Motor Speech Disorders "Diagnosis and Treatment"

Motor Speech Disorders: Diagnosis and Treatment, Fourth Edition offers a detailed yet streamlined introduction to motor speech disorders for graduate speech-language pathology students and beginning clinicians. The text begins with a brief historical overview of motor speech disorders, providing useful context for understanding the technology and methodology used by today's speech-language pathologists for assessment and treatment. The book also provides a practical introduction to the human motor system with 45 full-color anatomical illustrations enabling readers to more easily understand the challenging material. A full chapter is dedicated to the assessment of the disorders and includes a detailed explanation of the complete motor speech examination.

The majority of the text is focused on the six pure dysarthrias, mixed dysarthria, and apraxia of speech. Throughout these chapters, a consistent organization is maintained to facilitate the reader's understanding of the disorders. Each chapter begins with the neurological basis of the condition, then covers the causes of the disorder, an examination of the relevant speech characteristics, and key evaluation tasks specific to the disorder; and concludes with treatment procedures.
