The Intelligibility in Context Scale (ICS-G digital) - Investigation of German norm data in children with and without speech sound  disorders (3;0-9;11 years)

Goal: To collect German norm data for the intelligibility of children with and without speech sound disorders (SSD) by using the digital ICS-G. Furthermore, the use of ICS-G (self) for children from the age of 6 and their validation occurs for the first time.

Method: The not yet published digital version of the ICS-G (McLeod et al., 2012) is getting revised for the use of investigation. Hereby, norm data of children with and without SSD (3;0-5;11 y.; n ≥ 300) is getting collected. Parallel to that, data of the digital version of the ICF is getting compared with the paper-pencil-version. In a second step, the ICS-G (self) for children with and without SSD (6;0-9;11 y.; n = 50) is being used and validated for the first time. Hereby, the children assess their intelligibility in relation to different communication partners. The following diagnostic procedures are used: PLAKSS-II (Fox-Boyer, 2014), ICS-G (McLeod et al., 2012), KiddyCAT-G (Vanryckeghem & Brutten, 2007), FOCUS-G (Thomas-Stonell et al., 2012). Based on phonetic transcription, analysis through PCC, PICC, PVC and PPC takes place. Laypersons will assess the intelligibility of the children (Dobinson, 2007). This data is getting correlated with the results of the ICF-orientated assessments.
