    ..Dysphagia contributes to a significant impairment in functional quality of life in ARSACS, and appears to manifest distinctly from other ARSACS dysfunctions such as ataxia or spasticity. ..

    ..The relationship between dysphonia and dysarthria in FRDA suggests that reducing overall dysphonia severity via therapeutic techniques that improve phonatory stability and increase speaking rate is a viable target for speech therapy. ..
