Prestation på nonordsrepetition hos barn med kvarstående talstörning efter 6 års ålder
Sammanfattning: The aim of the present study was to investigate nonword repetition performance in 58 children between 6:0–16:8 years of age with persisting speech sound disorders. The nonword repetition was administered with nonwords from the Swedish test Nya Nelli. Transcriptions of the nonwords were executed and assessed binarily and in percent phonemes correct. The study investigated how age, nonword discrimination, orofacial function and the construction of the nonwords affected the performance of nonword repetition. Correlation was found between word length and performance on nonword repetition. Correlations were also found between age, nonword repetition, nonword discrimination, and orofacial function. Regression analysis showed that nonword discrimination, followed by age and orofacial function explained the variation in performance of nonword repetition and together they explained 35% of the variance. The results show that the task was difficult for this group of children, where co-existing disorders are frequent, and that a numerical assessment is preferable.
