Profile

Hayo Terband is a spoken language teacher/researcher collaborating with linguists, speech-language pathologists, neurologists, audiologists, psychologists, and neurophysiologists. His research revolves around the developmental process of the speech production and perception system in both normal and disordered development, in which he combines behavioural experiments with neurocomputational modelling. Besides fundamental research, he also works on clinical applications and co-initiated the development and implementation of a process-oriented method for diagnostics and treatment planning of developmental speech disorders.

Running projects

 1.    Modelling processing deficits in developmental speech sound disorders.

Little is known about the neurological deficits and the linguistic processes that underlie the wide variety of symptoms that are found in developmental speech sound disorders. This forms a major bottleneck for diagnosis and treatment. The fundamental problem in isolating the underlying deficits is the developmental interaction between the different linguistic levels of processing. For example, poor articulation of particular speech sounds affects the patient’s perceptual acuity for contrasts involving these speech sounds. Individual patients vary widely in these developmental interaction patterns, and the effects of developmental interaction between linguistic levels on individual development is largely unknown.

In previous work, I used a modelling approach to address this problem. It was demonstrated that, by manipulating parameters independently and systematically, computational modelling studies can provide a unique insight into the relationship between core deficit, derived or consequential deficits, and adaptive strategies, and in how all of these express themselves in symptomatology. In particular, this pioneering work showed drastic differences in the linguistic level of a specific speech-motor impairment depending on the ability of the system for auditory self-monitoring, while the clinical expression remained largely the same. The current project expands these modelling studies to higher levels of the speech production process. Based on clinical theories, specific processing deficits will be implemented in the computational model, which will lead to specific predictions regarding a developmental trajectory. These predictions are then tested against speech data from speech production experiments involving children with the hypothesised diagnosis. The results will lead to a breakthrough in our understanding of the mechanisms involved in speech sound disorders. This knowledge is essential for focused and purposeful treatment for children that suffer from these disorders.

 2.    Clinical implementation of a process-oriented diagnostics and treatment planning of complex sensori-motor speech disorders in children.

Speech disorders are estimated to form about 75% of all communication disorders in children. The majority of these children are seen by speech therapists for diagnosis and treatment. A variety of methods of intervention has been developed, aimed at different parts of the speech production process. However, the diagnostic instruments that are currently available consist of tests that measure knowledge and skills. This results in a behavioural (=symptom) description, on which the clinician bases diagnostic classification, treatment program and referral to special education.

This project features the implementation of process-oriented diagnostics and treatment planning in clinical practice. Recent research into the mechanisms behind childhood speech disorders has yielded important insight into the relation between underlying deficits, compensatory adaptations and how these express themselves in symptomatology. The acquired knowledge comprises a wide range of methods for investigating speech production and perception, and the relation between production and perception, forming a solid theoretical basis for an approach based on diagnosing the processes involved in each individual case. This individualistic, process-oriented approach can be achieved through objective measurements of speech production in systematically varied speech tasks under systematically varied conditions and holds important advantages for the diagnosis and treatment of paediatric speech disorders.

 3.    Speech production in adults with intellectual disabilities: Assessment and intervention of dysfluencies and speech intelligibility.

In adults with intellectual disabilities (ID), communication is often troubled by disordered speech and/or impaired hearing. Miscommunication may cause diminished social skills, behavioral problems, and isolation. To improve quality of life, it is essential that adults with intellectual disabilities are able to make themselves understood.

The speech production of adults with ID is characterised in general by poor intelligibility and reduced fluency, however, little is known about the specific speech characteristics behind this. This study sets out to analyse and specify the types of dysfluencies and speech errors in a Dutch sample of adult persons with ID with a mixed aetiology. This type of inventarisation and classification has not yet been employed to speech data of people and is indispensable to determine the best possibilities for improving the fluency and intelligibility of speech production in this population.

Project funded by ZonMW (supportive part of the project “Prevention of communicative decline in adults with intellectual disabilities: assessment and intervention in disordered perceptive and productive functions.”), awarded to Ben Maassen [University of Groningen] and Ad Snik [Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre].

In collaboration with Marjolein Coppens [Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre].
