At SSNR we treat individuals who have experienced a change to their voice. We offer speech therapy for individuals with Parkinson’s disease and provide SPEAK OUT! Created by The Parkinson’s Voice Project which is a specialized program designed to improve voice function, loundess, and clarity.
Common impairments in speech function related to Parkinson’s disease include
- Soft , quiet sounding voice
