SPEAK OUT!® is a highly effective speech therapy program developed by the Parkinson Voice Project®. It is the first step in the program’s two-part therapy approach, and typically consists of twelve individual speech therapy sessions conducted by a speech-language pathologist. The primary goals of this phase are to strengthen muscles used for speaking and swallowing and to teach patients how to speak with intent.
The LOUD Crowd® Services
"Upon completion of SPEAK OUT!®, patients will enter the maintenance phase of the therapy program, The LOUD Crowd®. This maintenance program consists of speech therapy groups and a singing program to help patients maintain the strength of their voices.

|PAY IT FORWARD|
The Parkinson Voice Project’s SPEAK OUT!® and The LOUD Crowd® programs at Andrews University does not charge patients for therapy services. We do not bill insurance or charge for treatment provided in our clinic. Instead, all speech therapy services use a “Pay It Forward” concept. This means that, people with Parkinson's and their families are encouraged to make a donation to help the next patient who needs speech therapy or materials.
