PURPOSE Speech and other oral functions such as swallowing have been compared and contrasted with oral behaviors variously labeled quasispeech, paraspeech, speechlike, and nonspeech, all of which overlap to some degree in neural control, muscles deployed, and movements performed. Efforts to understand the relationships among these behaviors are hindered by the lack of explicit and widely accepted definitions. This review article offers definitions and taxonomies for nonspeech oral movements and…

Nonverbal praxis in speech pathology : literature review

TLDR
The clinical necessity to create speech therapy tools that include stimulation of non-verbal Praxis to work with the articulation of Speech is suggested.

Nonverbal Oro-Motor Exercises: Do They Really Work for Phonoarticulatory Difficulties?

Articulation disorders are deficiencies in the realization of speech sounds unrelated to organic or neurological disorders. Over the last decade, there has been a debate on the efficiency of

Speech Disorders in Dysgnathic Adult Patients in the Field of Severity of Primary Dysfunction

TLDR
The surgical correction of malocclusion leads to better oral motor control and articulation of Polish consonants in adults, and a new kind of speech therapy-orthognathic speech therapy is promoted.

Oral Motor Abilities Are Task Dependent: A Factor Analytic Approach to Performance Rate

TLDR
The data on oral motor performance rates show that speech tasks and oral motor tasks such as rapid syllable repetition or repetitive single articulator movements measure separate traits.

Speech and nonspeech: What are we talking about?

  • E. Maas
  • Psychology
    International journal of speech-language pathology
  • 2017
TLDR
A task-dependent model of speech motor control is called into question as its two central claims are founded on ill-defined and inconsistently applied concepts, including the critical importance of defining speech.

ORAL MOTOR AND ARTICULATION THERAPIES ON SPEECH INTELLIGIBILITY AMONG PERSONS WITH DOWN SYNDROME

TLDR
It is recommended that speech and language therapists and other relevant professionals in the field of rehabilitation should adopt oral motor and articulation therapies for rehabilitation of speech intelligibility problems among persons with Down syndrome.

Automated Acoustic Analysis of Oral Diadochokinesis to Assess Bulbar Motor Involvement in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

  • Panying Rong
  • Physics
    Journal of speech, language, and hearing research : JSLHR
  • 2020
TLDR
This study provided preliminary validation of a novel automated acoustic DDK analysis in extracting a useful measure, namely, cTV, for early detection of bulbar ALS, and has potential clinical applications as a novel bulbar assessment.

The Use of Nonspeech Oral Motor Exercises in the Treatment of Children With Cleft Palate: A Re-Examination of Available Evidence.

TLDR
The literature reviewed herein suggests that, on a number of different levels, the implementation of NSOMEs does not result in positive communication outcomes for children with cleft palate who present with velopharyngeal dysfunction or compensatory speech errors.

Nonspeech oral motor treatment issues related to children with developmental speech sound disorders.

  • D. Ruscello
  • Medicine, Psychology

  • 2008
TLDR
The application of NSOMTs is questionable due to a number of reservations that include (a) the implied cause of developmental speech sound disorders, (b) neurophysiologic differences between the limbs and oral musculature, and (c) the development of new theories of movement and movement control.

Controversies surrounding nonspeech oral motor exercises for childhood speech disorders.

  • G. Lof
  • Psychology, Medicine

  • 2008
TLDR
The use of nonspeech oral motor exercises (NSOMEs) for influencing children’s speech sound productions is a common therapeutic practice used by speech-language pathologists (SLPs) in the United States, Canada, 2 and the United Kingdom, but the effectiveness of these techniques is disputed because of the lack of theoretical and empirical support.

Variations in articulatory movement with changes in speech task.

  • S. TaskoM. McClean
  • Psychology
    Journal of speech, language, and hearing research : JSLHR
  • 2004
TLDR
The most prominent result from the task comparison was that the nonsense speech task exhibited larger, faster, and longer movement strokes than the other speech tasks, and for some articulators (lower lip and tongue), there were task-related differences in spatial variability.

Task-Related Factors in Oral Motor Control: Speech and Oral Diadochokinesis in Dysarthria and Apraxia of Speech

  • W. Ziegler
  • Psychology, Medicine

  • 2002
TLDR
Overall, dysdiadochokinesis was correlated with the degree of speech impairment, but there was a strong interaction between task type and motor speech syndrome, which affected DDK to a relatively greater extent than sentence production.

Motor learning of volitional nonspeech oral movements: Intraoral pressure and articulatory kinematics

This study provides initial validation of a complex nonspeech task that will be used in future research for examining and comparing the neurophysiologic mechanisms of speech and volitional nonspeech

Speech versus nonspeech: different tasks, different neural organization.

  • K. Bunton
  • Psychology
    Seminars in speech and language
  • 2008
TLDR
This article reviews the extant studies of the relation of oromotor nonspeech activities to speech production and concludes that experience-specific training is supported by empirical data and principles of motor learning and neural plasticity.

Task specificity in early oral motor development.

TLDR
A long-standing clinical and theoretical debate regarding the potential relationship between speech and nonspeech behaviors in the developing system is addressed, and integrated theoretical paradigms and empirical data on the development of early oromotor behaviors are discussed.

Evidence-based systematic review: effects of nonspeech oral motor exercises on speech.

TLDR
Insufficient evidence to support or refute the use of OMEs to produce effects on speech was found in the research literature, leading to a consideration of the need for more well-designed studies using well-described participant groups and alternative bases for evidence-based practice.

BACKGROUND Non-speech oro-motor exercises (NSOMExs) are described in speech and language therapy manuals and are thought to be much used in acquired dysarthria intervention, though there is no robust
