    Acquired apraxia of speech is a motor speech disorder that frequently co-occurs with aphasia. The differential diagnosis of apraxia from aphasia is challenging as it relies on expert-based judgment of speech characteristics that may overlap across disorders. This course will provide a brief overview of the current diagnostic method and its limitations, followed by discussion of new perceptual measures. Impairment-based approaches to treatment for individuals with AOS and concomitant aphasia will also be addressed. Video case examples and demonstrations will be provided so that clinicians can immediately begin putting this knowledge into practice.

    At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

    • Make an informed diagnostic decision about whether your client has apraxia of speech
    • List and briefly describe a number of treatment approaches for apraxia of speech
    • Demonstrate knowledge of a number of principles of motor learning and how to incorporate them into treatment
