Lee Silverman Voice Treatment
The Lee Silverman Voice Treatment–known as LSVT LOUD–is a treatment used by our certified speech-language pathologists to treat speech disorders often associated with Parkinson’s disease. This approach stresses the idea of "thinking loud in order to speak loud." It involves exaggerated motions and pronunciations, producing repetitive sounds at different octaves and holding sounds out for as long as possible. This is an intensive four week speech therapy program, which includes four daily therapy sessions per week.
