SPEAK OUT! & LOUD Crowd Training
Continuing Education for Speech-Language Pathologists (1.0 ASHA CEUs)

SPEAK OUT!® & The LOUD Crowd® is a clinically proven speech therapy approach for individuals with Parkinson's that combines education, individual speech therapy, and ongoing group sessions. The program is based on principles of motor learning and teachings of the late Daniel R. Boone, PhD, CCC-SLP who recognized in the late 1950s that individuals with Parkinson’s could improve their communication if they learned to "speak with intent."  Watch Boone's video (on right).

This online continuing education course consists of a professional “video presentation.” You will learn Parkinson Voice Project's method for conducting a speech evaluation, stimulability testing, SPEAK OUT! (individual therapy), The LOUD Crowd (group therapy), and clinical documentation. Demonstration of therapy sessions, as well as patient testimonials, are throughout the course. A typical SPEAK OUT! therapy session is 40-45 minutes long, and patients usually reach their goals in 8-12 sessions.  Parkinson Voice Project also provides free Online Home Practice Sessions for your patients to help them maintain the results they achieve in SPEAK OUT!

Each clinician who completes this course will receive a SPEAK OUT! Workbook and Therapy Flashcards (photo, word, math, and conversation) as a gift from Parkinson Voice Project.  In addition, our nonprofit organization will ship a free SPEAK OUT! Workbook to your U.S. Parkinson's patients as an added benefit.  Your non-U.S. patients can purchase a workbook or receive limited free access to our eLibrary that contains SPEAK OUT! and LOUD Crowd Workbooks in seven different languages.  We also host a "SPEAK OUT! Providers Facebook Group," as well as online clinical resources (e.g. training videos, treatment forms, and marketing tips).  

There are no certification or renewal fees associated with this program.
