Neuromuscular disease can affect a person's speech, voice, breath support and overall effectiveness in verbal communication. Swallowing disorders may also appear concurrently especially as some diseases progress.
Specialized clinicians measure and assess all aspects of a person’s speech, voice and breath support often using computer technology and electroacoustic diagnostic instruments.
An individualized treatment program is designed of techniques and exercises to help the person improve or compensate for the motor and/or sensory loss affecting their communication skills.
The exercises and compensations can improve or at least maintain muscle strength and coordination for people with neuromuscular problems.
This program is often short term with the goal of teaching the individual the exercises and compensations so that they are comfortable in using them on their own.
Augmentive and alternative communication devices may be recommended to assist with verbal communication in the more advanced cases
