Case study otitis media with effusion

About essay
A case study of the speech development in a male infant with chronic otitis media is reported. The phonetic behavior characterizing the child's vocalizations was sampled monthly between the ages of 11 and 21 months, as he progressed from pre-speech to early speech periods of language development. Results of monthly phonetic inventory analyses indicated age-appropriate types of consonants in his pre-word and later-word vocalizations. However, the child's repertoire of consonants was considerably reduced as he first began to produce meaningful speech.

Those with cleft palate, Down syndrome, and other craniofacial anomalies are at high risk for anatomic causes of OME in addition to worsened function of the Eustachian tube.
