      In some types of muscular dystrophy, weakness in the facial and oral muscles that control the use of the tongue, lips, soft palate, cheeks, and diaphragm results in problems with speech quality (dysarthria) and voice quality (dysphonia).

      Although there is no cure for MD, speech and language therapy can help with the associated problems of muscular dystrophy. Including working with a speech and language therapist on eating, drinking, and swallowing difficulties, improving communication, and investigating different ways of communicating, including communication aids.

      Have you noticed the quality of speech your speech has changed depending on the severity of your MD? Such as having to repeat what you say, nasally sounding voice, hoarseness, shorter stretches of speech, a slow speech rate, or a decrease in volume and intelligibility?
