A challenge for many people with Parkinson’s is finding the time for speech practice. So, a part of the mission here at Voice Aerobics, is creating fun products and programs that can be used by patients any time and anywhere.
In 2010,Grand Slam© joined the family of products. Inspired by mother, an avid bridge player, they were originally designed to be a companion product to the Voice Aerobics® DVD, but are now a stand alone pack of 52 poker cards with speech and voice activities on 25 of the cards. Use them in or out of speech therapy, use them on your own, or while playing a game of cards with others. Your Physical and Occupational therapists may even have you reaching and bending to pick up a card helping you incorporate speech practice into every movement.
Slide them into your purse or pocket and get started. You’ll be prompted to perform a voice or cognitive-linguistic activity, designed to help you Think AND stay LOUD!
Sometimes in life, you just have to play the hand your dealt, and we’re here to make sure it’s FUN!

The Port Charlotte-Punta Gorda LOUD Crowd® Speech at the Beach
When The Parkinson Voice Project asked local LOUD Crowd groups to send a video representing their area of the country, we just had to do it on the beach. I LOVE this fun group of people. Visit the Parkinson Voice project website where they will show highlights from groups around the country. Our group’s motto: “Don’t Worry, Be Happy!”
To enlist individuals in their treatment, and help them express their personality & spirit through voice. To educate and empower.
