Description:    
This workshop will address the clinical diagnosis of motor speech disorders (MSDs). The contribution of MSD diagnosis to the localization and diagnosis of neurologic disease will be highlighted. Neurologic correlates, confirmatory clinical signs and symptoms, assessment procedures, and the distinguishing clinical perceptual characteristics of each of the major dysarthria types and apraxia of speech will be described, illustrated, and compared. Numerous audio and videotape samples will illustrate the salient and distinctive clinical features of each MSD in a manner that will sharpen participants’ clinical diagnostic skills and understanding of the meaning of important neurologic speech signs and symptoms.
