SPEAK OUT!® is a highly effective speech therapy program developed by Parkinson Voice Project.

SPEAK OUT!® typically consists of twelve individual speech therapy sessions conducted by a speech-language pathologist trained by Parkinson Voice Project. Together, the patient and the speech-language pathologist work their way through a series of speech, voice, and cognitive exercises outlined in a comprehensive workbook provided to every patient in the U.S. as a gift from Parkinson Voice Project. Each therapy session lasts 40-45 minutes. The primary goals of SPEAK OUT!® are to strengthen the muscles used for speaking and swallowing and to teach patients how to speak with intent and deliberation. SPEAK OUT!® and The LOUD Crowd® are registered trademarks of Parkinson Voice Project.

Could Parkinson's be affecting 
your speech and swallowing?

 Do people ask you to repeat?
 Does your voice sound hoarse, scratchy, or breathy?
 Does your family say you speak too softly?
 Do you clear your throat often?
 Is your voice strong on some days, weak on others?
 Do you cough when you eat or drink?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you might benefit from SPEAK OUT!®
