There are three broad types of speech disorder that can arise from brain damage: dysarthria; apraxia (or dyspraxia); aphasia (or dysphasia). The first two affect the muscular control or coordination of speech. In contrast, aphasia is a language disorder. Here the speech impairment is part of a complex of symptoms, typically involving several aspects of communication. This chapter discusses therapies for people with dysarthria and apraxia of speech, and remediation of spoken language impairments in aphasia.

Keywords:   speech disorders, dysarthria, apraxia, aphasia, brain damage, language impairment
