Treating acquired speech and language disorders starts with a strong differential diagnosis evaluation. This course will guide the participant in recognizing the differences and then building a combination of treatment approaches to target the impairments. Participants will become familiar with tests including the Newcastle Dysarthria Assessment Tool, The Apraxia Speech Rating Scale, The Apraxia Battery for Adults Assessment, and Cognitive Test Battery for Global Aphasia. Evidence based treatment approaches will be discussed as well as some less researched clinical pathways. These techniques include Rhythm/rate control methods, and articulatory kinematic approaches The instructor will present case studies and guides on documentation. Therapists will leave with a well-rounded approach to acquired speech and language disorders to bring to the patients on Monday morning.
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Recall basic knowledge of neuroanatomy related to strokes
- Review epidemiological risks factors that can cause CVAs
- Identify disorders related to post CVA sequela such as apraxia, dysarthria, global aphasia and dysphagia
- Classify and diagnose aphasia, apraxia, and dysarthria’s based on chart review and patient presentation, and standardized testing
- Compare current treatment methods efficacy as notes in the research
- Recognize and coexistence of multiple neuro speech/language disorders to provide an accurate differential diagnosis
- Predict outcomes based on severity and co-morbidities in order to decide the most appropriate treatment pathways
- Recommend and implement appropriate treatment strategies to achieve the predicted outcomes.
- Choose modifications during treatment to compensate for visual dysfunction
