Dysarthria is a group of motor speech disorder resulting from a disturbance of motor control of the speech mechanism. In the approach of dysarthric speech, most study was based on perceptural analysis by subjective judgement. However, objective assessment of the acoustic features of distored articulation is necessary for quantitative evaluation of the motor control disturbance and estimate the effect of treatment in dysarthric patients. Computerized speech analysis systems such as sound spectrograph and Nasometerare recently developed for that purpose and can be applicated in clinical setting. We report a patient with dysarthria and athetoid type cerebral palsy who was evaluated by computerized sound spectrograph and Nasometer before and after speech therapy. We concluded that computerized sound spectrograph and Nasometer were considered as a useful tool of quantitative assessment of dysarthria and the effect of speech therapy.
