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.
