Abstract Apraxia of speech (AOS) is an acquired adult neurogenic communication disorder that often occurs following stroke. The purpose of this article is to review current research studies addressing the diagnostic and therapeutic management of AOS. Traditional definitions and characteristics are compared with current features that assist in the differential diagnosis of AOS. Prognostic indicators are reviewed in addition to how neuroplasticity may impact treatment in chronic AOS. Treatment… Expand
Towards movement-based outcome measures for apraxia of speech: a systematic review
ABSTRACT Background: Apraxia of speech (AOS) is defined as a disorder of articulatory movements, yet a cohesive account of the movement deficit in AOS appears to be lacking. Kinematic evaluationExpand
Critical Review: Effectiveness of Sound Production Treatment (SPT) with individuals with apraxia of speech
This critical review examines the effectiveness of Sound Production Treatment (SPT) with individuals with apraxia of speech. Experimental designs looking at this topic were all multiple baselineExpand
Critical Review: Does treatment using meaningful gestures improve functional, expressive communication skills in adults with acquired apraxia of speech?
This critical review examines evidence related to treatments for severe, acquired apraxia of speech, which incorporate the use of meaningful gestures. Study designs include: ABABA (1);Expand
Diagnosing Apraxia of Speech on the Basis of Eight Distinctive Signs
This paper reports the results of a study on the use of a fixed number of specific signs to differentially diagnose Apraxia of Speech (AoS) from aphasia or dysarthria. This was done with a diagnosticExpand
The feasibility of improving discourse in people with aphasia through AAC: clinical and functional MRI correlates
TLDR
This study provides preliminary guidance regarding how to implement AAC treatment in a manner that simultaneously facilitates language recovery across a variety of aphasia types and severity levels while compensating for residual deficits in people with chronic aphasIA. Expand

Childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) also known as Developmental verbal Dyspraxia (DVD) is an unusual speech disorder in which a child struggles on realising accurate mouth, jaw and tongue movements inExpand

Spinal or cortical direct current stimulation: Which is the best? Evidence from apraxia of speech in post-stroke aphasia
TLDR
Evidence is presented that transpinal direct current stimulation (tsDCS) combined with a language training is efficacious for the recovery from speech apraxia, a motor speech disorder which might co-occur with aphasia. Expand
High-technology augmentative communication for adults with post-stroke aphasia: a systematic review
TLDR
The current review synthesizes communication intervention studies that involved the use of high-technology communication devices to enhance linguistic communication skills for adults with post-stroke aphasia and focuses on compensatory approaches that emphasized functional communication. Expand
Acquired apraxia of speech: the effects of repeated practice and rate/rhythm control treatments on sound production accuracy.
TLDR
Repeated practice treatment resulted in improved articulation for the majority of participants, and rate/rhythm control appeared to have limited additional benefits for some participants. Expand

Acquired Apraxia of Speech: Features, Accounts, and Treatment
  • R. Peach
  • Psychology, Medicine

TLDR
The features of apraxia of speech (AOS) are presented with regard to both traditional and contemporary descriptions of the disorder, and treatment implications derived from motor accounts of AOS are presented. Expand

TLDR
Criteria that have been proposed for differentiating apraxic from phonological and dysarthric disorders are described and it is suggested that syndrome-based approaches to the diagnosis of AOS may obscure important differences between individual presentations of apraxia of speech. Expand
Clinical and anatomical correlates of apraxia of speech
TLDR
Results indicated that patients with AOS made the most errors on tasks requiring the coordination of complex, but not simple, articulatory movements, whereas patients without apraxia of speech did not. Expand

TLDR
If AOS is to be understood as a motor disorder, then models compatible with motor control and its neurophysiological underpinnings must be sought, and developments in the field of motor control are looked at that may hold clues to an answer. Expand
A treatment for apraxia of speech in adults.
TLDR
An eight-step task continuum to restore volitional-purposive communication is presented and three case histories of patients with severe apraxia of speech and mild-to-moderate aphasia demonstrate the application of the principle and the procedure. Expand
Vibrotactile stimulation for intersystemic reorganization in the treatment of apraxia of speech.
TLDR
Some hypotheses suggesting that afference resulting from limb movements rather than a central movement program is involved in gestural reorganization, and that vibrotactile stimulation may have advantages over visual or auditory modalities are developed. Expand
AAC for adults with acquired neurological conditions: A review
TLDR
The topics of recent AAC technological advances, acceptance, use, limitations, and future needs of individuals with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), traumatic brain injury (TBI), brainstem impairment, severe, chronic aphasia and apraxia of speech, primary progressive aphasa (PPA), and dementia are discussed.

Re-examining the brain regions crucial for orchestrating speech articulation.
TLDR
In patients with and without insular lesions, apraxia of speech was associated with structural damage or low blood flow in left posterior inferior frontal gyrus, and this results illustrate a potential limitation of lesion overlap studies, and illustrate an alternative method for identifying brain-behaviour relationships.
