Starting the Big and Loud program again...love this approach. We had the Loud part before and it is really helpful with breathing and voice problems. The hospital didn't have the Big part then but does now so we began this week. Terrific.
Here is how the therapist described the problem:
In PD everything gets small...writing, walking, breathing, talking...every component part. You feel like your movements are normal in size, length, decibel, etc. but they are actually miniaturized. This program teaches you how to make what will seem like GRAND, HUGE, EXAGGERATED gestures and sounds but are actually normal in appearance and sound to the viewer.
It is covered by Medicare.
