The research implications of the initial support for substantial prevalence of motor speech disorders in Down syndrome (Wilson et al., 2019), and the present initial support for Childhood Dysarthria and Childhood Apraxia of Speech as explanatory constructs for the reduced intelligibility in persons with DS would appear to be straightforward. Specifically, as indicated in Results and Discussion.
Low intelligibility was significantly associated with across-the-board reductions in phonemic and phonetic accuracy and with inappropriate prosody and voice. Findings are interpreted as support for motor speech disorders in adolescents with DS as explanatory constructs for their reduced intelligibility.
