Speech Treatment for Parkinson Disease: The Science and Practice of LSVT LOUD™
You are invited to attend a two-hour interactive symposium on speech disorders and speech treatment for people with Parkinson disease (PD). This symposium is FREE so it is a wonderful opportunity for people with PD, family members and friends, and other healthcare professionals who want to learn more about speech and PD to attend.
The symposium will include a 1-hour lecture presented by world experts in speech treatment for people with Parkinson disease. This lecture will be followed by an interactive session where participants with Parkinson disease are invited to interact with speech therapists practicing vocal exercises (LSVT LOUD).
1) Present the background and motivation for voice treatment in Parkinson disease.
This research was funded, in part, by the National Institutes of Health and Michael J Fox Foundation.
