Abstract

Anterior drooling is common in children with cerebral palsy (CP) and poses significant risks to the child's health. Causes of drooling include oro-motor dysfunction, inefficient swallowing and reduced sensation in the orofacial musculature. Behavioural interventions are frequently recommended to reduce drooling; however, this is in the absence of high-quality research evidence. This paper describes a protocol for evaluating the effectiveness of the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment LOUD (LSVT LOUD®) in reducing drooling; and optimising speech and swallowing in a group of children with CP. A structured and systematic visual analysis supplemented with statistical analyses will be used to analyse the data. The risk of bias in n-of-1 trials (RoBiNT) Scale [1] guided the design and implementation of the study.
