Historically, dysarthria research predominantly focused on the characterisation and classification of dysarthria in adults, with considerably less research effort being devoted to determining speech features in children with dysarthria. This is not surprising, given the complexities that come with describing and classifying atypical speech in a group whose motor system is yet to fully develop and mature. More recently though, research in this field has gained momentum and the papers by Schoelderle et al.1 and Veenhuis et al.2 augment our growing knowledge of the classification and assessment of dysarthria in children.
