Abstract

Each year an estimated 30,000–45,000 UK individuals experience stroke-related dysarthria (impairment of movements required to produce speech). Many will experience persistent dysarthria long after discharge from stroke
services. Although we have some insight into the impact of other communication impairments, we have very limited information on the impact of dysarthria on social participation. The purpose of this study was to explore the impact of dysarthria on social participation following stroke.
