The Center for Speech and Hearing at Southeast has been awarded a grant from the Parkinson Voice Project in Dallas, TX. This grant funds staff training and resources for a speech intervention program tailored to individuals diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease called SPEAK OUT!®.


This program combines education and individual speech therapy to ensure the best training for our clients. 

The Center’s state-licensed and nationally certified speech-language pathologists, along with graduate students who will also have received training in the SPEAK OUT!® program, will provide this intervention at no cost to persons with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. 

This program is flexible in scheduling depending on the needs of the individual. Participation in the program consists of two to three individual one-hour appointments per week for three to four weeks.
