This study aims to collect the views of persons with slurred speech with current speech-language therapy practices for slurring of speech (dysarthria). We are also interested in understanding whether persons with slurred speech would be interested in participating in research involving new treatment opportunities.

To participate in this study, you must:

  1. be at least 18 years of age
  2. have dysarthria (slurring of speech) due to a medical condition or accident, such as, stroke, Parkinson’s disease
  3. have attended or are currently attending speech-language therapy to treat the condition
  4. have functional English language abilities

If you wish to participate in the study, which only takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete, we would appreciate it if you complete the online questionnaire by clicking on the below link.

If the survey does not open in your Internet web browser, please type the address exactly as shown above in the address line of your web browser.

Prior to starting the survey questions, you will be asking for your voluntary consent. A participant information sheet is also attached in the cover page of the online questionnaire. Participation in the study is voluntary. Nevertheless, should you be interested in participating in future research on slurring of speech, you will still be given the option to voluntarily provide us with your e-mail address.
