Sound Production Treatment for Apraxia of Speech Acquired apraxia of speech (AOS) is a neurogenic speech disorder that is considered to reflect an underlying disruption of the ability to specify speech motor programs (McNeil, Robin, & Schmidt, 1997; McNeil, Doyle, & Wambaugh, 2000). The sound errors that typify AOS are errors of spatial targeting and timing of ... Article

Acquired apraxia of speech (AOS) is a neurogenic speech disorder that is considered to reflect an underlying disruption of the ability to specify speech motor programs (McNeil, Robin, & Schmidt, 1997; McNeil, Doyle, & Wambaugh, 2000). The sound errors that typify AOS are errors of spatial targeting and timing of the articulators (Square, Martin, & Bose, 2001). Consequently, treatments for AOS frequently focus on facilitating or improving the articulatory-kinematic aspects of speech production (McNeil et al., 2000). Sound production treatment (SPT) is one such treatment that has been systematically investigated in terms of its effects on consonant production in speakers with AOS.
