RSC (Rhythmic Speech Cueing)

Rhythmic Speech Cueing is the use of rhythmic cueing to control the initiation and rate of speech thru cueing and pacing. The therapist may use the client’s hand, a drum, or possibly a metronome to prime speech patterns or pace the rate of speech. This technique can be useful to facilitate motor planning for a patient with apraxia, to cue muscular coordination for dysarthria, or assist in pacing with fluency disorders.
