development of treatment guidelines for acquired apraxia of speech (AOS). This
systematic review of the AOS treatment literature is a result the efforts of the Academy
of Neurologic Communication Disorders and Sciences (ANCDS) Writing Committee of
Treatment Guidelines for AOS. Fifty-six publications that met inclusion criteria were
reviewed in terms of over 30 variables pertaining to issues such as subject, treatment, and
outcome descriptions, and scientific adequacy. Although the review revealed many
weaknesses in the evidence base, findings indicated that patients with AOS can benefit
