The Follow Study of Speech Functions in Preschool Children With Cerebral Palsy: Clinical Measures and Acoustic Analysis

NCT ID: NCT02378987


Title
The Follow Study of Speech Functions in Preschool Children With Cerebral Palsy: Clinical Measures and Acoustic Analysis
Purpose
The aims of this study: 1. to investigate the difference in motor speech functions among children with cerebral palsy (CP) of different motor severities. 2. to investigate the longitudinal in motor speech functions at 6 months follow-up phase among children with CP of different motor severities. 3. the correlation between motor severity, personal factors, family factors, language ability and motor speech in children with CP. 4. to identify the variables that can predict motor speech functions in children with CP.
Details
Mental impairment, language and speech disorders are the common associated problems in children with CP. Previous studies focus on language and motor speech dysfunctions in children with CP at school-age child, adolescents and adults. Few literatures identify the determinants for predicted the motor speech performance in these children. It is important issue to follow-up the language and motor speech functions in children with CP. These data will provide clinicians for outcome prediction and goal setting.The aims of this study: (1) to investigate the difference in motor speech functions among children with CP of different motor severities, and(2) to investigate the longitudinal in motor speech functions at 6 months follow-up phase among children with CP of different motor severities, and(3) the correlation between motor severity, personal factors, family factors, language ability and motor speech in children with CP, and(4) to identify the variables that can predict motor speech functions in children with CP.
