Dysarthria is a type of speech problem. This research aims to understand the recovery from this speech problem, and how to measure it. This can lead the way for better treatments and care to be developed.
PLORAS provides new stroke patients that have aphasia with information on how other patients, with the same type of stroke damage, recovered over time.
Aphasia is a long-term condition and many people will continue to need support for several years after its onset. However, with the right tools and support, even someone with severe aphasia can continue to communicate effectively.
The project aims to employ similar techniques to the PLORAS project to predict which patients are most suited to which speech and language therapy.
