Overview

Assessment of Motor Speech Disorders brings together a wide range of researchers to present a current summary of assessment and evaluation techniques for disordered speech, with both a clinical and a research focus. This unique resource reviews research evidence pertaining to best practice in the clinical assessment of established areas such as intelligibility and physiological functioning, as well as introducing recently developed topics such as conversational analysis, participation measures, and telehealth. In addition, new and established research methods from areas such as phonetics, kinematics, imaging, and neural modeling are reviewed in relation to their applicability and value for the study of disordered speech. Based on the broad coverage of topics and methods, the textbook represents a valuable resource for a wide ranging audience, including clinicians, researchers, as well as students with an interest in speech pathology and clinical phonetics.

Reviews

  • 5-star rating! Dr. Nicole Lallini, SLT, Lecturer in SLP, Newcastle University (2011), Royal College of Speech & Language Therapists, (December 2011):
    ""This book is an excellent resource, mostly for clinicians and researchers, but can also be used by speech and language therapy students interested in the area of acquired motor speech disorders. Highly-acclaimed experts, including Nick Miller, Wolfram Ziegler and Deborah Theodoros, have written the 16 chapters. What makes this book such a valuable resource is the fact the chapters are written from a perspective that includes the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health framework, which is then applied to the assessment of motor speech disorders. The information is presented in an accessible style and provides the reader with useful information, such as online resources and names/location of relevant tests andassessment tools. This book is also an excellent resource because it gives an up-to-date comprehensive summary for the assessment and evaluation of motor speech disorders considering well-known areas such as intelligibility, physiological assessment and prosody. It also includes recently established areas such as telerehabilitation and conversation analysis.""

  • Claire Bagness, Speech-Language Therapist, Northumberland, Speech & Language Therapy in Practice, (Winter 2011):
    ""This is an up-to-date comprehensive overview of holistic assessment of motor speech disorders. Phonetic and physiological assessment are thoroughly detailed as well as evaluation of the impact of motor speech disorders on an individual through adoption of the ICF framework (International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health). Conversation analysis, tele-health, imaging and neural modelling are also covered. Although some chapters are relevant to developmental motor speech disorders, the focus is primarily on acquired disorders. Some aspects of assessment are more applicable for research, however much is relevant for clinical assessment of this complex range of disorders. This text is accessible and would be use to newly qualified and experienced clinicans alike.""
