Product Details

The second edition of Frenchay Dysarthria Assessment (FDA-2) includes new powerful knowledge about motor speech disorders and their contribution to neurological diagnosis. This updated edition remains a well-established test for the measurement, differential description, and diagnosis of dysarthria. It can be used in research, as well as all clinical settings.

FDA-2 is quick and simple to administer, accurate, reliable, and cost-efficient. The client is rated on a number of simple performance tasks related to speech function. It is divided into eight sections:

  1. Reflexes - ratings for cough, swallow, and dribble/drool
  2. Respiration - ratings at rest and in speech
  3. Lips - ratings for at rest, spread, seal, alternate, and in speech
  4. Palate - ratings for fluids, maintenance, and in speech
  5. Laryngeal - ratings for time, pitch, volume, and in speech
  6. Tongue - ratings for at rest, protrusion, elevation, lateral, alternate, and in speech
  7. Intelligibility - ratings for words, sentences, and conversation
  8. Influencing Factors - includes hearing, sight, teeth, language, mood, posture, rate (words per minute), and sensation

The test results can be recorded on the FDA-2 Rating Form, indicating both the clients strengths and weaknesses. The Rating Form also allows the clinician to compare the clients performance across all the items. Normative data are reported for adults without dysarthria as well as patients with specific dysarthria associated with confirmed medical diagnoses.
