Every human being tries to communicate what he wants to say to whatever or whomever he wants. Dysarthria is a condition in which the muscles in humans that are active when speaking become weak or difficult to control. Problems or speech disorders experienced by a child with dysarthria are obstacles to children's social and personal adjustment. Schoolchildren who mispronounce the words will feel ashamed and alien from others. This problem motivates the presence of Multisensory Stimulation therapy to help improve and even restore speech problems or disorders experienced by children with dysarthria. This study tries to explain the impact of Multisensory Stimulation therapy and then evaluates the results of the application of Multisensory Stimulation therapy to children with dysarthria. The study that took five sufferers as the object of this study used a hybrid approach that mutually used a qualitative and quantitative perspective. The type of research used is classroom action research. This study concluded that the participants' enthusiasm greatly influenced the process and outcome of therapy.
