SPEAK OUT!® and LOUD Crowd®
The Stanley Center for Speech and Language Disorders is providing a two-part therapy program to help those with Parkinson's disease regain and maintain their speaking abilities. This speech therapy program was developed by Parkinson Voice Project in Richardson, Texas, and is being provided in our clinic at no charge to our Parkinson's community.
SPEAK OUT!® – This program typically consists of 12 speech therapy sessions and daily home practice, emphasizing speaking with intent and converting speech from an automatic function to an intentional act. Upon graduation from SPEAK OUT!, patients transition to the LOUD Crowd.
LOUD Crowd® – The LOUD Crowd is a maintenance program for Parkinson’s patients to continue practicing the exercises learned in the SPEAK OUT! program and to provide support and encouragement for each other.
LOUD Crowd and SPEAK OUT! sessions are offered face-to-face or via teletherapy.
