Nonprofit increases grant program impact by 62% from inaugural year.

“Up to 90% of people with Parkinson’s are at high risk of losing their ability to speak. Awarding these grants has increased access to quality speech treatment to those living with Parkinson’s,” said Parkinson Voice Project’s Founder and CEO, Samantha Elandary.

Parkinson Voice Project, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has named the recipients of its 2019 SPEAK OUT!® & LOUD Crowd® Grant Program. Of the 148 grant recipients, four are international clinics. The total number of recipients marks a 62% increase from 2018 when this grant program launched. A full listing of 2019 grant recipients can be found here.

Grant recipients include hospitals, universities, private practices, and nonprofit organizations. Each clinic will receive free training and speech therapy supplies. Some will also receive a trip to Dallas to visit Parkinson Voice Project’s clinic June 19-21, as well as funding to offset the cost of providing group speech therapy.

“Up to 90% of people with Parkinson’s are at high risk of losing their ability to speak. Awarding these grants has increased access to quality speech treatment to those living with Parkinson’s,” said Parkinson Voice Project’s Founder and CEO, Samantha Elandary.

Parkinson Voice Project’s highly effective speech therapy program is based on the teachings of Daniel R. Boone, PhD, a world-renowned speech-language pathologist. The treatment combines individual therapy (SPEAK OUT!®) with ongoing group therapy (The LOUD Crowd®) to convert speech from an automatic function to an intentional act.
