Auditory discrimination as a condition for E-learning based Speech Therapy: A proposal for an Auditory Discrimination Test (ADT) for adult dysarthric speakers

Conclusions
The results of the healthy control group show that the majority of the ADT items meet our criterion for sensitivity to diminished auditory discrimination. The poorer performance of dysarthric patients across all subtests supports the sensitivity of the ADT. However, further research involving larger and more homogeneous groups of neurological patients is required.

Learning outcomes: Readers will be encouraged to 1) identify potential factors that may hinder web based speech training, 2) estimate the value of assessing auditory discrimination skills as a vital condition for (web based) speech training in dysarthric patients.
