I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
You want to know if you can fix a sudden low volume /pressure delivery problem on an American Standard model AS4205100 H7, one hole / single lever with pullout spray And is it fixable by owner?
Yes and maybe!
All plumbing systems are plauged with debrie buildup. Every time you turn on a faucet the water starts moving and will bring bits of debrie up from the water main or well. Most are small and will pass through to be caught by the screen in the aireator. Sometimes a relatively large piece comes along and dosen't make it through to the screen. It is stuck in the body of the valve.
Fixing takes a little mechanical ability.
First, turn off the water to the faucet in question. Then carefully disasemble paying close attention to the order of disasembly so you can reverse the order when putting back together. As each part is removed inspect it for that troublesome bit. I find that a little bit of wire or a paper clip is helpfull. Carefully reasemble. If the volume is still low then you missed finding that bit. Try again or call in a local pro.
Feel free contact me again!

I aasume this is single handle
You will need to remove the handle(usually hex screw under lever or bak side covered with small erasure size button
turn water (hot and cold) off under sink
remove the handle
take an adjustible wrench and remove the cartridge it is keyed
so ou can put it back roperly inspect the cartridge for any obstructions
go under sink and slowly turn hot water on and observe if water is coming out of faucet manifold
if water is coming out ok you may have a bad cartridge or had a blockage reinstall cartridge(after youturned water off
turn hot and cold water on under sink and try again
if it works great if not I suggest you take artridge out and replace

SOURCE: Water flow is too powerful..
I got you, you want a screen to be put on the spout!
check the inside of the spout. there may be a internal thread, if it is, then you can get a external thread screen from home depot.
