Differential Diagnosis Among Motor Speech Disorders: The Rules of the Game

Presented by: Dr. Joseph R. Duffy, Ph.D., BC-NCD
Friday, September 27th, 2019 at the Ottawa Conference and Event Center Ottawa, ON

This workshop will address the clinical diagnosis of motor speech disorders (MSDs). The
contribution of MSD diagnosis to the localization and diagnosis of neurologic disease will be
highlighted. Neurologic correlates, confirmatory clinical signs and symptoms, assessment
procedures, and the distinguishing clinical perceptual characteristics of each of the major
dysarthria types and apraxia of speech will be described, illustrated, and compared. Numerous
audio and videotape samples will illustrate the salient and distinctive clinical features of each
MSD in a manner that will sharpen participants’ clinical diagnostic skills and understanding of
the meaning of important neurologic speech signs and symptoms.
