Speech Strategies for Children With Cerebral Palsy
Children with motor speech disorders are under-represented in speech treatment research. An aim of the Speech Production and Perception Lab is to contribute important scientific knowledge on effective techniques for improving speech intelligibility in children with dysarthria. This knowledge will serve as evidence on which to base clinical practice.
We are currently recruiting children with and without cerebral palsy (4-17 years old) for speech testing. They will use different techniques for improving their speech communication and we will hear how they sound. We will provide feedback to parents. All participant information is kept completely confidential. You will be paid $50 for your time and effort!
Please see our website at www.tc.columbia.edu/spplab and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (212) 678-8361 to see if your child may qualify. The study is directed by Prof. Erika Levy, Ph.D., CCC-SLP and Kyung Hae Hwang, M.S., CCC-SLP. It takes place at Teachers College, Columbia University (120th Street) and takes up to 2 hours. Funding is provided through an ASHFoundation Clinical Research Grant.
