Acquired motor speech disorders in persons with Movement Disorders can cause significant decrements to quality of life, social isolation, and depression. Movement Disorders often cause deficits across the neuroaxis and for that reason result in marked difficulties when it comes to management. The goal of this course is to provide participants with the tools needed to complete a comprehensive assessment of motor speech dysfunction in the most complex Movement Disorders patients. It is recommended that this course be followed-up with the Motor Speech Management of Complex Movement Disorders Patients course.
