Kent State University’s Speech Pathology and Audiology Department also hosts a number of group therapy sessions. These sessions include school-age social skills groups, early intervention groups for children (birth - 3 years), and adult cognitive-communication groups.


The Kent State University Speech and Hearing Center offers individual SPEAK OUT!® treatment as well as SPEAK OUT! groups to address voice and communication difficulties for people with any stage of Parkinson’s.  This research-based method will teach our clients to “speak with intent” using the pyramidal system in the brain less reliant on dopamine, a neurotransmitter known to be decreased with Parkinson’s. 

These services are supported by a grant through the Parkinson’s Voice Project.
