This is a group therapy class for speech therapy clients who have completed individual SPEAK OUT! therapy, which we also offer. In order to be considered for the SPEAK OUT! therapy and LOUD Crowd program, clients must have a referral from their physician to be evaluated and treated by a speech pathologist. If the SLP feels the patient will benefit from SPEAK OUT!, they will enroll them in individual treatment. Upon completion of the 4 week individual therapy program the patient will be able to join The LOUD Crowd. SPEAK OUT! is typically covered by insurance. The LOUD Crowd is free of charge thanks to a grant provided by the Parkinson Voice Project.
