The Parkinson Voice Project has developed a two-part speech therapy program to help individuals with Parkinson’s regain and maintain effective communication: SPEAK OUT! ® Followed by The LOUD Crowd ® .
SPEAK OUT! ® places emphasis on speaking with intent and converting speech from an automatic function to an intentional act.
Together, patients and their speech-language pathologist work through a series of speech, voice, and cognitive exercises outlined in a SPEAK OUT! ® workbook.
The SPEAK OUT! ® program usually consists of 12 sessions, over a 4-week period.
