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.
