SPEAK OUT! addresses the motor speech deficits associated with Parkinsonism. This two-part therapy program was specifically developed to be practical and efficient in order to comply with insurance limitations, productivity standards, and other administrative constraints. The program is based on the teachings of Daniel R. Boone, PhD, CCC-SLP, a world-renowned speech-language pathologist and voice expert, who recognized in the late 1950's that individuals with Parkinson’s could improve their communication if they spoke with “intent.”
SPEAK OUT! combines speech, voice, and cognitive exercises laid out in a SPEAK OUT! Workbook. This training course includes instruction on individual therapy (SPEAK OUT!), group therapy (The LOUD Crowd), documentation, marketing, and Parkinson Voice Project’s music program. There are no certification or renewal fees associated with SPEAK OUT!
Every speech-language pathologist who completes SPEAK OUT! training, whether in-person or online, will have access to SPEAK OUT! Clinical Resources on Parkinson Voice Project's website and is entitled to receive a SPEAK OUT! Therapy Kit as a gift from Parkinson Voice Project.
In order to have access to the clinical resources and to receive the Therapy Kit, a new SPEAK OUT! Provider must first visit www.ParkinsonVoiceProject.org and login from the homepage.
