Om mig

  • Since 2003, I have worked clinically at Karolinska University Hospital with
    assessment and intervention of children with severe speech sound disorders.
    My professional curiosity and frustration concerning the lack of treatment
    progress in children with childhood apraxia of speech and in children with
    speech disorders related to cleft palate with/without cleft lip resulted 2020
    in the thesis titled: Speech and language in 5-year-old children with
    Childhood Apraxia of Speech or Cleft Palate


  • Thesis: Speech and language in 5-year-old children with Childhood Apraxia
    of Speech (CAS) or Cleft Palate (CP±L)
    The overall aim was exploratory: to describe and improve our understanding of
    speech and language in children with CAS at 5 years of age. The project
    assessed and described the speech of children diagnosed with CAS and a cohort
    av two years of patients born with cleft palate ± lip. About 50 % were found
    to have persistent speech errors at age 5. Children with CP±L were
    therefore screened for speech and motor speech difficulties and when
    difficulties were present evaluated looking for deficits related to apraxia.
    Because having a severe speech sound disorder can mask language deficits,
    children’s language competence was also assessed and
    communication abilities in every day life studied using parental
    ratings. The emerging speech and language profiles within groups and between
    groups have increase knowledge about the varying difficulties seen in Swedish
    children with CAS and CP±L.
    The thesis work is now followed by a longitudinal treatment study using DTTC
    targeting school-aged children with CAS.


  • I am involved in teaching, giving lectures and workshops within the course on
    speech and language disorders in childhood and adolescence at the Speech
    Language Pathology program. I supervise students examination projects and are
    looking forward to supervising master- or Ph-students in the future.
