Speech and Swallowing

Like other symptoms of PD, difficulties with speech and swallowing will vary from one person to another. This book will provide you with information, tools and exercises to help you better understand and manage speech, swallowing, voice, communication and cognitive problems in PD. However, it is important that people with PD and their family members advocate for a referral to a speech-language pathologist. This book is not intended to replace a consultation with a speech-language pathologist or other allied health specialist, but can help you to advocate for yourself or a family member by increasing your awareness of how a speech-language pathologist can help you.
