Apr 22, 2009 (Started Feb 24, 2009)

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Improve communication)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: 150 min Weekly
Advice & Tips: This therapy is valuable in teaching PD patients some of the exercises which they can do to improve their speech. It also teaches you how to slow down in your pace of speaking. My speech pathologist was very supportive of me too. THAT is a real confidence booster. It is NOT a magic cure-all.
Cost: $100-199 monthly
