eCPD - Facial Tracking – Assisting Speech Language Pathologists with Objective Measures

Date & Time

Thursday, 20 Jan 2022
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This is a recording of a live webinar held 20 July 2020
 

Speaker: Dr Roslyn Ward, Notre Dame University

Speech sound disorders (SSD) affect as many as 20% of Australian preschool children and have a huge impact on a child’s quality of life and well-being. The term (SSD) is used to describe speech planning and production difficulties that may result in decreased speech intelligibility, thus affecting a child’s ability to communicate, placing children at risk of social, emotional and academic difficulties.

Speech-language pathologists play a primary role in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of SSDs. Typically, the assessment process includes the administration of a speech sound assessment, scoring speech sounds and facial movements subjectively, using pen and paper. This inefficient and subjective process is insufficiently sensitive for differential diagnosis.

In collaboration with spatial sciences we are working to develop a desktop software application that will support speech-language pathologists to automatically collect objective measurements of facial movements to facilitate the assessment process. We will use low-cost cameras to create a mobile, low-cost, rapid and accurate automated diagnostic solution for early differential diagnosis of subtypes of SSD in children; thus revolutionising the diagnostic process.
