LSVT HELPFUL LINK
SPEECHTraxx is passionate about improving the quality of communication
of clients with Parkinsons's disease, through the use of LSVT.
LSVT is widely becoming the standard in speech therapy for patients with
Parkinson's disease. Nearly 8 million individuals worldwide have idiopathic PD.
60,000 Ameicans are diagnosed anually.
89% of patirnts with PD are effected by disordered speech,
typically characterized by speech that is weak, inarticulate
and low volume.
LSVT consists of a regimented course of 16 treatments
over a 30 day period. Each hour long session focuses on
a systematic hierarchy of excercises used to stimulate the
muscles of the larynx ("voice Box") to improve loudness.
Other proven outcomes include improvements in:
• Intonation - pitch
• Vocal quality
• Diminished facial expression
Developed and researched since 1987, LSVT improvements have been found to be effective up to two
years following the completion of the program.
