Description

Motor symptoms in Parkinson’s, such as slowness of movement, rigidity, and tremor have long been the focus of identification, assessment, and treatment with rehab as well as with medications and surgery.

However, the problem is some of the earliest symptoms to appear—the non-motor issues—impact speech, language, and cognition and are often overlooked until these symptoms become more pronounced and visible. Also, of concern, many of these issues are not responsive to pharmacological or surgical intervention. This is where treatment with speech-language pathologists comes into play.

Join international Parkinson’s expert, John Dean, MA, CCC-SLP, as he helps you find the clinical answers you’ve been seeking for clients with symptoms that are not responsive to pharmacological or surgical intervention.

This workshop will be a fast-moving intensive look at a range of common communication and cognitive issues associated with Parkinson’s as they intersect with the speech-language pathology scope of practice, including voice and speech as well as language and cognition. You will learn how to skillfully implement a range of treatment approaches to meet your clients’ needs and goals!
