Target Audience
Speech Language Pathologists

Chapter 1: Defining, Understanding and Categorizing Motor Speech Disorders Chapter 2: Neurologic Bases of Motor Speech and its Pathologies Chapter 3: Examination of Motor Speech Disorders

This course utilizes text from the hardback textbook by Joseph R. Duffy, Ph.D. “Motor Speech Disorders” ©2005. Written by professor and head of speech language pathology at the Mayo Clinic, the second edition of Dr. Duffy’s textbook continues its reputation as a dependable and outstanding evidence-based source on acquired motor speech disorders in adults. It covers the substrates of motor speech and its disorders, the disorders and their diagnoses, and management -- focusing on integrating what is known about the bases of motor speech disorders with the realities of clinical practice to ensure readers have the key content they need to be effective practitioners. With expanded and updated information including current techniques, approaches, and case studies.
