Lies, damned lies and Brexit statistics. It's not been a good month for anyone espousing evidence-based policy and politics after the chair of the Commons health committee switched from Leave to Remain, citing misuse of data by the Leave campaign.Recent research has suggested that elicitingdiadochokinetic (DDK) rate and accuracy in youngchildren is difficult , with analysis being timeconsuming.This paper details a new protocol forassessing DDK in young children or children withintellectual impairment (Down's syndrome) and amethod for calculating accuracy scoresautomatically. Accuracy scores were calculatedfrom auditory and electropalatographic analysesand found to correlate in some instances. Thechildren with Down's syndrome presented withsimilar DDK rates to typically-developing childrenbut reduced accuracy.
