Mihaela Maria TELCEAN, Anamaria-Rada BERESCHI-BENE, Cristina SIBEF

This paper focuses on the importance of early intervention on language development in children with ataxic dysarthria, taking into account that they face various breathing, articulation, phonetic, resonance and suprasegmental difficulties. Coordination disorders, difficulties in walking, abundant salivation, low muscle tone and jerky speech are also known disorders met in ataxic dysarthria.
All these disorders have a negative impact on the quality of life of the individuals diagnosed with this condition, so early intervention is necessary.
This paper aims to bring forward an approach based on developing the suprasegmental component of communication, the abilities of immediate imitation, focused attention, establishing visual contact, developing the phono articulatory apparatus mobility using classical exercises as well as orofacial stimulation (Morales Technique and using special instruments – Sensory therapy instruments, Z-vibe – an instrument with vibrations), developing breathing, articulation, phonetic and resonance skills, developing active vocabulary, taking into account the final aim, developing a functional and efficient communication.

Keywords: Ataxic Dysarthria, Early Intervention, Glucose Transporter Type 1 Deficiency Syndrome.
