Portland Communication Skills Class
December 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Monday, repeating until December 16, 2019
Are you often asked to repeat a statement? Do you feel like people don’t listen to you anymore?
A majority of people with PD experience changes in speech, voice and swallowing at some point during the course of the disease. Most people get the best improvement with speech and swallowing when medications are paired with practice and exercises. That is why Parkinson’s Resources of Oregon developed this program for those who would like to improve their speech and communication. A certified speech and language pathologist instructs the group through a series of activities, exercises, and discussions.
This 10-week program is not meant to replace speech therapy, but is a safe place to learn and practice new communication skills and memory strategies. It is appropriate for those who have completed the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment, (LSVT) as well as those who haven’t.
