Comparison of intelligibility measures on single word and spontaneous speech tasks for children with and without cleft palate

Carrie Gotzke, Megan Hodge, Jason Daniels


The speech intelligibility probe for children with cleft palate (SIP-CCLP) was developed to measure single word intelligibility in children with cleft palate based on these children's typical error patterns. Preliminary evaluation of the reliability and content and construct validity of the SIP-CCLP indicated that it shows the potential to be a reliable and valid clinical tool. This paper aims to conduct a preliminary evaluation of the criterion validity of a software version of the SIP-CCLP using speech samples from young children with and without cleft palate.
