Abstract

The production of speech, language and gesture for communication is often affected by cerebral palsy. Communication difficulties associated with cerebral palsy can be multifactorial, arising from motor, intellectual and / or sensory impairments, and children with this diagnosis can experience mild to severe difficulties in expressing themselves. They are often referred to speech and language therapy (SLT) services, to maximise their communication skills and help them to take an independent a role as possible in interaction. This can include introducing augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems, such as symbol charts or speech synthesizers, as well treating children's natural forms of communication. Various strategies have been used to treat the communication disorders associated with cerebral palsy but evidence of their effectiveness is limited.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 17 February 2017.
All research outputs
#2,654,021
of 12,100,779 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#3,531
of 7,978 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#39,247
of 198,807 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#94
of 171 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,100,779 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 77th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 7,978 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 14.6. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 198,807 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 171 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 45th percentile – i.e., 45% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
