Assessing Acquired Apraxia of Speech: Practical Solutions to Common Challenges

Differentiating apraxia of speech (AOS) from other acquired speech and language impairments is important clinically as it provides a framework for understanding the signs and symptoms of the disorder, which in turn influences which specific treatment method will be applied. However, diagnosis remains challenging since it hinges on expert-based judgment of speech features, with minimal guidance on the frequency, severity, or clustering of features required for positive diagnosis. This course provides a brief overview of the current diagnostic method and its limitations, followed by discussion and demonstration of effective objective and semi-automated speech measures for identifying acquired AOS in both stroke and progressive forms. Video case examples and demonstrations of these measures will be provided so that clinicians can immediately begin putting this knowledge into practice.

Learning Objectives:
You will be able to:

  • Implement new methods for assessing speech production
  • Make an informed diagnostic decision about whether your client has AOS
  • Use the outcome of this diagnostic approach to develop targeted intervention goals
