Data, Output, and Code: A Clinical Advantage: Experience informs recognition and adaptation to a novel talker with dysarthria
Perceptual training paradigms, which leverage the mechanism of perceptual learning, show that naïve listeners, those with no prior experience with dysarthria, benefit from explicit familiarization with a talker with dysarthria. The assumption, that familiarization affords listeners an opportunity to acquire distributional knowledge of the degraded speech signal. Here, we extend investigations to clinically experienced listeners, Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs), and advance models of listener recognition and adaptation to dysarthric speech.

Perceptual training for improved intelligibility of dysarthric speech
Forty-seven SLPs completed a standard three-phase perceptual training protocol (pretest, familiarization, posttest) with a novel talker with dysarthria. Intelligibility scores were compared with a historical data set from naïve listeners. Further, potential relationships between intelligibility scores and characteristics of clinical experience were examined.
