Motor Speech Disorders: Diagnosis and Treatment
This book investigates cross-language aspects of motor speech disorders, including their assessment and treatment as well as the underlying neurophysiological and neuropsychological disruptions that bring about disorders of speech motor control. His main research interests include apraxia, dysarthria and dysphagia and the psychosocial impact of neurogenic communication disorders. Her research interests include dysarthria, prosodic disorders, acoustic analysis of disordered speech, treatment effectiveness and the development of outcome measures. The real goal of speech motor control is communication, so to understand motor speech disorders we have to study them in context — in the full diversity of human languages in which they arise. This ground-breaking, engaging book will foster identification of universal and language-specific symptoms of motor speech disorders, and stimulate research on their assessment and treatment.
Speech is the most complex of innately acquired human motor skills, an activity characterized in normal adults by the production of about 14 distinguishable sounds per second through the coordinated actions of about muscles innervated by multiple cranial and spinal nerves. The ease with which we speak belies the complexity of the act, and that complexity may help explain why speech can be exquisitely sensitive to nervous system disease. In fact, changes in speech can be the only evidence of neurologic disease early in its evolution and sometimes the only significant impairment in a progressive or chronic neurologic condition. In such contexts, recognizing the meaning of specific speech signs and symptoms can provide important clues about the underlying pathophysiology and localization of neurologic disease.

Request Exam Copy. Add to Cart. Motor Speech Disorders: Diagnosis and Treatment, Third Edition offers a detailed yet streamlined introduction to motor speech disorders for graduate students and beginning clinicians. The text offers a brief historical overview of motor speech disorders, providing useful context for understanding the technology and methodology used by modern speech-language pathologists for evaluation and treatment. The text also provides a practical introduction to the human motor system and detailed coverage of six pure dysarthrias, mixed dysarthria, and apraxia of speech. The flow of text across the chapters is well thought out, and the content of the textbook is supplemented well through colorful visual depictions.
Motor speech disorders are a common accompaniment of a whole range of neurological conditions, from stroke, brain injury and Parkinson's disease through to many rarer conditions. This book aims to aid understanding of the nature of motor speech disorders from a cross-language perspective, in contrast to the largely English-centric nature of research and practice recommendations to date. The book looks not just at how these motor speech disorders are assessed and treated in other countries, but also examines how underlying speech impairments differ according to the language someone speaks. The book studies the underlying neurological, neurophysiological and neurophonetic characteristics of motor speech disorders in different language contexts, and discusses the implications these have for clinical rehabilitation. This significantly adds to debates around the theoretical understanding and clinical management of motor speech disorders. Despite the clear emphasis on providing cross-language insights, the researcher or clinician whose work is very much grounded in English-speakers would stand to benefit hugely from reviewing the opening chapters to gain new insight and direction into linguistic approaches to the description, diagnosis and treatment of MSDs. This is a fascinating, well-written and informative book

One of the most trusted sources on this topic, Motor Speech Disorders integrates the latest neurological research with the realities of clinical practice. The fourth edition is divided into three sections which focus on substrates of motor speech and its disorders, the disorders and their diagnoses, and finally managing various treatment types. Additionally, new research on the neurologic organization of motor control, causes of motor speech disorders, and advances in the medical and behavioral management of specific disorders is incorporated throughout. Supported by a robust evolve site, this outstanding, evidence-based resource provides everything you need to become a skilled clinical practitioner. PART 1: Substrates 1.
Густые клубы пара окутывали корпус ТРАНСТЕКСТА, ступеньки лестницы были влажными от конденсации, она едва не упала, поскользнувшись. Она нервничала, гадая, сколько еще времени продержится ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Сирены продолжали завывать; то и дело вспыхивали сигнальные огни. Тремя этажами ниже дрожали и гудели резервные генераторы. Сьюзан знала, что где-то на дне этого погруженного в туман подземелья есть рубильник. Кроме того, она понимала, что времени почти не оставалось.
