SPEAK OUT!® places emphasis on speaking with intent and converting speech from an automatic function to an intentional act. Together, patients and their speech-language pathologist work through a series of speech, voice, and cognitive exercises outlined in a SPEAK OUT!® Workbook.
Upon completion of SPEAK OUT!®, patients transition to the SPEAK OUT!® Speech Group. This maintenance program consists of weekly group sessions led by a speech-language pathologist. The SPEAK OUT!® exercises are performed, and group members provide support, encouragement, and accountability to one another.
Please note, you must have physician orders and schedule a speech evaluation prior to participation in SPEAK OUT!® and the SPEAK OUT!® Speech Group. Please call 312-238-1000 to schedule an appointment.
