The Parkinson’s Communication Club meets every Tuesday. Led by Susan I. Wranik, the Club establishes a wellness and prevention program for individuals with Parkinson’s disease and their care partners, with a focus on maintenance of communication skills. It stresses the importance of speaking louder to be heard in social settings. This program is a collaboration between The Kensington and The Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area (PFNCA.)
The Parkinson’s Communication Club is led by a licensed speech-language therapist, Susan Wranik, a certified clinician in LSVT LOUD therapy (Lee Silverman Voice Treatment, which improves vocal loudness by stimulating muscles of the voice box and speech mechanism through systematic exercises). The Club, however, is not therapy. Rather, it is an exercise group designed to improve volume. The approach helps people speak loudly and clearly in order to make themselves heard. Most importantly, this club is designed in a group setting – one for all and all for one – a team effort to be loud.
