The third edition of Motor Speech Disorders: Diagnosis and Treatment provides graduate students and starting clinicians with an introduction to motor speech disorders that is both comprehensive and easy to understand. This article provides a concise historical overview of motor speech problems, which is helpful for gaining a knowledge of the technology and methods that contemporary speech-language pathologists utilize for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. In addition to this, the book offers a useful introduction to the human motor system as well as in-depth discussions of six types of pure dysarthria, mixed dysarthria, and apraxia of speech.
Outlines of each Chapter enumerate the primary subjects that are covered in each chapter.
Each chapter is finished off with an effective summary that focuses on the most important elements for the pupils.
Each chapter’s last set of questions serves as a stimulus for a review and application of the material covered in that chapter.
Key phrases are highlighted throughout the text, and there is a glossary at the book’s conclusion.
Real-life case studies of patients with motor speech problems presented in the form of video recordings
