AbstractThe present study investigated the diadochokinetic (DDK) performance in typically-developing children at the age of 3;00 to 5;11 speaking Cantonese as the native language, in terms of rate and accuracy measures. To investigate language effect on DDK rate performance, the present results were compared with an English norm in the literature. Children generally performed better in repeating monosyllables than multisyllables, but performed equally well in real-words and non-words in both rate and accuracy measures. Contrary to previous findings, developmental progression was only evident in rate but not in accuracy. No significant cross-language effect was found. The language-universal speech control system was therefore speculated. Typical DDK profile obtained in this study may also act as a clinical reference for speech motor assessment.
