Default Cerebellum and slurring of speech Therapy

I just learned that a shrunken cerebellum can not only cause balance and reflex problems (got those) but also slurred speech. (which I have.)
I met someone who was going to a speech therapist to work on this slurred speech problem caused by her cerebellum weirdness. Does anyone know more about it?

I have Cerebellar Degenerative Disease w/Ataxia which include many different symptoms. I do a great deal of research, well I used to, and never found any positive linkage to the Cerebellar Atrophy symptom of slurred speech improving through physical therapy.

When dealing with the Cerebellum, once physical deterioration or trauma occur there are no regenerative properties, which negates the possibility of recovery. Since it controls so much of our bodies activities, once a function is gone, there is little chance of recovery.

I'm just a regular guy with a little medical background and internet research abilities, I am not in the medical field. Therefore, I am simply sharing my experience and personal knowledge. I keep an open mind that anything is possible though.

Hey Kat!

After very careful consideration of your assumptions and inquiry, I've decided to address each point and question individually, to include great detail.
