Event Details

 

Communication Skills Group in Eugene, Oregon

About seventy-five percent of people with PD have changes in their speech, voice and swallowing at some point during the course of the disease. The same PD symptoms that occur in muscles of the body, tremor, stiffness and slow movement - can occur in the muscles used in speaking: A soft voice, mumbled or fast speech, loss of facial expression and problems communicating. This program includes exercises and discussion and practice of strategies that can help in day-to-day settings.  Participants give each other feedback in a safe and supportive setting.  

Instructor:  Drew Douglass, MS, CCC-SLP

This program is not meant to replace speech therapy, but is a safe place to learn and practice new

communication skills and memory strategies.  It is appropriate for those who have completed the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment, (LSVT) as well as those who haven’t.

Registration for this class is available via phone call only, not online. Please call Libby Kennard today to register: 541-345-2988
