Move BIG and Speak LOUD with Lewy: The Power of LSVT BIG® and LSVT LOUD® to Optimize Your Quality of Life

February 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm EST

Have you noted changes to your movement and voice with Lewy body dementia (LBD)? Moving slower and speaking softer are common changes in LBD that can be frustrating for you, your family and friends. But there is an evidence-based approach to addressing these changes associated with Parkinson’s disease and Lewy body dementia.  

LSVT LOUD® speech therapy improves communication in daily living; and LSVT BIG® physical or occupational therapy improves mobility and movement used in everyday tasks and activities. These are research-based treatment protocols designed specifically to address the movement and non-movement symptoms that many people with LBD face – not general exercise programs. 

Join LBDA and LSVT® Global for this virtual live, interactive workshop where you will have the opportunity to learn more about the LSVT programs and try some of the LSVT LOUD® and LSVT BIG® exercises.  A Q&A session will follow the workshop. 

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to: 

  1. Define LSVT LOUD® speech therapy and LSVT BIG® physical or occupational therapy and identify how these programs can help with common changes to movement and voice in LBD.
  2. Practice some of the LSVT BIG® and LSVT LOUD® activities and recognize how they may improve your movement and communication.  
  3. Examine how you can access LSVT BIG® and LSVT LOUD® programs in your community and your rights to access therapy services with LBD.
