Voice – LSVT
Is your voice soft, weak or mumbly?
The Center for Speech and Language, T.C., LLC has speech language pathologists certified in the LSVT-Loud method of voice restoration pioneered for use with patients having a diagnosis of Parkinson disease.
LSVT stands for Lee Silverman Voice Treatment.
LSVT is an innovative and clinically-proven method for improving communication in individuals with Parkinson disease with application to other neurological conditions.
To quote the developers of the LSVT Loud method:
“While the standardized protocol for LSVT LOUD was developed before these recent neuroscience investigations, it adheres to key principles of neural plasticity (intensity, complexity, saliency, use it or lose it, and use it and improve it) which are likely additional explanations for why LSVT LOUD has been successful” (Fox et al., 2006;Farley, Fox, Ramig and McFarland, in press).
