Diagnosing and Managing Motor Speech Disorders Across the Continuum of Care

Course Description

Careful, differential diagnosis of motor speech disorders in adults can inform the neurological localization of symptoms, provide a framework to inform treatment decisions, and facilitate clinical discussions. This day- long course will review the differential diagnosis and management of the dysarthrias, acquired and progressive apraxia of speech, and functional speech disorders as they may be encountered across the continuum of care.

Course Learning Objectives

  • Describe the approach to differential diagnosis of motor speech disorders across the continuum of care
  • Define the approaches to managing motor speech disorders across the continuum of care
  • List the positive clinical features supportive of a functional speech disorder
