Adult Aphasia and Parkinson's Treatment
Starting in September From Play to Words will be offering adult individual and group treatment. A Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT-LOUD) trained clinician is available for consultation to clients and families.
LSVT LOUD research data supports improvements in vocal loudness, intonation and voice quality, maintained over two years post-treatment. Research also supports improvements in clarity of speech, improved facial expression and improved swallowing. LSVT LOUD improves vocal loudness by stimulating speech muscles through systematic exercises. LSVT LOUD has been applied to individuals with stroke, multiple sclerosis, Down syndrome, and cerebral palsy with positive outcomes.
