LSVT BIG and LSVT LOUD are intensive programs designed to treat patients with Parkinson's Disease. LSVT BIG treatment is customized to the unique goals of each patient including both gross and fine motor skills. LSVT LOUD treatment is cutomized to the unique communication goals of each person across a range of disease severity and communication impairments. Both programs have documented improved ratings on tests of multiple levels of motor and communicative functions.
LSVT BIG is an intensive, amplitude focused physical and occupational therapy approach developed from principles of the effective Parkinson's specific speech treatment LSVT LOUD®.
LSVT LOUD is the first speech treatment with level 1 evidence and established efficacy for treating voice and speech disorders in people with Parkinson Disease (PD) with application to other neurological disorders.
