Abstract

Recent models of speech encoding suggest that movement plans for frequently used words are stored and that not all output is encoded by a process of segment-by segment assembly (Levelt, et al., 1999; Whiteside & Varley, 1998; Varley & Whiteside, 2001). We explore the implications of this view for the management of apraxia of speech (AOS). In a treatment study, the effectiveness of a computer-administered, word-level therapy was examined.
