome who underwent laryngeal examination with laryngoscopy and also auditory-perceptual and acoustic voice characteristics evaluations. The results of the laryngoscopy showed that the...

Stuttering is a speech fluency disorder. Although recent studies have shown that most of its etiology is genetic, some parents considered their own caregiving or siblings as the cause of stuttering. This study aimed to address the clinical question associated with whether having siblings increases the risk of stuttering. We assessed the numbers and proportions of sibship size and birth order of 102 people who stutter (76 males and 26 females; average 11.8 years). In addition, we compared the occ...

Statistical Learning in Persons with Aphasia: A Critical Review of Literature

Darshan HS and Goswami SP

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: October 26, 2020

Statistical learning is the process of discovering patterns which are present in the input. Serial Reaction Time Task (SRTT) is commonly used to study statistical learning. Recently, many studies have been conducted in aphasia literature. But it is unclear about the magnitude of learning considering the learning conditions, methodological variations and consolidation of learning in persons with aphasia when compared to neurotypical individuals. This review discusses the learning differences base...

Childhood Apraxia of Speech: From the First Motor Planning and Execution to Video Modeling During the Home Quarantine Period

Omid Mohamadi

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 05, 2020

The American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA) position statement specifically defines Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) as follows: "Childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) is a neurological childhood (pediatric) speech sound disorder in which the precision and consistency of movements underlying speech are impaired in the absence of neuromuscular deficits (e.g., abnormal reflexes, abnormal tone). CAS may occur as a result of known neurological impairment, in association with complex neurobe...

A Study of the Correlation between Phonetic Parameters during Sustained Vowel and Speech Production with Benign Laryngeal Disorders

Phan Huu Ngoc Minh, Eun Mi Yun and Ki Hwan Hong

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: April 08, 2020

The purpose of this study to analyze and discuss the magnitude of the correlation between aerodynamic evaluations, acoustic measures, and auditory-perceptual parameters. We analyzed 39 voices of patients with benign vocal pathology. Four sensitive acoustic parameters were measured from a sustained vowel /a/ and aerodynamic parameters from a set of syllables /pi//phi//p’i/. Perceptive assessment was performed using the GRBAS (Grade, Rough, Breathy, Asthenic, Strained) scale. Firstly, results po...
