Consideration of the listener in the assessment and treatment of dysarthria (2010)
Traditionally, speech production deficits have been the focus of clinical practice and research in dysarthria. However, recent research has begun to examine the role of the listener in communication interaction. This article provides an overview of perceptual processing theory relevant to dysarthria. In addition, it discusses the relationship of current theoretical models of speech perception to the assessment and treatment of dysarthria. Finally, it provides insight into how this information may inform current clinical practices and future research in the field.

Effect of speaker age on speech recognition and perceived listening effort in older adults with hearing loss McAuliffe, M.J.; Wilding, P.J.; Rickard, N.A.; O'Beirne, Greg A. (University of Canterbury. Communication Disorders, 2012)Purpose: Older adults exhibit difficulty understanding speech that has been experimentally degraded. Age-related changes to the speech mechanism lead to natural degradations in signal quality. We tested the hypothesis that ...
