Our Speech Therapy Program

Parkinson Voice Project has developed an effective program that combines education, individual speech therapy (SPEAK OUT!), and ongoing group sessions (The LOUD Crowd). Click on each box below for more information.

After the patient and family attend a Parkinson’s Information Session, it is time to begin SPEAK OUT! The program typically consists of twelve speech therapy sessions and daily home practice.

Together, the patient and speech-language pathologist complete speech, voice and cognitive exercises using a specialized workbook that Parkinson Voice Project provides to every person with Parkinson’s in the U.S. who is receiving SPEAK OUT! Our organization provides a free digital version of the workbook for patients living outside of the United States. Unfortunately, it is cost prohibitive to ship the workbook internationally.

SPEAK OUT! emphasizes speaking with intent and converts speech from an automatic function to an intentional act. Upon graduation from SPEAK OUT!, patients transition to The LOUD Crowd.
