Lee Silverman Voice Treatments


Lee Silverman Voice Treatments (LSVT LOUD™ and LSVT BIG™) are innovative and clinically-proven methods for improving communication and movement in individuals with Parkinson's disease and other conditions, such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and Down syndrome.


  • LSVT LOUD therapy can improve both the voice and speech of individuals with Parkinson's disease by treating underlying physical pathology associated with the disordered voice.
  • Treatment focuses on improving vocal loudness.
  • LSVT Loud is administered by a certified speech-language pathologist on an intensive schedule of 16 individual, 60-minute sessions in one month’s time.
  • Ninety percent of patients improve vocal loudness from pre to post-treatment. About 80 percent of patients maintain treatment improvements in their voice one to two years after treatment.
  • More than 20 years of research funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) has documented that LSVT LOUD Parkinson-specific speech therapy is effective.
  • Treatment results last up to two years, making LSVT LOUD the “gold standard” in treating speech disorders for people with Parkinson's disease.


  • LSVT BIG research has documented faster walking with bigger steps, improved balance and increased trunk rotation.
  • LSVT BIG is also a standardized treatment protocol that trains a single target of amplitude (bigger movements).
  • LSVT BIG is administered by a certified physical therapist or occupational therapist on an intensive schedule of 16 individual, 60-minute sessions in one month’s time.
  • LSVT BIG teaches how to avoid inactivity and keep movements alive during everyday activities.
  • Research suggests that patients should not wait until they begin to experience disability, impaired function or loss of balance to start exercise-based physical and occupational therapy.


Physician or nurse practitioner's referral is required.
