Poster Presentation
Optional Fields
The use of nonspeech oral motor exercises (NSOMEs) for treating children’s speech disorders in Ireland was surveyed – 56% (22/39 SLTs) used them mainly as “warm up”, mostly for Apraxia of Speech, dysarthrias, Down Syndrome. The results might reflect increasing awareness of lack of evidence regarding efficacy of NSOMEs.
