Questions related to Language Disorders
Est ce qu'il y a une relation entre la présence de nombreux symptômes de la schizophrénie comme par exemple les idées délirantes et l’apparition du langage désorganisé et dérangé?
One of my classes is requiring the students to create an E-Prime task. It cannot be a "Go No Go" task, which all we talked about in class. I am really confused on everything about E-Prime. I was thinking about looking at language in 22q11.2DS individuals. I am not sure how I would do this.

Detection Test for Language Impairments in Adults and the Aged-A New Screening Test for Language Impairment Associated With Neurodegenerative Diseases: Validation and Normative Data.

To date, there is no quick screening test that could be used during routine office visits to accurately assess language disorders in neurodegenerative diseases. To fill this important gap, we developed the Detection Test for Language impairments in Adults and the Aged (DTLA), a quick, sensitive, standardized screening test designed to assess language disorders in adults and the elderly individuals. In Study 1, we describe the development of the DTLA. In Study 2, we report data on the DTLA's validity and reliability. Finally, in Study 3, we establish normative data for the test. The DTLA has good convergent and discriminant validity as well as good internal consistency and test-retest reliability. Norms for the DTLA obtained from a sample of 545 healthy, community-dwelling, French-speaking adults from 4 French-speaking countries (Belgium, Canada (Quebec), France, and Switzerland) are provided. The development, validation, and standardization of the DTLA constitute a significant effort to meet the need for a language screening test adapted to neurodegenerative diseases.
I am looking for someone who was part of a team that adapted the Bilingual Aphasia Test. I am mainly interested in who they used for drawing their stimuli?
Is there a diagnostic scheme for persisting receptive language disorder (ICD10: F80.28) used with (non-autistic) adults in adult psychiatry (or neurology or language/speech therapy)?
Receptive language disorder – as a neurodevelopmental disorder - is usually underdiagnosed in childhood, as you can`t perceive it directly, contrary to expressive language disorder. Non-diagnosed, otherwise non-retarded and non-autistic individuals (therefore without speech therapy) won`t loose this problem when grown up. Nevertheless, there is evidence that individuals with (receptive) language disorders will perform worse in different fields of life as adults and have a risk to develop mental disorders. Is there any scheme to diagnose this disorder in late adolescence or adulthood (especially as a comorbid problem) – in order to model therapeutic and social interventions better?
i am working on research on this topic. MT Dysphonia is my diagnosis. I am a teacher who is trying to overcome the short and long term effects of this silent disorder. I was first diagnosed in December of 2016. Education in school systems and in higher education needs greater awareness and tolerance of speech and language disorders and how they affect quality of life. Greater transparency and support needs to be mandated on a provincial level. If 1/3 people deal with this during their lifetime, I feel this needs to be further addressed in education and health sectors.
I am looking for research evidence of effective specific SLT interventions for use with school aged children with cochlear implant and delayed / disordered acquisition of vocabulary, syntax and morphology skills.
I'm creating c-tests for bilingual children in two different languages. Original texts are taken from books for children. I was wondering how I can measure the complexity of different texts, since languages are also very different: e.g. Italian and Slovenian. Is Type/Token ratio a good measure for this purpose? Do you know any other measure?
I am writing chapter 3 of my proposal and I need an instrument to measure language development for low functioning autistic children. I will appreciate if any of you will allow me to use the instrument that you already have.
I am doing a quasi-experimental study and using a small population of 5 autistic students (3 to 5 years old). My strategy includes photographs of each child natural environment which will allow me to initiate conversation with each one. I use each child's IEP as a pretest and will use the measurement that I am looking for to verify progress in the post-test towards the end of the training.
I am seeking information about: 1) the age ranges, and 2) the clinical nature of the normative information for the following tests. I did not find the information through a literature search and I do not have the corresponding manuals. If you have info about any of these I would really appreciate your sharing. Thanks!
• Aphasia Screening Test, 2nd Edition (AST; Whurr, 1996)
• Quick Assessment for Aphasia (Tanner & Culbertson, 1999)
• Boston Assessment of Severe Aphasia (BASA; Helm-Estabrooks, Ramsberger, Morgan, & Nicholas, 1989)
• Butt Nonverbal Reasoning Test (BNVR; Butt & Bucks, 2004)
• Comprehensive Aphasia Test (CAT; Swinburn, Porter, & Howard, 2004)
• Measure of Cognitive-Linguistic Abilities (MCLA; Ellmo, Graser, Krchnavek, Hauck, & Calabrese, 1995)
• Quality of Communication Life Scale (ASHA QCL; Paul, Frattali, Holland, Thompson, Caperton, & Slater, 2004)
I am interested in knowing whether the ability to transfer properties from one conceptual domain to another is affected in all developmental language disorders regardless of their etiology (i.e. which gene is mutated) or their principal symptomatology (i.e. which components of language are more impaired). Specifically, I wonder if we should expect (or someone has already observed) that people affected by language disorders which do not involve conceptual abilities (i.e. dyslexia) still have problems with metaphor processing. Thanks a lot in advance for your help.
The reason for my question is given a) the wealth of research demonstrating that a large range of aphasic symptoms can be (partially?) explained in terms of impairments of STM/working memory, executive deficits (eg, inhibition, attention), praxic impairments (eg, apraxia of speech), perceptual impairments (eg, aspects of anomia), and b) the acknowledge dependence of language processing on memory (mainly STM/WM), praxis/action (programming of articulation), executive functions: 'language' is impossible without these 'horizontal' cognitive functions.
Bilinguals can be dyslexic in one language but not the other. Can bilingualism be the key to eliminating dyslexia or is it still too difficult for them to learn another language?
Concerning another question I've asked here:(https://www.researchgate.net/post/Can_language_impairment_in_autistic_children_be_explained_by_a_general_cognitive_impairment_low_IQ#share). I wonder if there are any communication impairments (language impairments in particular) in children with Asperger's Syndrome. As far as I know, these children - in comparison to children with autism - are described as to have good language skills.
In addition I wonder if children with AS show any social impairments comparable to children with autism.
Can you think of any papers giving an overview or something I could start with?
I have provided screenings for adults in several states using a standardized test that is useful for detecting changes in the reaction time of adults for naming (A Quick Test). General information about the test can be found at http://www.pearsonassessments.com/HAIWEB/Cultures/en-us/Productdetail.htm?Pid=015-8237-269&Mode=summary. The instrument is useful for detecting changes in individuals' memory and word retrieval associated with Alzheimer's Dementia. When individuals perform with slower-than-normal or abnormal reaction times for single naming and/or dual naming, they are referred to their doctors for follow-up. However, since the focus was on a preventative, community service project, and not a true experimental study, I have some interesting information, without a home for publication. I believe I could write a discussion paper about screening for Alzheimer's, with emphasis on the role of the Speech-Language Pathologist, and the benefits of such activities. What do my colleagues suggest? I have data on monolingual and bilingual English-Speakers, 25 to 89 years of age. The data consists of the test results, detailed case histories with information on general health and educational level.
What are the specific procedures to diagnose and treat language disorders in children with developmental disabilities, PPD and autism, TBI, CP and hearing loss? How do diagnoses and treatment differ between them?
