LSVT – LOUD for LIFE Group Classes

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 11:15 am on Tuesday, repeating until October 4, 2022

LSVT LOUD for LIFE is an effective speech treatment for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and other neurological conditions.  Named for Mrs. Lee Silverman (Lee Silverman Voice Treatment), a woman living with PD, it was developed by Dr. Lorraine Ramig and has been scientifically studied for over 25 years with support from the National Institute for Deafness and other Communication Disorders within the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other funding organizations. LSVT LOUD trains people with PD to use their voice at a more normal loudness level while speaking at home, work, or in the community. Key to the treatment is helping people “recalibrate” their perceptions so they know how loud or soft they sound to other people and can feel comfortable using a stronger voice at a normal loudness level.

These classes will help you be HEARD! LSVT LOUD for LIFE has the potential to produce significant improvements even for people facing considerable communication difficulties. Email rehabcenter@rvnahealth.org for questions or to sign up.
