SIG 2 Perspectives Vol. 23, No. 3, November 2013
This issue of Perspectives on Neurophysiology and Neurogenic Speech and Language Disorders focuses on motor speech disorders. The articles will review neurologic substrates for motor speech disorders with use of clinical observations of speech and non-speech characteristics that can aid the clinician in understanding the underlying neural deficit. Additionally, a review of the evidence-based dysarthria intervention, with description of recent and ongoing efforts, will be reviewed. As well as, an overview of some of the important advances, new developments, and trends in apraxia of speech (AOS) treatment research. A case-study approach will be outlined to better define a systematic decision-making process for AAC evaluation and implementation.
You will be able to:
- describe how understanding neurological substrates is beneficial in the differential diagnosis of motor speech disorders
- describe recent efforts to expand evidence-based intervention for dysarthria
- describe a systematic decision-making process, as outlined by Hanson, to assist with evaluation and implementation of AAC systems
- demonstrate understanding of new evidence of apraxia of speech (AOS) and how is applies to clinical practice
