    Diagnosis Destinations  Dysarthria

    What is dysarthria?

    Dysarthria is a motor speech disorder, associated with the production of speech. Dysarthria is due to a weakness or incoordination of the speech muscles. Speech is slow, weak, imprecise or uncoordinated. It can affect both children and adults.

    "There is often difficulty with getting enough air support during speech, voice problems, slurred speech sounds and too much nasality (air coming through the nose).

    Dysarthria can vary greatly in severity. For some children, it is very mild and has little effect on the understandability of speech. Some children may be difficult to understand and will need therapy to improve their speech.

    ...children with dysarthria often have difficulties with language, learning and other aspects of motor development..."

    From the Mayo Clinic (Rochester), Child and Adolescent Care.
