Dysarthria cannot be completely cured but it can be brought to lower level of intensity. There are absolutely no drug treatments for dysarthria but intense levels of speech therapy can be given which usually can be of great benefit. "Treatment depends on the cause, type, and severity of the symptoms." It is best if a speech-language pathologist works with the person to improve their communication capacities. The speech-language pathologist (SLP) may also work with the patients caregivers in order for them to better understand the person struggling with dysarthria.
