The main aim of this Delphi study is to develop guidelines for the creation of standardized reading passages for the assessment of speech and voice disorders.
Today, several reading passages exist, most of which however do not seem to meet the clinicians' and researchers' expectations and needs.
This Delphi study therefore yields to seek agreement through an international decision-making process, on what criteria should be taken into account when creating a new reading passage.
When assessing speech, both instrumental and perceptual measures can be used, the latter of which still seem to be the golden standard in clinical practice. Nonetheless, there appears to be a lack of consensus regarding the terminology of the perceptual concepts, as well as how to assess them.
Therefore, this consensus survey will be structured as follows:
1) Definitions of speech-related concepts*
2) Perceptual and objective speech measures*
3) Criteria for creating standard reading passages
*questions in these sections will only be presented to participants with activities in speech and fluency disorders
Please take time to answer each of the questions, and provide as much information as possible.
It is of course possible at any time to withdraw from the survey and cancel the form.
