Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT) can help individuals speak more loudly and clearly, improving their overall communication abilities and enhancing their quality of life. Treatment includes intensive speech therapy 4 times a week for 4 weeks with an experienced clinician (which can be delivered at our centre or online), regular contact throughout with a follow-up at 3 and 6 months and access to our fortnightly LSVT group. Prior to treatment, you will require an assessment to make sure you are suitable which can also be in person or online.

LSVT LOUD is a speech therapy approach designed to improve the speech and voice quality of individuals with Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions that can affect speech.

The primary goal of LSVT LOUD is to help individuals speak more loudly and clearly, improving their overall communication abilities and enhancing their quality of life. The program is intensive and typically consists of individual sessions with a speech and language therapist who is trained in LSVT. The treatment focuses on increasing vocal loudness through various exercises and tasks that encourage the individual to use a strong voice. One of the key principles of LSVT is “Think Loud”, which encourages individuals to speak with greater effort and intensity than they might normally use.

LSVT is specifically targeted towards individuals with Parkinson’s, which is a long-term neurological condition that can lead to various motor and speech-related difficulties, including reduced vocal loudness, hoarseness, and articulation problems. However, LSVT is not limited to Parkinson’s and can result in improvements in patients with a variety of diagnoses including stroke, multiple sclerosis and ataxia.

LSVT has been widely researched and has shown promising results in improving individuals’ vocal loudness and speech clarity. The treatment is customised to the individual’s needs and progresses over time, with the aim of maintaining the improvements achieved during treatment.

It’s important to note that while LSVT has been effective for many individuals, it may not be suitable for everyone. Our speech and language therapists will assess each person’s specific condition and need to determine the appropriate treatment approach.
