Description



Target Group: Adults with dysarthria



This
practical manual emphasizes self-monitoring and self-reliance. Dozens of
exercises will keep your clients' progress on track. It begins with an
introduction to dysarthria: its definitions, types, etiology, prognosis,
principles of therapy, and treatment goals. Client and family handouts
provide education, and a simple communication board helps people through
the rough spots. Creative exercises many appropriate for home programs
present intriguing characters and situations as they address:

  • oral-motor exercises
  • resonance
  • phonation
  • relaxation
  • respiration
  • prosody
  • intelligibility in utterances of increasing length and complexity
  • articulation in CVC syllables, minimal pairs, phrases, and sentences


Advanced exercises feature the author's fabulous phonemic menus, e.g.
Maddy's Pub (bilabials) and Yogi's Rib House (glides and glottals). This
reproducible resource is a must for any clinician working with clients
with dysarthria.
