With the support of the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation, the Children’s Speech Research Laboratory in the Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Alberta opened its doors in 2006. With additional funding from the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation, Drs. Carol Boliek and Cynthia Fox along with collaborators Drs. Christian Beaulieu and Jonathan Norton designed a Phase II study to determine the physiological and therapeutic effects of /697��/28' on the speech and voice of children with cerebral palsy (CP).


This study was a direct expansion of the Phase I work Dr. Fox completed which demonstrated a therapeutic effect using /697��/28' on a group of five children with cerebral palsy. The original work on children with CP was also expanded to a group of children with Down syndrome in collaboration with Dr. Lorraine Ramig and members of her research team at the National Center for Voice and Speech in Denver, Colorado (Angela Halpern, Jill Cable and Tara Robinson).
