Hearing Aids Repair and Services
Dysarthria and apraxia are speech disorders that can impact a person's ability to produce clear and intelligible speech. These conditions may arise due to neurological conditions, muscle weakness, or difficulties with motor planning and coordination. At Mythri Speech & Hearing Center, we specialize in assessing and treating dysarthria and apraxia, providing comprehensive support to individuals facing these challenges.
Understanding Dysarthria & Apraxia
Dysarthria is a motor speech disorder that affects the muscles used for speech production. It can result in slurred speech, imprecise articulation, weak or strained voice, and difficulties with controlling the volume and rate of speech. Apraxia, on the other hand, is a motor planning disorder that affects the ability to execute precise and coordinated movements required for speech production. Individuals with apraxia may struggle with sequencing sounds and syllables, resulting in inconsistent and effortful speech.
