LSVT LOUD is a therapy method that trains people with Parkinson’s Disease to improve their voice and speech intelligibility. It has been researched and clinically proven to improve voice volume and speech intelligibility. LSVT LOUD follows a specific protocol of 16 one hour length sessions consisting of 4 sessions per week for 4 weeks. An initial assessment is completed measuring the clients voice volume, pitch range and sustained voicing. Goals are set based on each client’s level of performance.
Treatment hierarchy and practice topics are tailored to be meaningful to each client. You will learn how to improve your voice without hurting your voice. This is an intensive treatment program to maximize your improvement in voice function. Home practice and carryover assignments are key to improvement.
LSVT eLOUD gives clients access to the program via teletherapy. It allows more people access to services without the difficulties in transportation and travel time. Sessions are completed via a secure online video conferencing platform from your laptop or mobile device.
