This article is the second of two reports from the Academy of Neurologic Communication Disorders and Sciences (ANCDS) Writing Committee of Treatment Guidelines for AOS. The first report provided a review and evaluation of the AOS treatment evidence (Wambaugh, Duffy, McNeil, Robin, & Rogers, 2006a). The current report is focused on the aspects of guidelines development that followed the review of the evidence. The major categories of AOS treatments are described in terms of treatment techniques, targets, outcomes, candidacy, and evidence quality. In addition, this report provides the committee's treatment recommendations and suggestions for future research.
