This article presents findings of a study which investigates the validity and reliability of a telerehabilitation application for assessing the speech and voice disorder associated with Parkinson's disease.

For the majority of parameters, comparable levels of agreement were achieved between the two environments. Online assessment of disordered speech and voice in Parkinson's disease appears to be valid and reliable. The telerehabilitation application described in this study provides evidence for the delivery of online assessment for the dysarthric speech disorder associated with Parkinson's disease.
