« Back to Glossary Index

Dysarthria is a motor speech disorder caused by damage to the nerves and muscles involved in speech production. It is characterized by slurred, slow, or otherwise distorted speech. Symptoms of dysarthria can include difficulty forming words, slurred speech, difficulty controlling the volume of speech, and difficulty controlling the pitch and rhythm of speech. Dysarthria can be caused by a variety of conditions, including stroke, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Treatment for dysarthria typically involves speech therapy, which can help improve speech clarity and volume.
