Adult Service Areas - Dysarthria

Dysarthria is a motor speech disorder caused by weakness or paralysis of the muscles used for speech. The following areas of speech may be impaired: articulation, rate, volume, prosody and respiratory support. Dysarthria is the result of damage to the central or peripheral nervous system. Common causes include:

  • stroke
  • brain tumour
  • head trauma
  • neuromuscular diseases

If you or a loved one is suffering from dysarthria, contact Speech Pathways. We can initiate a treatment plan to improve speech intelligibility, thereby reducing feelings of isolation and frustration. Improved communication, improves relationships and overall quality of life.
