Dysphagia Practice Patterns Of Virginia Speech-Language Pathologists, Molly Kathleen Dailey 2019 Longwood University

Dysphagia Practice Patterns Of Virginia Speech-Language Pathologists, Molly Kathleen Dailey

Theses, Dissertations & Honors Papers

Currently, there are a variety of screening tools, clinical, and instrumental assessments used by speech-language pathologists (SLPs) to diagnose dysphagia and plan for treatment. Anecdotal reports and empirical evidence suggest that dysphagia assessment and treatment practice patterns vary considerably across patient populations, work settings, and clinicians. Understanding the SLP assessment and treatment practices across settings and factors that may influence their decisions will help inform future directions in dysphagia education, training, and clinical practice components. These findings will enable the provision of quality care that will ultimately lead to positive patient health outcomes. Thus, this survey study was designed to ...


Entertainment-Related Excessive Sound Exposure (Erese): Associated Audiometric-Threshold Patterns, Ashley Lenard 2019 Illinois State University

Entertainment-Related Excessive Sound Exposure (Erese): Associated Audiometric-Threshold Patterns, Ashley Lenard

AuD Capstone Projects - Communication Sciences and Disorders

Previous studies have reported that exposure to hazardous sounds can result in a mild to profound degree of temporary and permanent hearing loss. Typically, individuals exposed to loud industrial noise develop a notch or dip at or near the pure-tone test frequency 4,000 Hz. Exposure to hazardous recreational and work-place sound has been associated with noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) and tinnitus has been associated with exposure to high-intensity concert sound as well. The purpose of this project was to report whether audiometric patterns have been reported in the literature that may be associated with entertainment-related excessive sound exposure (ERESE ...

Individualized Frequency Importance Functions For Listeners With Sensorineural Hearing Loss, Sarah E. Yoho, Adam K. Bosen 2019 Utah State University

Individualized Frequency Importance Functions For Listeners With Sensorineural Hearing Loss, Sarah E. Yoho, Adam K. Bosen

Communicative Disorders and Deaf Education Faculty Publications

The Speech Intelligibility Index includes a series of frequency importance functions for calculating the estimated intelligibility of speech under various conditions. Until recently, techniques to derive frequency importance required averaging data over a group of listeners, thus hindering the ability to observe individual differences due to factors such as hearing loss. In the current study, the “random combination strategy” [Bosen and Chatterjee (2016). J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 140, 3718–3727] was used to derive frequency importance functions for individual hearing-impaired listeners, and normal-hearing participants for comparison. Functions were measured by filtering sentences to contain only random subsets of frequency bands ...

An Experimental Evaluation Of Stop-Plosive And Fricative Consonant Intelligibility By Tracheoesophageal Speakers In Quiet And Noise, Sebastiano Failla

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Despite functional levels of postlaryngectomy communication, individuals who undergo total laryngectomy and tracheoesophageal (TE) puncture voice restoration continue to experience significant communication difficulties in noisy environments. In an effort to identify and further characterize TE speakers’ intelligibility in noise, the current auditory perceptual study investigated stop-plosive and fricative intelligibility of TE speech in quiet and in the presence of multi-talker noise. Eighteen listeners evaluated monosyllabic consonant-vowel-consonant words produced by 14 TE speakers using an open-response paradigm. Our findings indicate that overall intelligibility was significantly lower in noise. Further examination showed a differential effect of noise on intelligibility according to manner ...
