Lee Silverman Voice Training treatment now offered through Knute Nelson

Local speech language pathologist, Jill Beuckens of Knute Nelson, was recently certified by LSVT Global, LLC in Chicago, Illinois. The Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT) is a proven, effective speech program that focuses on improving functional communication and voice volume in adults with neurological disorders.

Particular successes have been shown with individuals living with Parkinson's disease. Most patients with Parkinson's disease and other neurological disorders experience decreased voice volume and intelligibility of their speech as their disease progresses.

"People seeking this specialized treatment can now access one of the only certified LSVT speech therapists in the region here at Knute Nelson," said Jill Stroup, director of therapy.
