Dysarthria is diagnosed when a patient presents with weakness of his or her articulators. This problem can affect all aspects of articulation including respiration (breathing) and phonation (use of voice). Sound errors tend to be consistent with dysarthria and the quality of speech is slurred as though the child is speaking with marbles in the mouth.
