Evidence-Based Systematic Reviews
Widespread Topic Review
ASHA would appreciate member feedback on the topics being considered for Evidence-Based Systematic Reviews (EBSRs). If you have any questions about the topics or the nomination process, please contact N-CEP Director Rob Mullen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-296-8745.
All reviews must be submitted by August 15, 2012.
I would like to provide feedback on the topic:
- The effects of combined phonological awareness and literacy treatment on phonological awareness and literacy skills in kindergarten students with disabilities.
- The effects of neuromuscular electrical stimulation on swallowing physiology, pulmonary health, functional swallowing outcomes, drooling/secretion management and neural activation during swallowing in children with dysphagia.
- The impact of oral-motor interventions on swallowing physiology, pulmonary health, functional swallowing outcomes and drooling/secretion management in children age 1+ with dysphagia.
- The impact of behavioral dysphagia interventions on swallowing physiology, functional swallowing and pulmonary health in adults with dysphagia secondary to TBI.
- The impact of behavioral dysphagia interventions on swallowing physiology, functional swallowing and pulmonary health in adults with dysphagia secondary to esophageal or head and neck cancer.
- The effects of brain games (e.g., crossword puzzles, video games, scrabble) on life satisfaction, cognition, executive function and social interaction in adults with cognitive communication impairments secondary to TBI.
- The effect of voice therapy on instrumental voice assessment measures and functional outcome measures in adult head and neck cancer patients with a voice disorder.
- The effect of behavioral voice therapy on paradoxical vocal fold motion, instrumental voice assessment measures and functional outcome measures in children with vocal chord dysfunction.
- The effects of group versus individual treatment on communication impairment and communication activity/participation measures in adults with aphasia.
- The impact of computer-based language treatments on receptive/expressive impairment measures, receptive/expressive activity/participation measures and quality of life measures in adults with aphasia.
- The effect of free water protocols on aspiration pneumonia in patients with dysphagia in long-term care or other settings that are not acute rehab.
- The reliability and validity of self-reported functional communication questionnaires and quality of life questionnaires for adults with or at risk for aphasia.
- The impact of auditory comprehensive treatment on receptive language impairment and activity/participation level outcomes in adults with stroke-induced aphasia.
- The impact of SLP treatment delivered via telehealth setting on receptive/expressive impairment level outcomes and activity/participation level outcomes in adults with stroke-induced aphasia.
- The effect of auditory verbal therapy on vocabulary, expressive language and receptive language in children birth to five years with a permanent hearing loss.
- The effectiveness of behavioral treatments in decreasing type or perceived loudness of tinnitus either short term or complete remission in adults with chronic tinnitus.
- The impact of pragmatic social skills training on improved language and cognition outcomes in children with autism.
- Various strategies for increasing follow-up for re-screen/assessment in newborns who failed initial hearing screening.
- Use of dysphagia management based on videofluoroscopic swallow study versus dysphagia management that is not based on an instrumental assessment to identify the risk of respiratory complications (e.g. aspiration pneumonia) resulting from oropharyngeal dysphagia in adults who are at risk for oropharyngeal dysphagia subsequent to stroke.
- The use of cycles, minimal pairs and LIPS to assess intelligibility in school-age children with intellectual disabilities.
