The LOUD Crowd® is a group speech therapy class developed by the Parkinson Voice Project. Due to the progressive nature of PD, the class is designed to help those who have completed SPEAK OUT! (individual speech therapy) to continue to progress. The LOUD Crowd® consists of weekly group sessions that provide accountability, education, camaraderie, and support to individuals with speech and voice disorders caused by PD.
There are two LOUD Crowd® classes offered based on each client’s specific needs. Level 1 is for those who may need modifications, or a little more help to complete the voice/speech exercises. Level 2 is more involved, and is intended for those who can do the Level 1 exercises with minimal assistance.
