Parkinson's Rehab Programs

Since Parkinson’s is a progressive, degenerative condition, maintaining the strength of one’s voice can be a challenge. Essentia offers a two-part therapy program designed to strengthen the muscles used for speaking and swallowing and to teach patients how to speak with intent and deliberation.

SPEAK OUT!® is a highly effective speech therapy program for individuals with Parkinson's disease. The program typically consists of 12 individual therapy sessions conducted by a speech pathologist. Together, the patient and the speech pathologist work their way through a series of speech, voice, and cognitive exercises outlined in a comprehensive workbook.

Upon completion of SPEAK OUT!®, patients enter a maintenance phase called LOUD Crowd® that provides on-going vocal practice as well as support and encouragement.

This two-part rehab program is offered at no cost to patients thanks to support from the Essentia Health-St. Joseph's Foundation.
