LSVT LOUD is an effective speech treatment for individuals with Parkinson disease or other neurological conditions. Common speech problems include:

  • Soft voice
  • Mumbled speech
  • Monotone Speech
  • Hoarse voice

The most effective way to improve speech is through therapy targeting muscles of the speech mechanism. Therapy focusing on the single goal of being loud results in:

  • Improved vocal loudness
  • Improved speech intelligibility
  • Improved facial expression
  • Improved confidence

Treatment for LSVT LOUD consists of:

  • 16 sessions over a single month (four days a week for four weeks)
  • Individual, one hour sessions with a certified therapist
  • Daily home practice

See a Speech Language Pathologist

  • Obtain an assessment of your speech as soon as possible
  • Learn to use a louder voice without straining for better communication
  • As a result of Parkinson disease, you will need to use more vocal effort to have a normal voice
  • If you cough or choke while eating, you may need a swallowing evaluation

Early intervention at the time of diagnosis to slow speech and motor deterioration is key
