Dysarthria after stroke is one of the most common speech problems that

may occur.  It is caused by damage to the left hemisphere of the brain, which controls speech.

When a person acquires dysarthria, it is because the muscles in the mouth
have been weakened due to the stroke.  They are unable to speak, yet they


are able to understand everything said to them.  They are unable to get the
words out. 

A person with dysarthria is able to write their thoughts down, in order to
communicate with others.  There are exercises that you can do, to help
straighthen these muscles. 

The type of dysarthria you have and the severity of it, will depend on the
type of therapy and exercises you need.
