Flashcards in Evaluation of Motor Speech Disorders Deck (14):
1

What are the 2 basic methods of evaluating motor speech disorders?

Perceptual Analysis and Instrumentation

2

Which method is the "gold standard" for evaluation MSDs?

Perceptual Analysis

3

Why is their poor agreement amongst SLPs when evaluation MSDs?

because individuals have difficulty attending to more than 1 aspect of a pathological acoustic signal

4

What is included in an auditory perceptual assesment?

Oral mech exam and a speech exam (vowel prolongations, SMRs/AMRs, reading, and conversation)

5

What motor characteristics do we take into consideration?

Symmetry
Strength
Speed of movement
Range of movement
Steadiness
Tone
Accuracy

6

The gag reflex is clinically significant only if it is _______ elicited.

asymmetrically

7

What are some possible oral reflexes to assess?

Gag reflex, jaw jerk, sucking reflex, snout and palmomental

8

What are the 5 components necessary for normal speech production needed to be assessed?

respiration, phonation, resonance, articulation, prosody

9

______ is the primary function of speech production.

Respiration

10

provides subglottic air pressure needed to set VFs into vibration

Respiration

11

production of voiced phonemes through VF vibration in larynx

phonation

12

proper placement of oral or nasal tonality onto phonemes during speech accomplished by raising and lowering of velum (VP closure)

resonance

13

shaping of voal air stream into phonemes

articulation

14

melody of speech, using stress and intonation to convey meaning

prosody
