Project Title

ARTICULATE + : A system for Automated Assessment and Rehabilitation of Persons with Articulation Disorders

Web Abstract

Articulation disorders are commonly found in children with hearing impairment, cerebral palsy, cognitive impairment, cleft lip and palate and also in persons followed by stroke and accidents.  Articulation therapy is a systematic procedure in which a misarticulated sound is corrected at various levels by speech-language pathologists. However, there is lack of trained rehabilitation professionals in India leading to scarcity of rehabilitation services. The proposal is to develop a suite of applications useful for articulation assessment and therapy at the level of phonemes, words, phrases and sentences in Hindi and English. The anticipated product out of this project is a software based diagnostic system ‘ARTICULATE+’ for assessment and rehabilitation of persons with articulation disorder. The ‘ARTICULATE+’ will help speech pathologists, special educators and caregivers of persons with communication disorders. Using ARTICULATE+, persons with articulation disorders would avail fast and efficient services which will further enhance their quality of life.
