1. Phonomotor Treatment Background and Evidence Base
This chapter, with Dr. Diane Kendall, will describe the evidence base behind phonomotor treatment, beginning from the ground up including relevant models of aphasia, and their theoretical applications to phonomotor treatment. Dr Kendall will then explore both the phase 1 and phase 2 evidence for phonomotor treatment.
2. Phonomotor Treatment Application: Stages One and Two
In this chapter, with Megan Oelke, participants are provided with an in-depth “nuts and bolts” tutorial on the administration of stage 1 and stage 2 phonomotor treatment. Megan Oelke will walk participants through the process using materials set up for treatment, and will introduce examples filmed with real patients being administered phonomotor treatment.
3. Conclusion and Practice Examples
The final chapter of this course will provide quick tips for clinicians who are new to phonomotor treatment, as well as additional case examples of phonomotor treatment being performed with real patients.
