Parkinson’s Patients

Unique to our speech therapy services is SPEAK OUT! for Parkinson’s patients. The program typically consists of twelve speech therapy sessions and daily home practice. SPEAK OUT! emphasizes speaking with intent and converts speech from an automatic function to an intentional act. Upon graduation from SPEAK OUT!, patients transition to The LOUD Crowd. A Parkinson’s Support Group meets at the Phoenixville YMCA on the second Monday of every month at 1:30 p.m.
