Explanation of the Book:

When a young child has a severe speech sound disorder--especially one severe enough to affect the child's intelligibility--it's critical to determine the degree to which motor speech impairment contributes to the disorder. Now there's a psychometrically well-supported tool that helps speech-language pathologists do just that. Dynamic Evaluation of Motor Speech Skill (DEMSS) is a criterion-referenced assessment designed to help with differential diagnosis of speech sound disorders in children with severely impaired speech production. Developed by one of the leading experts on childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) and an expert on test development, this tool is an efficient way to assess children who have significant speech impairment, especially reduced phonemic and/or phonetic inventories, vowel or prosodic errors, poor speech intelligibility, and/or little to no verbal communication. USE DEMSS TO Diagnose severe speech sound disorders in children 3 and older Facilitate, confirm, or rule out a diagnosis of CAS Estimate the severity of a child's disorder and what their prognosis might be Inform the development of treatment goals Make decisions about the most effective methods of cueing during treatment How It Works DEMSS is a dynamic assessment administered by SLPs in a clinical setting, usually in about 30 minutes or less. The child is tested on production of 60 utterances, divided into eight grouped sets according to syllable structure. For each item on the DEMSS, the SLP provides a verbal model, asks the child for a direct imitation, and follows up with more cues and supports if the child's first attempt is incorrect. Scoring takes into account overall accuracy in producing the word, vowel accuracy, consistency of production, and accuracy of prosodic features of the word. After administering DEMSS and determining results, SLPs can schedule a follow-up meeting with the child's parents to share results and make recommendations. Clear and comprehensive guidance is available to DEMSS users. The manual walks SLPs through every step of test administration and scoring, as well as interpretation. The accompanying video tutorial gives users a helpful overview of DEMSS and guides them through two administrations of the entire tool with two different patients: one with mild CAS and one with more severe CAS. Purchase the DEMSS manual and get everything you need! The manual includes a keycode that unlocks access to the video tutorial and free unlimited DEMSS forms, downloadable online.

Explanation of the Book:

Motor speech disorders are a common accompaniment of a whole range of neurological conditions, from stroke, brain injury and Parkinson’s disease through to many rarer conditions. This book aims to aid understanding of the nature of motor speech disorders from a cross-language perspective, in contrast to the largely English-centric nature of research and practice recommendations to date. The book looks not just at how these motor speech disorders are assessed and treated in other countries, but also examines how underlying speech impairments differ according to the language someone speaks. The book studies the underlying neurological, neurophysiological and neurophonetic characteristics of motor speech disorders in different language contexts, and discusses the implications these have for clinical rehabilitation. This significantly adds to debates around the theoretical understanding and clinical management of motor speech disorders.

Explanation of the Book:

Childhood Motor Speech Disabilities provides a comprehensive, up-to-date outline of all childhood motor speech disabilities.This book also gives readers a complete picture of the major nervous system disorders associated with dysarthria, presents the five types of childhood dysarthria, and clarifies the classification of childhood dysarthria. The eight years since the publication of the first edition have seen an increased interest in the nature and habilitation of the controversial disorder known as developmental verbal dyspraxia (DVD). The heated controversy and intense interest in DVD is questioned and put in perspective by pointing out that it is a low frequency pediatric phonological disorder compared to the widespread phonological delay of unknown origin.Childhood Motor Speech Disability also reviews and critiques a three-part research study by JSHR and two major textbooks that have been published since the first edition.For readers interested in childhood motor speech disabilities.
