The LSVT LOUD® Training and Certification Course is a two‐day program designed to train speech‐language pathologists in a voice/speech treatment technique for adults and children with motor speech disorders, with a specialty in Parkinson disease
The fundamentals underlying key treatment elements, efficacy data supporting treatment outcomes, details of treatment tasks, including hands‐on practice, and practical considerations are taught. Application of the LSVT LOUD® treatment to pediatric and adult motor speech disorders (e.g., multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and stroke) will be discussed. The impact of LSVT LOUD® treatment on pre/post neural imaging data will be presented. This training is offered for 1.2 ASHA CEUs.
Steps for Certification:
  1. Register for a two‐day LSVT LOUD® Training and Certification Course.
  2. Attend the entire two‐day LSVT LOUD® Training and Certification Course.
  3. Complete a Certification Exam with an 85% score required to receive certification. The exam will be administered during the two‐day training course. If a participant does not pass the examination, there will be an opportunity for participants to re‐take the exam online.
