Acquired apraxia of speech (AOS) is a neurogenic, phonetic-motoric disorder of speech production that reflects a disruption in the translation of intact phonological representations into commands for carrying out the intended speech movements. This report describes recent contributions made by Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) investigators to our evolving knowledge base regarding AOS. DVA researchers, both past and present, are responsible for a substantial portion of the diagnosis and treatment research evidence for AOS with future contributions being likely due to the continued support of the DVA.
