Lidcombe Program
The Lidcombe Program is a behavioral treatment for children who stutter under 6 years of age (may be suitable for some older children). This form of therapy uses a combination of therapy sessions and parental day-to-day observations to ultimately either remove the stutter entirely or reach an extremely low level. Find out more.

LSVT LOUD® is an effective speech treatment for individuals with Parkinson's Disease (PD) and other neurological conditions. Published research data support improvements in vocal loudness, intonation, and voice quality for individuals with PD who received LSVT LOUD, with improvements maintained up to two years after treatment. Treatment is administered in 16 sessions over a single month (four individual 60-minute sessions per week). Patients are trained to self-generate the adequate amount of loudness to make their speech understood.  Find out more.
