Münchner Verständlichkeitsprofil (MVP)
The dysarthrias are disorders of the respiratory, laryngeal, and articulatory movements during speaking, as a result of brain damage. They constitute the most frequent type of neurogenic communication disorders, with a prevalence of more than 300,000 dysarthric patients in Germany. Many dysarthric patients have a reduced intelligibility, which may cause severe restrictions in everyday communication and social participation.
The measurement of a patient’s intelligibility is therefore an essential part of clinical assessment. Intelligibility scores must be a starting point of any therapeutic intervention and a benchmark for therapeutic effectiveness or disease progression.
The Munich Intelligibility Profile (MVP-Online) offers speech language therapists online access to a reliable and valid instrument for the assessment of a patient’s intelligibility. It provides an individual intelligibility profile containing information about important factors influencing loss of intelligible speech.
MVP-Online is supported by ReHa-Hilfe e.V.
