Abstract

This single case report documents the influence of perceptual and instrumental measurement in a speech intervention program, including palatal lift, for a 12-year-old adolescent with profound dysarthria and severe oropharyngeal dysphagia. Specifically, the use of sentence intelligibility scores, phoneme intelligibility, nasal airflow, and intra-oral air pressure from aerodynamic assessments and direct visualization through nasoendoscopy are highlighted as these measures relate to judgments regarding the effectiveness of an intervention program over a period of approximately 30 months.
