Lee Silverman Voice Technique (LSVT)
LSVT is a treatment for speech disorders associated with Parkinson’s disease and other neurological disorders. This type of therapy focuses on increasing vocal loudness and is performed by a speech therapist in sixteen one-hour sessions. The sessions are spread out over a course of four weeks.
LSVT has been the first effective treatment for voice and speech disorders of individuals with Parkinson’s disease. The overall technique is to increase loudness and improve intelligibility of the patient. The program strives to increase the patient’s success with communication by improving their voice and speech function.
