Apraxia of Speech (AOS) is best considered a deficit of motor programming. However, the exact nature of this deficit remains unclear. One aspect of motor programming involves assignment of temporal structure. In this case, people with AOS would demonstrate parallel deficits in limbs as found in speech. This study examined motor programming in AOS in the context of a 2-process model of motor programming, using a reaction time paradigm to investigate sequential finger movements in patients with AOS. Results revealed a motor programming deficit for finger movements, and will be discussed in relation to current models of (speech) motor control.
