SAMS welcomed Peggy M. Hodgson MA, CCC, from Shamrock Speech Therapy Services, Inc. She discussed the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT) therapy that is proving to be successful for Parkinson's patients. She also shared Communication Strategies that also help:

  • Always start each sentence, word, phrase, etc. by taking a breath in.

  • Break up longer sentences into smaller parts to make them easier to say without losing your voice.

  • Take more breaths per sentence to ensure you have adequate volume for speech.

  •  SLOW DOWN !!

  • Exaggerate the movements of your mouth when producing words to help enhance the 
    quality of your speech.
