1. Vine, Betty C. Tongue-thrust Etiology : A Review of the Literature.

Degree: MS, Communicative Disorders, 1974, Loma Linda University

In recent years the attention of specialty groups has been drawn toward the peculiar oral behavior commonly referred to as tongue-thrust. This behavior is not only characterized by multiple symptomatology, but it also has been characterized by multiple terminology. In addition to the wide variety of views and theories on the tongue-thrust behavior, there is an ever greater discrepancy of opinion concerning the causal factors of this behavior. What is its etiology? Is it a functional disorder? Is it organically based or a combination of the two? The purpose of the study was to attempt to organize the most prevalent body of clinical investigation which has been submitted for publication or delivered at speech or dental conferences on the subject of tongue-thrust etiology. The paper endeavored to pursue all etiological possibilities and consider each theory propounded in order to arrive at a point of agreement, reserved agreement or disagreement between scholars who have done validated research and made a significant contribution to the field. It is important to understand tongue thrust etiology because the tongue-thrust swallowing pattern has a high incidence in the general population primarily among school age children, especially in the lower grades. Increasing number of children with tongue-thrust also have defective speech and therefore serious consideration should be given to the causative factors related to it. The study reviewed the major etiological possibilities for the deviant swallowing pattern commonly referred to as tongue-thrust. The main theories advanced by leading scholar·s were organized into two categories or organic and functional theories. A chart was formed whereby the various theories were listed and association of the theories with the researchers were coordinated so that at a glance it is possible to identify the harmonious or discordant thinking among leading writers regarding tongue-thrust etiology. A review of the literature revealed twelve etiological theories pertaining to the tongue-thrust behavior. Of these the highest number of agreements involved 35 percent of the researchers and stated that tongue-thrust could be etiologically attributed to a structural deviancy or a temporary manifestation occurring intermittently during growth and development of the lower face. Twenty-nine percent felt that early in the years of maturation the performances of swallowing and speech are developed and modified by rapid facial or oral morphological change. Therefore this pattern of infantile swallow will change as a function of growth and development. Twelve percent of the investigators felt that tongue-thrust was innate at birth, while eight percent felt that the tooth shedding years were responsible when the child learns to fill the space left by departing deciduous teeth with the apex of the tongue, therefore fronting the tongue. Nine percent agreed with the hereditary thesis that tongue-thrust is genetically transmitted from parent to… Advisors/Committee Members: Logan W. Barnard, E. Evelyn Britt, W. Fletcher Tarr.

2. Brantingham, Bruce Frank. A Study in the Comparison of Ocular and Extremity Dominance Among a Stuttering and Non-Stuttering School-Age Population.

Degree: MS, Speech-Language Pathology, 1968, Loma Linda University

The nul-hypothesis has been confirmed by the analysis of the study, in that they show no relationship between stuttering and unilateral dominance. The results indicate that the laterality measure of the experimental group did not differ significantly from that of the control group. In as much as the results of only one statistical test were significant, it is felt that this does not detract from the contribution of the study. It would seem that the results obtained from this comparison, the analysis of overall visual adequacy and extremity dominance, could have occurred by chance alone. It is pointed out, however, that this test was distinctly different from all other tests performed; and it is felt that careful consideration should he given to this factor in a total evaluation of the results obtained. The statistical analysis of the data compiled were done by way of the."t' test of significance, which included computation of the "t' statistic to test whether scores obtained on selected tests were statistically significant, and the Chi Square Test, which was used to determine the presence or absence of factors indicating a greater or less degree of dominance confusion. The experimental and control groups were composed of a total of twenty subjects, who were administered The Harris Tests of Lateral Dominance, the Leavell Hand-Eye Coordinator Tests, and the Keystone Visual Survey; Tests for the purpose of exploring the relationship of measures of lateral dominance. On the basis of the results obtained from this investigation, the following conclusions seem warranted: <ol> Stuttering subjects do not show a higher incidence of extremity and ocular dominance confusion that do non-stuttering controls. The lack of unilateral dominance would not be considered a factor regarding lateral dominance as it relates to stuttering. A significantly greater proportion of stutterers were shown to have a visual inadequacy in association with extremity in-coordination and imbalance. Further research of the relationship of lateral dominance confusion and stuttering observed by more clinicians is needed. Further research in the development of instruments to assess lateral dominance is indicated. </ol> [Keywords: Stuttering, Neurological Organization, Lateral Dominance, Mixed Dominance, Dominant Eye] Advisors/Committee Members: Kenneth R.

3. Zelman, Betty M. The Feasibility of Employing a Neurophysiological Approach to Learning Disabilities in the Public School.

Degree: MS, Speech-Language Pathology, 1965, Loma Linda University

A number of procedures characteristic of the neurophysical approach to learning problems were employed in the Rialto Unified School District. This study was undertaken to determine the feasibility of their use in the public school setting. The results of the investigation indicated that: <ol> The practices may be employed in public schools. School administrators gave support for the program. School personnel either are or may be trained to carry out the procedures. Chronological age appears to have little expected to be extensive. Cooperation from the home cannot be expected to be extensive. Further study should be given to public school uses of procedures oriented to the neurophysical approach. </ol> Areas to be considered for further investigation are also indicated.
