Evidence-based Treatment Techniques for Acquired Apraxia of Speech

The evidence-base concerning treatments for acquired apraxia of speech (AOS) has been continually expanding. The purpose of this presentation is to provide a synopsis of the most current AOS treatment research advances. These advances will be described relative to the context of existing research to facilitate understanding of the current state of the evidence. Emphasis will be placed on clinically relevant treatment techniques that may be readily translated to practice. Specific information for clinical application will be provided and will include topics such as treatment target selection, dosage issues, practice schedule, and outcome measurement.
