Prosody in Congenital and Acquired Dysarthria

Prosody in Congenital and Acquired Dysarthria

Variations in timing and intonation of speech (i.e., prosody) are disrupted in dysarthria, a prevalent speech disorder resulting from congenital or acquired neurological conditions, in ways that impede communication. This project challenges existing clinical practice which assumes that prosodic impairments in dysarthria result from motor deficits alone, to account for the impact of development on speech motor learning. Findings from the project will inform new treatments that target differential deficits in speakers with congenital and acquired dysarthria, enabling more effective communication and thereby improving access to fuller educational, employment and social opportunities.
