At Truesdail Center for Communicative Disorders, we design a therapy program after a full evaluation. The evaluation process includes an exploration of the history of the problem, diagnostic testing, and a staff conference with the client and family.
A therapy program, which includes involvement in one or more of the following options, will be designed for the client:
Individual sessions scheduled one or two times a week
Small group sessions scheduled one or two times a week
Adult support groups
Parent training groups
Although no referral is necessary, referrals to Truesdail Center are accepted from private and professional agencies, school districts, individuals and advocate groups.
It's important for people living with Parkinson's to improve and maintain their voices in order to avoid potential speech and swallowing difficulties. Parkinson Voice Project® has developed a comprehensive speech therapy program —SPEAK OUT!® and The LOUD Crowd®—that combines education, individual speech therapy, and group sessions in order to strengthen communication skills and provide support. The program is offered through a relationship with the University of Redlands and Human Good – Plymouth Village. The program is facilitated by graduate students who are supervised by licensed speech-language therapists in the University of Redlands, Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders program.
SPEAK OUT!® and The LOUD Crowd® are offered free of charge.
SPEAK OUT!® therapy sessions are scheduled weekly. The LOUD Crowd® meets once a week.
Please contact Julia Shuler to learn more about enrolling in the comprehensive program.
