SPEAK OUT!® and The LOUD Crowd®

The University of Utah Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic is pleased to offer a two-part speech therapy program to help individuals with Parkinson’s Disease regain and maintain effective communication: SPEAK OUT!® followed by The LOUD Crowd®.  

What is SPEAK OUT!®

SPEAK OUT!® places emphasis on speaking with intent and converting speech from an automatic function to an intentional act. Together, patients and their speech-language pathologist work through a series of speech, voice, and cognitive exercises outlined in a SPEAK OUT!® Workbook. 

What is The LOUD Crowd®

Upon completion of SPEAK OUT!®, patients transition to The LOUD Crowd®. This maintenance program consists of weekly group sessions led by a speech-language pathologist. The SPEAK OUT!® exercises are performed, and group members provide support, encouragement, and accountability to one another.
