Maladie de Friedreich : auto-évaluation du handicap de la voix et de la parole

Abstract : The goal of this study carried out on French speaking participants with Friedreich’s ataxia, a rare autosomal recessive disease, was to provide an insight into living with voice and speech impairments. 26 participants with FRDA were made aware of the conceptual differences between voice and speech through a presentation, following which they completed the French versions of the Voice Handicap Index and the Speech Handicap Index. The SHI/VHI difference was statistically not significant suggesting that patients with FRDA self-evaluate their phonation and arthric handicaps at the same pathologic level. VHI and SHI scores were correlated. However, more thorough investigation revealed two groups: one with a more dysphonic profile, and the other with a more dysarthric profile.
