People say between 150 and 200 words a minute on average during a casual conversation.
More than 10,000 children are born each year with cerebral palsy (CP) making it the most common motor disability in childhood.
Our current research study examines speech characteristics in children. Opportunities to participate in the study will be coming in late Spring 2023. To be notified when the study begins and for questions about the study, …
For children with mild-moderate and severe intelligibility reduction, there was a large range of variability in parent ratings. For children with high intelligibility, ratings were consistent with intelligibility scores.
The aim of the study was to examine longitudinal growth in intelligibility in connected speech from 2 to 8 years of age in children with cerebral palsy.
By Peter Jurich, Waisman Science Writer With every challenge comes new opportunities. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S. in March 2020, much of the country went on lock-down with only essential services and operations …
We sought to establish normative growth curves for intelligibility development for the speech of typical children as revealed by objectively-based orthographic transcription of elicited single word and multiword utterances by naïve listeners.
We examined growth between 5 and 7 years in speech intelligibility, speech rate, and intelligible words per minute (IWPM) in three groups of children: those who were typically developing (TD), those with cerebral palsy (CP) and clinical speech motor impairment (SMI), and those with CP and no speech motor impairment (NSMI).
A new study of children with cerebral palsy could help ease the speech and language challenges many of these children face as they get older.
Although children with cerebral palsy (CP) are at an increased risk for developing speech, language, and executive function (EF) impairments, little is known regarding the relationship among these risk factors.
