SIG 2 Perspectives on Neurophysiology and Neurogenic Speech and Language Disorders, October 2007, Vol. 17, 2. doi:10.1044/nnsld17.3.2
The goal of this issue of Perspectives is to provide updates on speech-language interventions in three areas of communication disorders: apraxia of speech, AAC, and adolescent TBI. In addition, we wished to provide information on a new problem that many speech-language pathologists (SLPs) will be facing in the coming months and years: TBI resulting from blast injury. In the first article, Shannon Austermann Hula describes a motor learning approach for treating acquired adult apraxia of speech (AOS). This is an update of an article that was written by Kirrie Ballard in 2001 for Perspectives. Since 2001, several studies have examined the application of motor learning principles to AOS. Hula Austermann reviews motor learning and describes what we have learned from these studies.
