Abstract/Summary Speech disturbance is a hallmark of Parkinson disease (PD) and has been identified in up to 90% of people, with the severity of the disorder generally increasing over time (Hartelius & Svensson, 1994; Logemann, Fisher, Boshes, & Blonsky, 1978). The decline in communication skills has a significant impact on the quality of life of the person with PD, and their families. Considerable personal effort and healthcare resources are required to manage this speech disorder in order to maintain communication throughout the course of the disease. The speech disturbance, known as hypokinetic dysarthria, has been studied extensively to acquire a greater understanding of the prevalence and nature of the disorder, the effects of medical and surgical interventions on speech, and the impact of this communication impairment on the social interactions and quality of life of people with PD.
