Motor Speech Disorders
This course focuses on the etiology, neuroanatomy, & symptoms of common neurological disorders & their associated motor speech problems. Types of dysarthria & apraxia of speech are compared to establish a foundation for differential diagnosis. A hypotheses-based context for assessment & treatment is used to form hierarchies & estimate prognosis. We will use a patient-centered & evidence-based practice framework to discuss the impact of multi-cultural & psychosocial factors on the patient’s participation in rehabilitation.
