SPEAK OUT! & The LOUD Crowd Provider

 The AU Speech-Language & Hearing Clinic received a grant from the Parkinson Voice Project® to implement SPEAK OUT!® and LOUD Crowd® therapy programs on campus.

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.  

Services Begin January 2019!

Contact the AU Speech & Hearing Clinic at  speech@andrews.edu or (269) 471-3468 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
