Dysarthria Treatment Manual By Beth Kaufman-Katz

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 ù many appropriate for home programs ù 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.
