Project Description

This longitudinal corpus was collected through the support of Neurolinguistics of Language Acquisition and Delay Clinic at Children’s Hospital, Boston. The single case study subject is a child with speech sound delay/disorder with features of Childhood Apraxia of Speech. Recordings were collected during the subject’s one-hour therapy sessions on a roughly biweekly basis. All of the subject’s interactions with his mother and the clinician were recorded using a Sony ICD-SX57 portable mp3 recorder. The corpus is heterogeneous, consisting of both spontaneous and imitative utterances produced in structured and unstructured contexts.
