Perceptual and instrumental assessments of orofacial muscle tone in dysarthric and normal speakers

Angela M. Dietsch, PhD, et al.

Patients who have experienced traumatic brain injury and stroke are common in military as well as civilian hospitals. These patients are referred regularly to speech-language pathology services for thorough, objective evaluation of their speech and swallowing mechanisms. Research is needed to develop and validate the tools and procedures of speech-language pathology assessment and intervention. Such methods will allow speech-language pathologists to better document changes over time that might occur with disease progression, disuse atrophy, or therapeutic intervention. We present several studies on the development of a method for the objective evaluation of muscle tone in orofacial muscles.
