City Creek’s Speech-Language Pathologist is a SPEAK OUT!® Provider, trained by the Parkinson Voice Project® . SPEAK OUT!® is a speech therapy program designed for people with Parkinson’s and increased difficulty communicating. Many people with Parkinson’s develop a weaker voice, which can lead to significant speech and swallowing problems. SPEAK OUT!® is a program of individual speech therapy sessions and daily home practice, helping patients achieve louder, clearer, more expressive speech. Many who’ve completed this program report improved swallowing function as well. In order to maintain their improved skills and develop community with fellow SPEAK OUT! ® graduates, patients transition to LOUD Crowd® group sessions.
