SPEAK OUT!™ Speech Rehab Program

SPEAK OUT!™ is an intensive voice and speech rehab program based on the teachings of Dr. Daniel R. Boone. Including a combination of individual and group voice sessions taught by a speech-language pathologist, SPEAK OUT!™ is offered at the Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation outpatient clinic at INTEGRIS Southwest Medical Center. Throughout the program, patients learn to "speak with intent" and "speak louder," and in turn, improve overall communication.

Upon completion of SPEAK OUT! speech rehabilitation program, patients report the following improvements:

  • Vocal Volume – 100%
  • Quality of Life – 95%
  • Articulation – 91%
  • Confidence – 90%
  • Swallowing – 80%
  • Decrease in drooling – 76%
  • Breath Support for Speech – 67%

Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation has formed a unique partnership with the Parkinson Foundation of Oklahoma and is now offering an extraordinary new speech therapy program for Parkinson’s patients called the Parkinson Voice Project of Oklahoma.

"The LOUD Crowd" will be offered through the Parkinson Foundation of Oklahoma, at their offices in Oklahoma City. When asked to comment on the SPEAK OUT!™ Oklahoma program, Jim Keating, Executive Director of the Parkinson Foundation of Oklahoma said:

"When several of our board members joined me on a trip to Richardson to observe the staff of the Parkinson Voice Project and witness the profound improvements in speaking and swallowing, we knew that somehow, some way, this therapy must come to Oklahoma, because it is effective. Fortunately for the Parkinson Foundation of Oklahoma and the 15,000 Parkinson patients in Oklahoma, INTEGRIS Jim Thorpe also saw the possibilities. We are so excited to work with the talented and caring professionals at INTEGRIS Jim Thorpe and bring this therapy to Oklahoma."
