Lauren Bislick

PhD, CCC-SLP

Lauren Bislick, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, is an Assistant Professor in the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando, FL. Dr. Bislick is the director of the Aquired Neurogenic Communication Disorders (ANCD) Research Lab at UCF, and a research affiliate in the Aphasia Research Lab at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. Her research primarily focuses on the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of acquired apraxia of speech, a motor speech disorder that typically results from left hemisphere stroke. Dr. Bislick's long-term goal and current area of focus is the development of an effective treatment program for the rehabilitation of acquired apraxia of speech and the implementation of this treatment program into clinical practice.

It is well documented in the limb motor literature that providing the optimal practice and feedback conditions can have positive outcomes for the learning of new movements. The question is whether these training conditions, referred to as the principles of motor learning (PML), are applicable to speech training in healthy adults and the treatment of motor speech disorders (MSDs). The purpose of this presentation is to introduce clinicians to motor learning theory and the PML, as well as explore studies that have investigated the application of these principles to speech training and rehabilitation. Findings from the literature will help guide clinical practice by identifying conditions shown to enhance (re)learning and retention of speech abilities compromised by neurologic disease, as well as promote the transfer of (re)learned skills.

Principles of Motor Learning and Apraxia of Speech Treatment

Presented by Lauren Bislick, PhD, CCC-SLP

Principles of Motor Learning and Apraxia of Speech Treatment

In the past decade, there has been a trend towards the use of the Principles of Motor Learning (PML) for the treatment of motor speech disorders. In particular, most investigations have focused on the use of the PML for the treatment of acquired apraxia of speech (AOS). These principles identify conditions of practice and types of feedback thought to promote generalization and maintenance of trained skills. Although the research on PML for speech rehabilitation is still in the early stages of investigation, there are some promising results. In addition, the current treatment programs for speakers with AOS incorporate motor learning theory and PML. Findings from the literature will help guide clinical practice by identifying practice and feedback conditions shown to promote generalization and maintenance of trained skills in individuals with acquired AOS, as well as highlight those principles currently incorporated into established treatment programs.
