Event description

Description

January 5 - February 23

Thursdays from 5-6 pm

8-week class

Are you often asked to repeat a statement?

Do you feel like people don’t listen to you anymore?

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. We have developed this program for you to pair with your treatment plan, for those who would like to improve their speech and communication abilities.

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.


Instructed by

Drew Douglass, MS, CCC-SLP

This is exclusively for people experiencing these communication problems. Care partners provide the best support when they encourage practice between sessions.
