Summary

This highly readable and uncomplicated text offers an examination of the basics of motor speech disorders. In its simple, straight-forward style, it provides a review of ancient case reports that seem to involve speech or language disorders; this acts as a historical introduction to the study of motor speech disorders. The text discusses how speech-language pathologists evaluate these disorders. Without producing overwhelming details, the text offers an introduction to the human motor system as well as providing information on six pure dysarthrias, mixed dysarthria, apraxia of speech. All chapters on dyarthria and apraxia contain information on etiology, characteristics, and treatment so the student has all desired information on a given disorder easily accessible. This must-have text concentrates on topics that are most essential for a student's understanding of these disorders. In addition, the accompanying CD-ROM augments the text with real-life case examples of the various motor speech disorders.
