SPEAK OUT! and LOUD Crowd Programs

Clínica de Servicios Interdisciplinarios de la Universidad Ana G. Méndez, Recinto de Gurabo (CSIUAGM)

The Clínica de Servicios Interdisciplinarios de la Universidad Ana G. Méndez, Recinto de Gurabo (CSIUAGM) is pleased to offer a two-part speech therapy program to help individuals with Parkinson’s regain and maintain effective communication: SPEAK OUT!® followed by The LOUD Crowd®. 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.

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.

Participation in The LOUD Crowd®, along with daily home practice and six-month re-evaluations, has been shown to help patients maintain their communication skills throughout the progression of Parkinson’s.

SPEAK OUT!® and LOUD Crowd® are free services offered at CSIUAGM.
