FOND DU LAC – SSM Health Greater Fond du Lac is now offering a new speech therapy program that helps individuals with Parkinson’s disease to maintain their voices and minimize swallowing concerns.  

A speech-language pathologist, Angela Hall will provide the Parkinson Voice Project’s SPEAK OUT!® and The LOUD® Crowd speech therapy program at SSM Health hospitals in Fond du Lac, Ripon and Waupun. 

The SPEAK OUT!® program typically consists of 12 therapy sessions and daily home practice. During individual speech therapy sessions, the patient and the speech-language pathologist work their way through a series of speech, voice and cognitive exercises outlined in a comprehensive workbook.

Those interested in this therapy – which SSM Health Greater Fond du Lac said is typically covered by insurance – must first get a script from their healthcare provider for a speech evaluation.

For more information, call SSM Health Greater Fond du Lac Therapy Services at (920) 926-5370.
