Latest Research and Treatment Innovations in Speech, Language, and Hearing Disorders to be Presented at ASHA National Convention

to 90% of Parkinson’s patients suffer from speech disorders. Further evidence of a proven course of treatment to salvage one’s voice will be presented. In a randomized clinical trial of 84 patients, researchers evaluated the short- and long-term impact of a particular form of intensive, exercise-based voice treatment specific to predominately patients with moderate stage Parkinson’s. Subjects who received the treatment—called Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT)—showed significant improvement in vocal loudness and self-perception of communication over an alternative form of speech treatment called Artic and no treatment. Though this study predominantly focused on those with moderate stage Parkinson’s, the researchers point to the benefits of early treatment. While speech disorders are often present in early Parkinson’s, treatment is routinely delayed until the voice is barely audible, speech is unintelligible, and patients have endured significant limitations in their ability to communicate. Treatment delivery should go beyond compensating for deficits experienced by patients in the moderate to late stages of the disease to a preventative approach that allows people to maintain improved quality of life.
  • If God Can Hear Your Most Inner Thoughts, Why Are Praise Bands So Loud? (Nov. 14, 6:30 p.m. CT) and Noise Levels in Nightlife Venues With Live Music (Nov. 14, 12 p.m.)—In two sessions exploring noise levels in vastly different settings, researchers recorded consistently unsafe noise levels that put individuals at risk for noise-induced hearing loss. Increased prevalence of noise-induced hearing loss has been well documented—in part due to increasing use of personal audio technology. Noise levels in public settings are also problematic, including an unexpected place. In the first known study of noise levels in church settings in the United States, researchers measured noise in three Protestant churches in Nebraska. Contemporary “praise band” church service
