Special Collection: Lee Silverman Voice Treatment

August 3, 2018

The ASHA Journals are proud to announce the introduction of special collections. Special collections will offer research from across ASHA’s journals on a given topic in one convenient place.

The first collection features the long history of published research in the ASHA journals on the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT), many of which have now been made open access. LSVT was developed to improve the speech and movement of those with Parkinson disease and other neurological conditions. These articles span many years and summarize research for speech treatment of those with Parkinson Disease.

Best of all, these articles are all available open access, and can be read by anyone free of cost. Browse or share the entire collection, or see article previews below. These open access articles explore the use of LSVT with a number of patient groups.
