Motor Speech Disorders

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