Articulation Disorder

  1. What are CLIENT FACTORS in Clinical Transcription?
    • AGE- Children are more difficult
    • Difficulty ATTENDING TO TASK
    • May vary VOICE and PITCH
    • May have other DISTRACTIONS, i.e. Kicking table, etc.
    • Main reason: INCOMPLETE SPEECH DEVELOPMENT: Some sounds may be ambiguous
  2. In regard to DIALECT (appendix F) need to BE AWARE OF:
    • Regional and ethnic differences and acceptable boundaries for each Physical and personality characteristics
    • Amount of lip movement: “Over articulation”
    • Speed of Speech Vocal Quality
    • Interpersonal relationships: tend to give your client the benefit of the doubt.
  3. Task Factors
    • Intelligibility- consider with and without context
    • May need to gloss the utterance
    • Gloss: the clinician’s determination of what the child intended to say.
  4. Number and type of linguistic units: phoneme, syllable, words, in which the target is embedded. Easier to score in simple context is known as...
    Linguistic Context (Complexity)
  5. Number of transcription responses is known as...
    Response complexity
  6. What term describes if the first 10 are correct, the 11th would have to be extremely difficult to be judged correctly.
    Successive Judgment
  7. 4 factors influencing task variables
    • Gloss
    • Linguistic context
    • Response Complexity
    • Keeping rapid successive judgments accurate
  8. 2 Major advantages of video...
    • Video recording preserves certain visual gestures
    • Preserves context which maybe necessary to understand speech-language behavior: eye gaze, lips.
  9. What's the Prep for Clinical Transcription?
    • Select set of symbols
    • Clarity: Can symbols be confused
    • Speed: Write quickly
    • Visibility to client--the client should not be able to see your recording

  28. Problems in producing speech sounds
    Articulation Disorders
  29. Organs of speech production mechanism, help produce meaningful sound by interrupting the flow of exhaled air or by narrowing the space for its passage.
    • Articulators
    • lips
    • tongue
    • velum
    • jaw

  30. A branch of phonetics that focuses on how a speaker of a language makes speech sounds.
    Articulatory Phonetics (Physiologic Phonetics)
  31. The effect one speech sound has on another when produced in close sequence, such that the sounds become more like each other. The effect can be so extensive that it can be perceptually identified.
    • Assimilation
    • Progressive
    • Regressive
  32. The playful vocal sounds that babies produce beginning at about 6-7 months of age.
  33. A distinctive feature that characterizes sounds made in the back part of the oral cavity, the body of the tongue is retracted from the neutral position "schwa" during the production of sounds containing this feature.
