SPEAK OUT!®
 

SPEAK OUT!® is a highly effective speech therapy program developed by Parkinson Voice Project.


SPEAK OUT!  typically consists of twelve speech therapy sessions. Together, the patient and their speech-language pathologist complete speech, voice, and cognitive exercises using a specialized workbook that Parkinson Voice Project provides to every person with Parkinson’s who is enrolled in the program. This unique and effective speech therapy emphasizes speaking with intent and converts speech from an automatic function to an intentional act. Upon completion of SPEAK OUT!, patients transition to The LOUD Crowd®.


Could Parkinson's be affecting your speech and swallowing?

Do people ask you to repeat?

Does your voice sound hoarse, scratchy, or breathy?

Does your family say you speak too softly?

Do you clear your throat often?

Is your voice strong on some days, weak on others?

Do you cough when you eat or drink?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you might benefit from SPEAK OUT!®.
