1. Motor Learning Review and Apraxia of Speech
This chapter will provide a review of motor learning theory and the PML and theoretical support for the use of these principles in the rehabilitation of AOS. This information provides the foundation from which the remainder of the talk builds upon.
2. The Current Evidence: Practice Conditions & Feedback Conditions
This chapter will discuss the current evidence for the use of the PML in speech skill training/treatment for speakers with AOS. Some of the studies discussed here will have been explained in the previous presentation, “Principles of Motor Learning: The Current Evidence in Speech Training and Treatment.” The outcomes of these investigations, as well as methodological issues that may have led to inconsistent results, will be discussed. A summary of the information will be provided. The information in this chapter will provide examples of how PML have been examined in speakers with AOS, as well as challenges that have led to inconsistent findings.
3. Current Practices and Future Directions
This chapter will cover the current state of AOS treatment and how motor learning theory and the PML are integrated into established treatment protocols. This information informs clinicians about the current state of practice for AOS treatment and how the PML are currently implemented. In addition, considerations for clinical practice and future directions for continued investigation of the PML in AOS rehabilitation will be discussed.
