Steven is credentialed with ASHA and licensed Speech-Language Pathologist operating out of Austin, TX. Steven's experience includes settings of acute, inpatient, outpatient, and skilled nursing facilities. Over the course of the past five years, Steven took special interest in the population affected by Parkinson's Disease; he saw the vast improvements these clients made in their speech but believed there was a better way to deliver treatment. When not working, Steven spends time with his wife and two boys or playing ultimate frisbee.
People with PD often experience a diminished and flat voice. Research and our experience shows that a person still possesses the ability to speak loudly, but it requires deliberate effort. We want users recalibrating - speaking with more effort to achieve their previous volumes so that users can re-engage with their lives!
I've been diagnosed with Parkinson's but don't notice voice issues. Is this webinar for me?
Short answer: yes. Long answer: preventative maintenance, in all areas that Parkinson's may affect, is a powerful tool to combat symptom onset. Your voice is no different; the best way to preserve and even improve your voice is start practicing early.
How is this webinar series different from other voice treatment programs?
Loud and Clear offers two products: a webinar series and an app to download. The webinars are live, interactive, and joined by hundreds of others taking back their voice. The app is completed individually anywhere a user wants, whenever a user wants.
Does the Parkinsons Voice Webinar replace treatment from a Speech-Language Pathologist?
No, currently we don't recommend our webinar or app as a replacement to traditional voice treatment. However, with people sheltered in place, we needed to give people with PD an option to maintain their vocal fitness.
