Regain Your Voice with SPEAK OUT!®
October 5, 2021
The Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) Program at Midwestern University College of Health Sciences in Glendale recently received a grant from the Parkinson Voice Project to help patients with Parkinson disease regain their voice through treatments at the University’s Therapy Institute. The Parkinson Voice Project’s mission is to preserve the speech and communication of individuals with Parkinson’s and related neurological disorders through continuous speech therapy, follow-up support, research, education, and community awareness.

The 2021 SPEAK Out® & LOUD Crowd® Grant provides training and resources to allow Midwestern’s SLP faculty and students the opportunity to help Parkinson patients improve their speech, voice, cognition, and swallowing via a four-week therapeutic program. SPEAK OUT!® therapy includes one-hour sessions, three days a week, for four weeks. There is a fee of $35 per session, and some insurance plans are accepted. Upon completion of the four-week program, participants can continue practicing their skills in a LOUD Crowd® therapeutic group.
