Voice Disorders



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

SPEAK OUT! typically consists of twelve individual speech therapy sessions conducted by a speech language pathologist trained by Parkinson Voice Project. Together, the patient and the speech language pathologist work their way through a series of speech, voice, and cognitive exercises outlined in a comprehensive workbook provided to every patient in the U.S. as a gift from Parkinson Voice Project. The primary goals of SPEAK OUT! are to strengthen the muscles used for speaking and swallowing and to teach patients how to speak with intent and deliberation.

Parkinson’s is a progressive disease and it is necessary to meet the challenge of maintaining the speech and swallowing gains attained from the intensive therapy program. The Loud Crowd provides support, encouragement, and continued care from a certified speech pathologist. Patients who participate in continued voice maintenance have been shown to maintain their improved voices.
