*  Dysarthria - Speech Pathology - University of Rochester Medical Center
Among its many amazing functions, the brain controls several different mechanisms that are used to produce speech. When damage occurs in a certain region of the brain, it can have wide-ranging effects on your ability to form and say words that can be understood by others.. Dysarthria occurs when the part of the brain that controls speech production is damaged. When this happens, the muscles needed to make certain sounds may become weak or paralyzed. Someone with dysarthria may have trouble coordinating the lips, tongue, palate, jaw, and vocal chords. This can cause speech to be slurred, breathy, jerky, strained, and hard to understand.. Dysarthria is sometimes confused with apraxia of speech. Unlike apraxia, however, the speech errors that occur with dysarthria are highly consistent from one time to the next.. ...

*  What is Dysarthria? | Center for Speech Language Occupational and Behavior Therapy
Dysarthria is commonly caused by neurological conditions such as Parkinson's disease, Cerebral Palsy, Lou Gehrig's disease, or late stages of multiple sclerosis. It may also occur after a cerebral vascular accident (stroke), head trauma, tumor, or infection. Existing at birth or occurring over time, dysarthria is considered a disorder of movement. Symptoms occur due to paralysis, weakness, or incoordination of speech musculature and can be noticed in any of the components required for fluent speech. These include respiration (breathing), phonation (sound produced from the vibration of the vocal folds), resonance (the inflection or tone of voice), articulation (movement of oral structures) and prosody (quality and intensity of voice).. Dysarthria resulting from a stroke is generally broken into two categories based on site of lesion. Damage to upper motor neurons, UMN, those running from the brain to the spine, results in ...

*  Psychology of Medicine: Dysarthria
Dysarthrias are classified in multiple ways based on the presentation of symptoms. Specific dysarthrias include spastic (resulting from bilateral damage to the upper motor neuron), flaccid (resulting from bilateral or unilateral damage to the lower motor neuron), ataxic (resulting from damage to cerebellum), unilateral upper motor neuron (presenting milder symptoms than bilateral UMN damage), hyperkinetic and hypokinetic (resulting from damage to parts of the basal ganglia, such as in Huntington's disease or Parkinsonism), and the mixed dysarthrias (where symptoms of more than one type of dysarthria are present). The majority of dysarthric patients are diagnosed as having 'mixed' dysarthria, as neural damage resulting in dysarthria is rarely contained to one part of the nervous system â " for example, multiple strokes, traumatic brain injury, and some kinds of degenerative illnesses (such as amyotrophic ...

*  Features of Spontaneous Language in Speakers with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Dysarthria - The Aphasiology Archive
Language samples (picture description) produced by moderately dysarthric speakers with ALS were compared with those of gender and age matched controls. Results indicated that dysarthric speakers produced the same number of concepts but fewer words than controls. Efficiency (as measured by content units/minute and words/content unit) was maintained in the dysarthria group by shortening phrases, reducing the number of mazes, and increasing the number of nongrammatical phrases. Measures of vocabulary were not different for the two groups. Discussion will focus on whether language changes are a compensation for dysarthria or reflect a subtle change in language ability.. ...

*  Automated assessment and treatment of speech rate and intonation in dysarthria - Institutional Repository University of Antwerp
Prosody assessment and treatment in dysarthria is clinically relevant, since prosodic impairment can have a negative impact on speech intelligibility and thus on participation in daily life conversation. We propose a speech-technology based software tool that provides automated numerical and visual feedback on two important aspects of prosody: speech rate and intonation. The tool includes speech rate and intonation algorithms, both specifically developed for the analysis of Dutch dysarthric speech. The tool enables speech-language pathologists to obtain objective measures of these prosodic aspects in a standardized and fast way, and enables dysarthric speakers to practise their prosodic skills intensively without the presence of a speech-language pathologist being required. ...

This article describes intervention for dysarthria associated with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Five critical periods are presented including a stage with normal speech, detectable speech disturbance, behavioural intervention, use of augmentative communication, and loss of useful speech. Intervention strategies at each of these stages are outlined with the goal of maintaining functional communication regardless of the severity of dysarthria.. ALS is a rapidly progressive degenerative disease of unknown etiology involving the motor neurons of both the brain and spinal cord.1 The symptoms characteristic of ALS are generally classified by site of involvement (that is, upper motor neuron versus lower motor neuron) and by whether spinal nerves (those innervating the arms and legs) or bulbar nerves (those innervating the muscles of speech and swallowing) are involved.. ...

*  Young Patient With Aphasia, Monoparesis, Facial Drop, Facial Sensory Loss, Diplopia, Dysarthria, and Vertical Gaze Palsy |...
We present a case of a 40-year-old male without previous medical history and medication who denied tobacco smoking or alcohol abuse. He led a healthy lifestyle, and there were no cardiovascular risk factors in his family history. In October 2012, he experienced acute onset of horizontal diplopia while playing with his child. During the transport to the emergency room, he developed a left-sided facial drop and dysarthria. On arrival, he was immediately moved to the computed tomography (CT) room as a candidate for intravenous thrombolysis and was examined by a stroke neurologist. At that time, the patient's level of consciousness was slightly drowsy, but he was orientated. His pupils were equal with normal reactions to light. He had horizontal diplopia in either direction, more pronounced on the right side. The right eye was nasally deviated. There was no problem with vertical eye movements. He had facial sensory loss on the left side, left-sided facial drop causing ...

He had bilaterally prolonged P100 latency; left: 137 ms; right: 144 ms. P 37 was not recordable on either side while N 20 was normal. The inter latency difference between Ipsilateral R2 and Contralateral R2 was 6.15 ms, on the left side and normal on the right side. In the follow-up, there was normalization of the blink reflex study, improvement in P100 latency [left: 114 ms; right: 120 ms ...
