Norm data for the Nordic Orofacial Test- Screening (NOT-S) for children aged 6:0- 8:0 years. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Andning, sväljning, tuggning, mimik och artikulation är delar av orofacial funktion (Bakke, Bergendal, McAllister, Sjogreen, & Asten, 2007). Oralmotoriken är viktig för talproduktion och födointag (Lundeborg Hammarström, 2010). Nordiskt Orofacialt Test- Screening (NOT-S) är ett screeningtest som används för att bedöma avvikande orofacial funktion (Bakke et al., 2007). Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur barn med typisk utveckling mellan 6:0- 8:0 år presterar på NOT-S, samt om det föreligger någon ålder- eller könsskillnad i utförandet av uppgifterna. I studien deltog 80 barn och deras föräldrar. Barnen var uppdelade i två åldersgrupper, varav 30 stycken sexåringar och 50 stycken sjuåringar. Testningen genomfördes i skolmiljö och föräldraintervjuer gjordes via telefon. Resultatet visade att barn i åldrarna 6:0- 8:0 år fick en totalpoäng på 1,44 ± 1,16 på NOT-S. Sexåringarna i studien fick en totalpoäng på 1,63 ± 1,16 och sjuåringarna fick en totalpoäng på 1,32 ± 1,15. Det fanns inga signifikanta ålders- eller könskillnader förutom på intervjudelen där en könskillnad mellan sjuåringar uppmättes. De sjuåriga pojkarna hade mer orofaciala problem än flickorna på intervjudelen. Resultaten kan användas som normvärden vid klinisk användning av NOT-S på studerade åldersgrupper.

Abstract [en]

Breathing, swallowing, chewing, facial expressions and articulation are aspects of orofacial function (Bakke, Bergendal, McAllister, Sjogreen, & Asten, 2007). Oral motor function is important for speech production as well as eating

(Lundeborg Hammarström, 2010). The Nordic Orofacial Test –Screening (NOT-S) is a screening instrument for orofacial dysfunction (Bakke et al., 2007). The purpose of this study was to collect data about how typically developed children aged 6:0-8:0 years perform on NOT-S, and also to examine if there were any age or gender differences in the results. A total of 80 children and their caretakers participated in the study. There were 30 children aged six and 50 aged seven. The children were tested in their schools and their parents were interviewed by telephone. The results showed that children aged 6:0- 8:0 years had a mean score of 1,44 ± 1,16 on NOT-S. For children at age six the mean score was 1,63 ± 1,16 and for the children at age seven, the mean score was 1,32 ± 1,15. No significant age or gender differences were found in the results except in the interview section, where a significant gender difference between children at age seven was measured. Boys had more orofacial problems than girls. Results may be used as norm data when using the NOT-S in clinical practice.
