Pearson's EBP Briefs: Evidence-Based Intervention for Individuals with Acquired Apraxia of Speech
Presented by Angela Van Sickle, PhD, CCC-SLP
Text
Course: #7939 Level: Advanced1 Hour
Pearson's EBP Briefs are case-based courses designed to assist with everyday decision-making in clinical practice. This case will examine the clinical question, “Would individuals with Acquired Apraxia of Speech (AOS) demonstrate improvements for speech production with an articulatory kinematic approach or a rate/rhythm approach?” The related literature search and analysis, along with the resultant clinical decision and application to clinical practice, will also be discussed. A relevant assessment tool for this case is the CLQT+ (Helm-Estabrooks, 2017).
