The perceptual analysis of speech intelligibility by different populations has been used in research with children with speech sound disorders [14,19,21].
After the sessions concluded, researchers scanned the babies' brains as they listened to a series of music and speech sounds, each played out in a rhythm that was occasionally disrupted.
Articulation disorders are an irregularity or failure in pronouncing one or more speech sounds. The basic division of articulation disorders includes: absence of individual speech sounds (omission), replacing certain speech sounds with other speech sounds (substitution) and incorrect articulation of certain sounds (distortion).
The fact that two speech sounds closely resemble each other, does not mean that they are to be considered as (allophones of) the same phoneme.
One such intervention builds up the regions of the left hemisphere responsible for perception of speech sounds, working memory and oral language skills.
Infants pay greater attention to new sounds, so researchers compared how long a group of 6-month-olds focused on a speech sound they were familiarized with -"tea"' - to a new speech sound, "ta."
Although two different terms are used in the literature, both refer to the ability to discriminate between two speech sounds with minor differences.
The researchers showed that dyslexic adults have a malfunction in a structure that transfers auditory information from the ear to the cortex is a major cause of the impairment: the medial geniculate body in the auditory thalamus does not process speech sounds correctly.
Both investigations have appeared in high-profile science journals, drawing unprecedented publicity for explorations of speech sounds and word orders.
Students will also be practicing the skills and strategies that are assessed in the "Indiana Reading Diagnostic Assessment--First Grade." The suggestions are based on the following basic dimensions of reading: (1) Phonemic Awareness--understand the relationship between speech sounds and print; (2) Systematic Phonics--ability to decode unfamiliar words; (3) Fluency--ability to read effortlessly for comprehension; (4) Background Knowledge and Vocabulary--ways to foster comprehension; (5) Comprehension--development of active strategies to construct meaning from print; and (6) Motivation--development and maintenance of the desire to read and write.
Surrounded by examples of speech used to refer to everyday objects and activities, children learn to produce the same speech sounds to express themselves.
