The ADAAPT Study

We are developing a new assessment tool for speech disorders in children and adolescents. The tool is called "ADAAPT: Assessment of Dysarthria, Articulation, Apraxia, Phonology with Treatment Planning." The tool aims to streamline the diagnosis of speech disorders to inform best treatment options.

We are looking for participants:

  • based in Australia
  • aged 3-16 years
  • who use speech for 2 or more word phrases, and
  • may have speech difficulties as a result of cerebral palsy, brain tumour, stroke or brain injury, epilepsy, genetic conditions, autism spectrum disorder, other complex neurodevelopmental conditions.

A research assistant (speech pathologist) will complete speech testing with your child either at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute or via telehealth. The appointment will take between 45 and 60 minutes, including breaks. You will receive a summary of your child's result.
