  • Logopedia en entornos bilingües desde un enfoque naturalista
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 16 February 2019Source: Revista de Logopedia, Foniatría y AudiologíaAuthor(s): Silvia Nieva, Lidia Rodríguez, Roussel SolennResumenEn los últimos años, en los que la logopedia ha evolucionado desde paradigmas más tradicionales a enfoques socioconstructivistas, se hace especialmente necesaria una revisión de la intervención logopédica con niños bilingües. El principal reto para la intervención logopédica en población bilingüe consiste en ofrecer una respuesta situada y significativa, tanto para el niño como para su familia en los diferentes entornos en los que se produce la interacción. Una primera cuestión que se plantea es cómo realizar la evaluación logopédica de una población bilingüe para determinar las competencias generales en las dos lenguas que utiliza. La literatura muestra que las pruebas estandarizadas diseñadas para niños monolingües no son totalmente válidas para poblaciones bilingües. Se recomienda, por tanto, una evaluación holística de las competencias de cada lengua realizada en un entorno natural de uso comunicativo. Otra cuestión importante es la elección adecuada de la lengua en la que se interviene. La tendencia actual en la intervención es recomendar un enfoque bilingüe, a pesar de que algunos profesionales siguen proponiendo y realizando abordajes monolingües, bien por no dominar la otra lengua, bien por no conocer en profundidad la evidencia actualizada. Este trabajo pretende, precisamente, facilitar al logopeda un acercamiento a los últimos estudios sobre intervención naturalista con entornos bilingües y la intervención centrada en la persona y su familia. Los resultados sugieren que la intervención centrada en la familia es un enfoque que permite empoderar a las familias para apoyar de manera significativa el desarrollo comunicativo de sus hijos. Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) has evolved from a traditional to a socio-constructivist approach over the last years. Consequently, it is now necessary to review the intervention with bilingual children. The main challenge for the SLT working with bilingual population is to offer a situated and meaningful response for both the children and their families in the different environments where interaction takes place. The first question to be solved is how to develop an evaluation of a bilingual population in order to determine the general competences in both languages. Literature shows that standardised tests designed for monolingual children are not valid for bilingual population. Therefore, it is recommended to use a holistic evaluation of each languagés competence carried out in a natural environment of communicative use. Another important issue is the choice of the language in which intervention is going to be developed. The current trend in SLT intervention is to recommend a bilingual approach; however, some professionals are still using monolingual approaches. There are several reasons for this approach: professionals may not have sufficient abilities in the other language or may not have read the latest publications in the field. This work tries, precisely, to facilitate the access to the latest works about naturalistic intervention in bilingual settings and to offer a framework in personal and family-centred intervention. Results suggest that family-centred intervention is an approach that allows to empowering families to significantly support their children's communicative development.
       
  • Deterioro de la memoria visuoespacial en estadios 2 y 3 de la enfermedad
           de Parkinson
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 23 January 2019Source: Revista de Logopedia, Foniatría y AudiologíaAuthor(s): María Soledad Sandoval, Nicole Clause, Magdalena Cancino, Patricia Mora, Pamela Mundaca, Constanza Pantoja, Romina Rojas, Victoria ValdésResumenObjetivoLa enfermedad de Parkinson no solo suele relacionarse con dificultades motoras sino también con deterioro cognitivo. En este sentido, cabe preguntarse si las funciones cognitivas relacionadas con información visuoespacial se ven afectadas a medida que aumenta la severidad de la enfermedad.MétodoA partir de la evaluación y análisis del procesamiento y la memoria visuoespacial mediante el test Figura compleja de Rey-Osterrieth en 27 sujetos con enfermedad de Parkinson en estadios 2 y 3 se pretenden establecer diferencias según el estadio.ResultadosLos resultados evidencian diferencias significativas en la memoria visuoespacial, lo que podría indicar que la evolución de la enfermedad parece determinar la severidad de la alteración cognitiva, principalmente en lo que respecta a memoria visuoespacial.ConclusiónA partir de los resultados, se sugiere incorporar evaluaciones fonoaudiológicas de la información visuoespacial en esta población con el fin de diseñar planes terapéuticos enfocados en el déficit neuropsicológico. ObjectiveParkinson's disease is not only related to motor difficulties but also to cognitive impairmet. Hence, it is worth knowing if the cognitive functions related to visuospatial information are affected as the severity of the disease increases.MethodThis study intends to establish differences according to the Parkinson's disease stage from evaluation and analysis of visuospatial information in 27 patients using the Complex figure of Rey-Osterrieth test.ResultsThe results show significant differences in the visuospatial memory between both groups, which could indicates that the evolution of the disease seems to determine the severity of the cognitive alteration, mainly with regard to visuospatial memory.ConclusionThe results suggest to incorporate visuospatial information in speech-language evaluations of Parkinson's disease patients in order to design therapeutic plans focused on the neuropsychological deficit.
       
  • Consideraciones para la intervención de los apoyos de la comunicación y
           el lenguaje en la escuela inclusiva
    • Abstract: Publication date: January–March 2019Source: Revista de Logopedia, Foniatría y Audiología, Volume 39, Issue 1Author(s): Juan Jorge Muntaner GuaspResumenLa evolución de la integración educativa hacia el paradigma de la inclusión representa un cambio radical en la perspectiva de análisis de la realidad de las escuelas, en cuanto a la diversidad del alumnado, y de las propuestas de intervención que se centran ahora no en los déficits y limitaciones del individuo, sino en las oportunidades y alternativas que les ofrece el contexto. La puesta en práctica del modelo inclusivo requiere la creación de equipos docentes, que incluyan al profesorado de apoyo como elemento clave para el desarrollo del proyecto. Miembros de este equipo de apoyo son los especialistas en comunicación y lenguaje, que plantean, en un modelo de educación inclusiva, una intervención no de carácter clínico ni terapéutico ni aislado, sino integral que considera el entorno natural del aula como clave para el proceso de adquisición y desarrollo de la capacidad lingüística y comunicativa de todos los alumnos. Este modelo de intervención tiene en el trabajo en equipo y la colaboración el elemento fundamental para garantizar el éxito en la implementación y desarrollo del modelo de la educación inclusiva, que plantea la necesidad de ofrecer propuestas coordinadas entre el apoyo y el tutor a partir de dimensiones y áreas curriculares comunes para trabajar la diversidad del alumnado en cuento a la comunicación y el lenguaje, que potencien y trabajen elementos válidos para todos e imprescindibles para algunos. The evolution of educational integration towards a paradigm of inclusiveness represents a radical change in the perspective of analysing school reality with regard to student diversity and intervention proposals, focused now not on individual shortcomings and limitations, but on the opportunities and alternatives offered to them in this context. Putting an inclusive model into practice requires setting up teaching teams, including support for teachers as a key element to implement the project. Members of this support team are specialists in communication and language which they suggest, in an inclusive education model, an intervention without a clinical, therapeutic or isolated nature, but rather as an integral part that takes into account the natural setting of the classroom as key for the process of acquiring and developing linguistic and communication skills amongst all students. Teamwork and collaboration are the key elements of this intervention model to ensure the inclusive education model is successfully implemented and rolled out. It includes the need to offer coordinated proposals between the support and tutor staff based on curricular dimensions and areas to work on student diversity regarding communication and language, which strengthen and work on elements that are valid for all students and which are essential for some.
       
  • Calidad de vida en personas con disartria
    • Abstract: Publication date: January–March 2019Source: Revista de Logopedia, Foniatría y Audiología, Volume 39, Issue 1Author(s): Catalina Aceituno, Sofía Aranda, Gisselle Palma, Catalina Pino, Pedro Villegas, Camilo Quezada, Lilian Toledo-RodríguezResumenIntroducciónLa disartria corresponde a un trastorno adquirido del habla de origen neurológico. Habitualmente, la evaluación se centra en describir los procesos motores del habla afectados, las características perceptuales y determinar el grado de severidad a través de la inteligibilidad del habla. Pocas veces se explora el impacto de este trastorno sobre la calidad de vida de la persona.MétodoSe realizó un estudio cuantitativo, no experimental, transversal, descriptivo y correlacional. Se evaluaron 21 personas con disartria (51.04 ± 13.06 años, 13 hombres) con el protocolo de evaluación de habla para pacientes disártricos y el cuestionario autoadministrado de calidad de vida en hablantes disártricos (QOL-Dys).ResultadosLas personas con disartria ven alterada su calidad de vida. Hay una correlación significativa con el grado de severidad de la disartria (r = -.5, p =.02). La inteligibilidad predice de manera significativa el puntaje en el cuestionario de calidad de vida total (R2 =.2, p =.04). El puntaje más bajo se presenta en la percepción de la reacción de los otros (1.66 ± 12.93), y el más alto en enfrentarse a situaciones difíciles (24.38 ± 9.12).ConclusiónLa disartria afecta la calidad de vida de las personas. Se recomienda su evaluación para mejorar la intervención en estas personas. IntroductionDysarthria is an acquired motor speech disorder of neurological origin. Usually assessment focuses on describing the affected motor processes of speech, perceptual characteristics and determining the degree of severity through speech intelligibility, but rarely explores the impact it has on the quality of life of the person.MethodA quantitative, non-experimental, cross-sectional, descriptive and correlational study was performed. Twenty-one patients with dysarthria (51.04 ± 13.06 years, 13 men) were evaluated with the speech assessment protocol for dysarthric patients and the self-administered quality of life questionnaire for dysarthric speakers (QOL-Dys).ResultsThe quality of life of people with dysarthria is affected (QOL), which correlates significantly with the degree of severity of the dysarthria (r = -.5, p = .02). Intelligibility significantly predicts the score of the total quality of life questionnaire (R2 =.2, p = .04). The lowest score occurred in the perception of the reaction of the others (16.66 ± 12.93), and the highest in dealing with difficult situations (24.38 ± 9.12).ConclusionQuality of life is affected in people with dysarthria, its assessment is recommended to improve intervention in these people.
       
  • Modificación del índice de perturbación vocal integrado mediante
           terapia de voz en personas con disfonía funcional en Santiago de Cali,
           Colombia
    • Abstract: Publication date: January–March 2019Source: Revista de Logopedia, Foniatría y Audiología, Volume 39, Issue 1Author(s): Alejandro Rodríguez Campo, María Esperanza Sastoque, Claudia GómezResumenIntroducciónLa terapia de voz es una práctica que no está ampliamente fundamentada en la evidencia investigativa; la valoración y el seguimiento de los programas de rehabilitación se apoyan casi exclusivamente en el análisis perceptual y pocas evaluaciones acústicas reportan medidas que no se han interrelacionado entre sí para determinar grados de riesgo vocal en diferentes poblaciones con disfonía.El objetivo de esta investigación fue valorar acústicamente el efecto de 2 tipos de terapia vocal (mixta y directa) en personas con disfonía funcional empleando el índice de perturbación vocal integrado.MétodoSe seleccionó una muestra de 20 personas entre los 20 y 60 años con disfonía funcional; se evaluó toda la muestra mediante análisis acústico con el software Anagraf y se fraccionó la muestra en 2 grupos, el primero recibió terapia vocal mixta y el segundo únicamente terapia vocal directa. Se evaluaron acústicamente las voces, posterior a la terapia, y se comparó el efecto de los 2 tipos de intervención propuestos.ResultadosEl índice de perturbación vocal integrado se encontró alterado para la mayor parte de la muestra de ambos grupos, preterapia vocal. Finalizada la terapia tanto mixta como directa, se encontró que este índice clasificó voces en rangos de normalidad y voces en riesgo disminuyendo su grado de alteración.ConclusiónEl índice de perturbación vocal integrado se modificó favorablemente para ambos grupos de terapia. No obstante, esta modificación fue estadísticamente significativa para el grupo que realizó terapia vocal mixta. IntroductionVoice therapy is a practice that is not extensively based on research evidence; the assessment and monitoring of rehabilitation programmes are generally based on perceptual analysis, and few acoustic measures have not been correlated with each other to determine the extent of vocal risk among different kinds of populations with dysphonia.The aim of this research was the acoustic assessment of the effect of 2 types of voice therapy (mixed and direct) in individuals with functional dysphonia using the integrated vocal disturbance index.MethodA sample of 20 functional dysphonic individuals aged between 20 and 60 years was selected. The individuals were assessed through an acoustic analysis using Anagraf software. The sample was split into 2 groups; the first one received mixed voice therapy and the second only received direct voice therapy. The post-therapy voices were acoustically assessed, comparing the effect of the techniques proposed.ResultsThe integrated vocal disturbance index was found to be altered for most of the individuals in both groups before receiving voice therapy. On completion of the mixed and direct voice therapy, it was found that the index classified the voices into normal and at risk, decreasing their extent of disturbance.ConclusionThe integrated vocal disturbance index was favourably modified for both therapy groups. However, this was statistically more significant for the group that received mixed voice therapy.
       
  • Eficacia de un programa de fluidez lectora con escolares disléxicos
    • Abstract: Publication date: January–March 2019Source: Revista de Logopedia, Foniatría y Audiología, Volume 39, Issue 1Author(s): Natalia Ferrada Quezada, Paula Outón OviedoResumenAntecedentes y objetivoUna de las dificultades más comunes en la dislexia es la falta de fluidez lectora. Esta dificultad consiste en leer un texto con mucho esfuerzo, empleando excesivo tiempo y sin la expresión adecuada. El tratamiento de esta dificultad ha comprendido diversas estrategias, siendo la lectura oral repetida una de las más utilizadas. Los objetivos de este estudio fueron comprobar la eficacia de un programa de fluidez lectora centrado en la lectura repetida y expresiva de textos teatrales y determinar si su efectividad depende de la realidad sociocultural y económica de los estudiantes.MétodoEn el estudio participaron 11 estudiantes de tercero y cuarto curso de educación primaria con dislexia, distribuidos en dos grupos según el centro educativo de procedencia (público o concertado). Para comprobar la eficacia del programa se optó por un diseño preexperimental pretest postest. Como variables dependientes de la fluidez se utilizaron la exactitud, la automatización y la prosodia, medidas a través de la lectura de textos teatrales, la prueba Fundar y una Escala de Apreciación de la Prosodia.ResultadosLos resultados mostraron que los participantes mejoraron significativamente en automatización y prosodia, pero no tanto en exactitud lectora. Además, el programa obtuvo resultados similares en ambos grupos de estudiantes.ConclusionesEstos hallazgos coinciden con otros estudios y sugieren que la lectura de textos teatrales es una estrategia eficaz para la mejora de la fluidez lectora en el alumnado disléxico de estas edades. Background and objectiveOne of the most common difficulties for dyslexics is the lack of reading fluency. This difficulty involves a lot of effort in order to read a text, spending an excessive amount of time, and with a lack of expressiveness. For the treatment of this difficulty, several strategies have been considered, repeated reading being the most commonly used. The aims of this study are to determine the effectiveness of an intervention programme aimed at improving reading fluency through theatre scripts, and observe whether the results depend upon students’ sociocultural and economic background.MethodThe sample consisted of 11 third- and fourth-grade students with dyslexia distributed into two groups according to the educational centre of provenance (public or charter school). A pre-experimental design pre-test and post-test study approach was used to prove the effectiveness of the programme. Automation and prosody were evaluated as accuracy-dependent variables through the reading of theatrical texts, the Fundar Reading Proficiency test, and a Scale of Prosody Assessment.ResultsResults indicate that children improved significantly in automation and prosody, but not that much in reading accuracy. Furthermore, the programme obtained similar results in both groups.ConclusionsThese findings match other studies and suggest that the reading of theatrical texts is an effective strategy for improving reading fluency in dyslexic students of this age group.

           lenguaje de lactantes prematuros con riesgo de daño cerebral
    • Abstract: Publication date: January–March 2019Source: Revista de Logopedia, Foniatría y Audiología, Volume 39, Issue 1Author(s): Amaya Soberón, María Elizabeth Mónica Carlier, Claudia Jiménez, Thalía Harmony, Lauren M. CycykResumenIntroducciónLa interacción temprana madre-hijo es crítica para el desarrollo adecuado del lactante; sin embargo, la interacción de los padres con los lactantes prematuros presenta una dificultad particular por las circunstancias que acompañan un nacimiento prematuro, como son los factores de riesgo de daño cerebral, y la necesidad de estimulación temprana tanto motora como cognitiva que demandan estos bebés. Se ha observado que los programas educativos tienen efectos positivos en los padres de lactantes prematuros ya que mejoran los resultados de sus hijos en evaluaciones motrices, cognitivas y del lenguaje.MétodoEn este trabajo se examina el efecto de un programa de educación para padres para estimular el desarrollo de las habilidades comunicativas de los lactantes prematuros. Se examinó cómo cambió la interacción padres-hijo después del programa de intervención. Adicionalmente, se compararon los resultados de las evaluaciones de lenguaje de los niños, hijos de los padres que participaron en el programa de intervención comparados con niños pares, hijos de padres que no participaron en dicho programa.ResultadosEl programa contribuyó a cambiar la interacción de los padres con los lactantes y a mejorar los puntajes en las evaluaciones posteriores del lenguaje de sus hijos.ConclusiónSe recomienda la participación de los padres de niños prematuros en programas de educación para padres para estimular el desarrollo del lenguaje de sus hijos. IntroductionEarly mother-child interaction is critical for proper infant development; however, the interaction of parents with preterm infants presents a particular difficulty due to the circumstances that accompany premature birth, such as risk factors for brain damage and the early motor and cognitive stimulation that these infants demand. It has been observed that educational programmes have positive effects on the parents of preterm infants as they improve the outcomes of their children in motor, cognitive and language assessments.MethodThis paper examines the effect of a parent education programme designed to stimulate the development of the early communicative skills of preterm infants. We examined how the parent-child interaction changed following the intervention programme. In addition, the results of the language evaluations of the children whose parents participated in the intervention programme and those whose parents did not participate were compared.ResultsThe programme helped to change the interaction of parents with their infants and to improve scores in the children's subsequent language assessments.ConclusionParents of premature children are encouraged to participate in parent education programmes to encourage the development of their child's language abilities.
       
  • La fluidez verbal en personas mayores y su relación con variables
           psicosociales y de funcionamiento cognitivo

Así, los estudios han demostrado que, en comparación con ancianos sanos, las personas con demencia muestran un deterioro significativo en fluidez verbal —especialmente en fluidez semántica— incluso después de controlar estadísticamente variables como la edad y el nivel educativo.ObjetivoEl objetivo del estudio realizado es analizar la ejecución de personas mayores en una tarea de fluidez semántica y relacionarla con su rendimiento en otras tareas cognitivas (memoria de trabajo, atención y una prueba de screening), así como determinar la influencia de variables como el nivel educativo, la edad y el sexo en el rendimiento en la tarea de fluidez.MétodoEn el estudio han participado un total de 264 personas con una edad media de 79.57 años de la provincia de Granada. Los participantes han sido evaluados con una entrevista estructurada de variables psicosociales, una batería de evaluación neuropsicológica que incluye pruebas de fluidez, memoria, atención, y funcionamiento cognitivo general.ResultadosLos resultados muestran diferencias significativas en fluidez verbal en función del estatus cognitivo de las personas y del rango de edad. Igualmente se observan correlaciones significativas entre la fluidez y el resto de pruebas cognitivas aplicadas, siendo una prueba de screening cognitivo la que mejor predice la ejecución en fluidez.ConclusionesLos datos obtenidos corroboran la importancia de la utilización de pruebas de fluidez en la evaluación psicológica de las personas mayores. IntroductionThe analysis of verbal fluency in old age has been one of the main strategies as part of the diagnosis of dementia. Thus, studies have shown that, compared to healthy elderly people, those with dementia show a significant deterioration in verbal fluency —especially in semantic fluency— even after the statistical control of variables such as age and educational level.ObjectiveThe objective of the study is to analyze the performance of older people in a task of semantic fluency and relate it to their performance in other cognitive tasks (working memory, attention task and a screening test) as well as to determine the influence of variables such as educational level, age and gender in the fluency task performance.MethodA total of 264 people with an average age of 79.57 years from the province of Granada participated in the study. Participants were evaluated with a structured interview of psychosocial variables, a battery of neuropsychological assessment that included tests of fluency, memory, attention, and general cognitive functioning.ResultsThe results showed significant differences in verbal fluency based on the cognitive status of the persons and the age range. Likewise, significant correlations were observed between fluency and the rest of past cognitive tests, the cognitive screening test being the best predictor of fluency performance.ConclusionsThe data obtained corroborate the importance of the use of fluency tests in the psychological assessment of the elderly.
       
  • Fiabilidad y validez del cuestionario observacional de las conductas de

Con el objetivo de disponer de un instrumento que recoja las características y severidad de dichas dificultades, se ha diseñado un cuestionario observacional de conductas alimentarias y se ha estudiado su fiabilidad y validez.Material y métodosPara el diseño del cuestionario se han consultado las principales referencias actualizadas. Se ha definido un cuestionario formado por 8 apartados: historia clínica, características orofaciales, características intraorales, sensibilidad, reflejos orales, respiración, alimentación y características de la alimentación. Se observó el comportamiento alimentario de una muestra de 100 neonatos en el Hospital Clínic-Maternitat de Barcelona.ResultadosLos resultados mostraron una buena fiabilidad del cuestionario presentando un valor alfa de Cronbach de .891 y una correlación con el test Apgar de .63. Así como el conjunto de apartados, en los que encontramos correlaciones positivas que oscilan entre un .38 y un .54. Con el objetivo de valorar la sensibilidad se ha calculado el estadístico ANOVA de cada uno de los apartados y del total para cada nivel de prematuridad. Se han encontrado diferencias significativas en todos los apartados del cuestionario. Por último, para valorar la capacidad discriminativa del cuestionario COCANP con relación a los bebés prematuros o a término, se calculó el área bajo curva con un resultado de .979, que consideramos muy alto.ConclusiónEl cuestionario COCANP se ha evidenciado como un instrumento fiable y de validez para las características de los patrones de alimentación del bebé prematuro. ObjectiveThere is a known concern about feeding difficulties in preterm infants. In order to have an instrument that collects the characteristics and severity of these difficulties, an observational questionnaire on feeding behaviors has been designed and its reliability and validity have been examined.Material and methodsThe main updated references were consulted for the design of the protocol. A questionnaire has been defined consisting of 8 sections: medical history, orofacial features, intraoral features, sensitivity, oral reflexes, breathing, feeding and feeding features.The feeding behavior of a sample of 100 neonates was observed in the Hospital Clínic-Maternitat de Barcelona.ResultsThe results showed a good reliability of the questionnaire presenting a score of Cronbach's Alpha of .891 and a correlation with the Apgar test of .63, as well as the set of sections, in which we find positive correlations that range between .38 and .54. In order to assess sensitivity, the ANOVA statistic for each of the sections and the total for each level of prematurity has been calculated. Significant differences have been found in all the sections of the questionnaire. Finally, to assess the discriminative capacity of the COCANP questionnaire in connection with premature or full-term babies, the area under the curve was calculated with a result of .979, which we consider very high.ConclusionThe COCANP questionnaire has proven to be a reliable and valid tool for the features of the premature baby's feeding patterns.
       
  • A real-time silent speech system for voice restoration after total
           laryngectomy
    • Abstract: Publication date: October–December 2018Source: Revista de Logopedia, Foniatría y Audiología, Volume 38, Issue 4Author(s): Jose A. Gonzalez, Phil D. Green Background and aimIndividuals who have lost their voice following a laryngectomy as a treatment for cancer will inevitably struggle with their daily communication. Unfortunately, the current methods for speaking after laryngectomy all have limitations, either because of the poor acoustics generated by these methods or because they are potentially harmful. The aim of this work is thus to explore an alternative method for post-laryngectomy voice restoration in which the movement of the intact articulators is captured and then converted into audible speech using machine learning techniques.Materials and methodsTo demonstrate the feasibility of speech generation from captured articulator movement, 6 healthy adults were recruited. For each subject, both the speech acoustics and the subject's articulator movements were recorded simultaneously. Articulator movements were captured using a technique known as permanent magnet articulography (PMA), in which small magnets are attached to the articulators (typically tongue and lips) and the magnetic field generated by the magnets is captured with sensors located close to the mouth. Deep artificial neural networks were then used to model the mapping between the sensor data and the speech acoustics, thus, enabling the synthesis of speech from captured articulatory data.ResultsThe proposed silent speech system is able to generate speech that sounds natural, resembles the subject's own voice and is fairly intelligible (up to 92% intelligibility for some speakers on a phonetically-rich corpus).ConclusionsWith further research, the proposed system could in future be a real option to restore lost voice after laryngectomy.ResumenAntecedentes y objetivoAquellas personas que han perdido su voz después de una laringectomía se ven limitadas irremediablemente en su comunicación diaria. A pesar de existir en la actualidad métodos para recuperar el habla tras la laringectomía, todos ellos presentan limitaciones. El objetivo de este trabajo es explorar un método alternativo para hablar tras la laringectomía, en el que el movimiento de los órganos de la voz se transforma en una señal acústica utilizando técnicas de aprendizaje automático.Materiales y métodosEn esta investigación participaron 6 adultos sanos. Para cada sujeto se grabó tanto su voz como los movimientos de sus labios y lengua. Los movimientos de los órganos del habla fueron capturados usando una técnica conocida como Articulografía de Imán Permanente (PMA), en la cual pequeños imanes se colocan sobre estos órganos y el campo magnético generado por los imanes se captura usando unos sensores sensibles al campo magnético. Se utilizaron redes neuronales artificiales profundas para modelar la transformación entre los datos de los sensores y la acústica de la voz.ResultadosEl sistema de habla silenciosa propuesto es capaz de generar voz que suena natural, se asemeja a la propia voz del sujeto y es inteligible (hasta un 92% de inteligibilidad para algunos sujetos).ConclusionesEl sistema propuesto podría ser en el futuro una opción viable para restaurar la voz tras una laringectomía total.

           amiotrófica
    • Abstract: Publication date: October–December 2018Source: Revista de Logopedia, Foniatría y Audiología, Volume 38, Issue 4Author(s): Andrea Belén Sánchez Sánchez, Elena María Planells del PozoResumenAntecedentesLa esclerosis lateral amiotrófica es una enfermedad neurodegenerativa rara y de rápido progreso que causa un deterioro en las motoneuronas de la corteza cerebral, tronco encefálico (bulbo) y la médula espinal. Entre las alteraciones más comunes se encuentra la disartria y otros problemas logopédicos que requieren de una intervención de la que actualmente no existen protocolos.ObjetivoEl objetivo de este estudio es crear un protocolo de evaluación de disartria en pacientes con esclerosis lateral amiotrófica en español, que evalúe la respiración, fonación, articulación, resonancia en estos pacientes, para obtener con exactitud los aspectos afectados de cada paciente y elaborar un tratamiento que se adapte al paciente.Materiales y métodosEl estudio se realiza con 3 pacientes de esclerosis lateral amiotrófica bulbar con un estado leve-moderado de la enfermedad. Para la evaluación se utilizaron un protocolo breve de evaluación de la disartria y el protocolo de evaluación de la disartria elaborado para este trabajo.ResultadosTras la evaluación final se comprobó una mejoría en todos los apartados evaluados tras la intervención. Con el protocolo mejorado, se obtuvieron mejores resultados en los distintos apartados.ConclusionesLos resultados obtenidos han sido óptimos debido a la utilización del protocolo adaptado a las necesidades y a la aplicación de tratamientos específicos que producen una evolución positiva de la enfermedad. BackgroundAmyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a rare, rapidly progressing neurodegenerative disease that causes deterioration in the motor neurons of the cerebral cortex, brainstem, and spinal cord. Among the most common disorders are dysarthria and other logopaedic problems that require intervention for which there are currently no protocols.ObjectiveThe objective of this study is to create a protocol for the evaluation of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in Spanish, which evaluates respiration, phonation, articulation, and resonance in these patients, in order to accurately obtain the symptoms of each patient and a develop a treatment adapted to the patient.Materials and methodsThe study was carried out with 3 patients with bulbar amyotrophic lateral sclerosis with a mild-moderate state of the disease. For evaluation, a short protocol to assess dysarthria and the protocol for evaluating dysarthria prepared for this study were used.ResultsAfter the final evaluation, an improvement was observed in all the sections evaluated after the intervention. With the improved protocol, better results were obtained in the different sections.ConclusionsThe results were optimal due to the use of the protocol adapted to needs and the application of specific treatments that have a positive effect on the outcome of the disease.
       
  • La resonancia del cante flamenco: un estudio acústico y comparativo
           con el canto clásico
    • Abstract: Publication date: October–December 2018Source: Revista de Logopedia, Foniatría y Audiología, Volume 38, Issue 4Author(s): Marina Garzón, Juana MuñozResumenEn la evaluación vocal del cantante no basta con diagnosticar si existe resonancia, sino qué cualidad tiene. Una voz resonada tiene un amplio contenido armónico y puede lograrse con técnicas diversas.ObjetivoValidar la hipótesis del tenor Alfredo Krauss, que plantea que el cantaor flamenco utiliza los senos paranasales con objeto de naturalizar el sonido, denominándola «técnica de la i», pues se logra igualando los sonidos al de esta vocal. Tradujimos esta hipótesis a parámetros acústicos utilizando la singing power ratio (SPR) como medida de resonancia de diferentes vocales.MétodoLa muestra se dividió en: a) grupo experimental flamenco (GEF), compuesto por 23 cantaores reclutados en la Fundación Cristina Heeren de arte flamenco, en la escuela de flamenco El Garrotín y en la escuela Reina Sofía de Granada, y b) grupo control clásico (GCC), compuesto por 21 cantantes clásicos de los conservatorios superiores de música Cristóbal de Morales de Sevilla y Victoria Eugenia de Granada. Todos los participantes contaban con más de dos años de práctica. Se calculó el SPR en fonación sostenida cantada con el algoritmo de la transformada rápida de Fourier para las vocales /a/, /i/, /u/ y se realizó una comparativa entre grupos mediante un ANOVA.ResultadosSe encontraron diferencias significativas exclusivamente en la vocal /i/, donde el GEF obtuvo mayores valores de resonancia que el GCC (con una diferencia de hasta 7 dB).ConclusionesEl apoyo del sonido en la vocal /i/ indica cómo colocan el tracto vocal los cantaores para amplificar su sonido, tal y como postula Krauss. Por tanto, la técnica de colocación en el flamenco difiere de la del clásico. In a singeŕs vocal assessment it is not sufficient to diagnose the existence of resonance without also specifying its quality. A resonated voice has a broad harmonic content and can be achieved in many ways.ObjectiveTo analyze and validate Alfredo Krausśs hypothesis on the use of paranasal sinuses by flamenco singers, in order to naturalize voice sound, also called “/i/ technique”, equalizing all sounds based on this vowel. We translated this hypothesis into acoustic parameters using Singing Power Ratio (SPR) as a resonance measure of different vowels.MethodParticipants were divided into: a) Flamenco Experimental Group (FEG), 23 flamenco singers recruited from the Cristina Heeren Foundation in Seville, Garrotín Flamenco School and Reina Sofía Flamenco School in Granada, and b) Classical Control Group (CCG), 21 classical singers from the Cristobal de Morales conservatory in Seville and Victoria Eugenia conservatory in Granada. All the participants had over 2 years of experience. The SPR was calculated in sustained phonation tasks using Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT) algorithm for the vowels /a/, /i/, /u/. A comparative assessment between the groups was made using ANOVA.ResultsSignificant differences were found only in /i/, where the FEG obtained higher resonance values than CCG (up to 7 bB difference).ConclusionsSound support in the vowel /i/ indicates how flamenco singers place vocal tract to amplify voice sound during singing, as Krauss suggests. Therefore, flamenco singers’ resonance technique differs from the classical.
       
  • Lectura, ortografía y habilidades fonológicas de estudiantes sordos con
           y sin implante coclear
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 17 September 2018Source: Revista de Logopedia, Foniatría y AudiologíaAuthor(s): Virginia González, Ana-Belén DomínguezResumenIntroducciónEl objetivo del trabajo fue determinar el papel de los códigos ortográficos y fonológicos en el aprendizaje de la lectura en estudiantes sordos con y sin implante coclear (IC). Se analizaron varias cuestiones: 1) si la calidad de las representaciones fonológicas que poseen y su capacidad para manipularlas depende o no del uso de IC; 2) si los niveles lectores que alcanzan dependen de la calidad de las representaciones fonológicas, y 3) si las representaciones ortográficas que almacenan provienen de las representaciones fonológicas correspondientes.MetodologíaParticiparon 172 estudiantes sordos con edades entre los 6 y los 18 años, divididos en 4 grupos: alumnos con IC precoz, alumnos con IC tardío, alumnos sin IC con sordera moderada y alumnos sin IC con sordera profunda. Como grupo control, participó un grupo de 797 oyentes de igual edad. Todos fueron evaluados con una prueba de lectura, una de ortografía y 3 de metafonología.ResultadosLos resultados muestran que los IC, sobre todo los colocados precozmente (antes de 30 meses), conducen a mejores resultados en todas las tareas experimentales. En el extremo opuesto encontramos el grupo con sordera profunda sin IC. Las representaciones ortográficas parecen almacenarse utilizando las representaciones fonológicas correspondientes, que a su vez mejoran gracias a la información ortográfica proporcionada por la actividad de lectura en sí.Discusión y conclusionesSe discute la necesidad de establecer una enseñanza explícita y sistemática en habilidades metafonológicas antes y durante la enseñanza de lectura de los estudiantes sordos. IntroductionThe objective of this study was to determine the role of orthographic and phonological codes in deaf students learning to read with and without cochlear implant (CI). Several questions were analyzed: 1) whether the quality of the phonological representations they possess and their ability to manipulate them depends or not on the use of CI; 2) whether the reading levels they reach depend on the quality of the phonological representations; and 3) whether the orthographic representations they store come from the corresponding phonological representations.MethodologyParticipating in the study were 172 deaf students aged between 6 and 18 years, divided into 4 groups: students with early CI, students with late CI, students without CI and moderate hearing loss and students without CI and profound hearing loss. As a control group, a group of 797 listeners of the same age participated. All were evaluated with a reading test, a spelling test and 3 metaphonology tests.ResultsThe results show that the CIs, especially those fitted early (before 30 months), lead to better results in all experimental tasks. The group with profound deafness without CI were at the opposite extreme. The orthographic representations seem to be stored using the corresponding phonological representations, which in turn improve thanks to the orthographic information provided by the reading activity itself.Discussion and conclusionsThe need to establish an explicit and systematic training in metaphonological skills before and during the reading instruction of deaf students is discussed.
