Objective :
To investigate the therapeutic effect of scalp acupuncture on dysarthria after stroke.

Methods :
A-B model in single subject research. The experimental group of 7 members received scalp acupuncture and the control group of 5 nothing for dysarthria itself. Five single vowels were recorded by voice recorder and measured for 1st & 2nd formant. By the formants, a vowel space was made according to each one of the patients. Praat program was used for evaluation.

4 cases in the experimental group showed significant change and just 1 case of the none-operated group got better.

In this study, it's proven that acupuncture treatment might have positive efficacy on dysarthria cases. At this moment, more clinical reports are needed for objective oriental medical study.
Key words: dysarthria, scalp acupuncture, vowel space, formant
