3. Behavioral and Neural Outcome Data in Children With Dysarthria Consequent to Cerebral Palsy and Down Syndrome
This chapter explores the current research on using LSVT LOUD for dysarthria in childhood populations. These studies will be explained through an expert interview with Dr. Carol Boliek, lead researcher for this work. Dr. Boliek will explain acoustic, perceptual, physiological, and neural imaging studies. She will discuss fast- and slow-phase neuroplasticity evidence and what that means for developing treatment protocols for these children.
