Maximizing communication

The speech therapy method used is Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT). LSVT is the “gold standard” in treating speech disorders in people who have Parkinson’s disease and consists of an intense therapy that teaches patient’s to develop the strength required to speak at a normal vocal loudness. 

Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults.
