Examples of LVST Therapy SLP: First, we are going to do some exercises. Then I will have you read off some words, phrases, and last sentences.
SLP: Very nice. Let's do the LION exercise!
Patient: (put tongue out and ROAR)
SLP: Okay, now it's time for you to "go up" with your voice for 20 seconds
Patient: Screams voice up
SLP: "Go down" with your voice for 20 seconds
Patient: Screams voice down

SLP: Remember to "Think Loud". We are just goint to have a conversation now. Tell me about your day.
Patient: It feels like I am talking so loud. My day was good. Patient Considerations Insurance limitations
Depression in the patient may cause withdrawal
Fatigue, intensive treatment may cause fatigue in older patients
SLP must undergo a full two-day LSVT training and certification workshop before delivering LSVT to patients.
LSVT offers free educational lectures and interactive sessions to those with Parkinson's and other neurological disorders and their loved ones
There are LSVT products available at an additional cost for patients to use before, during, and after treatment: homework helper DVD and LSVT companion system home edition. Comparison to alternative therapies LSVT vs. Respiratory Effort Therapy -
Improved loudness, reduced breathiness, reduced hoarseness, increased overall intelligibility, increased vocal intensity, and improved overall speech quality for LSVT participants Conclusion As research suggests, LSVT should be the preferred therapy option for hypokinetic dysarthria in those with Parkinson's disease when compared to RET, OPTION 2, and OPTION 3. for hypokinetic dysarthria due to Parkinson's disease References (Sapri et al., 2002; Baumgartner, Sapir, & Ramig, 2001; Ramig, Countryman, Thompson, & Horii, 1995; Ramig, Countryman, O'Brien, Hoehn, & Thompson, 1996).
