Student Corner

Welcome Students!

What is LSVT LOUD?

LSVT (Lee Silverman Voice Treatment) LOUD is a therapeutic protocol that improves the communicative abilities of patients with Parkinson Disease and other neurological conditions. Thousands of clinicians worldwide have been trained on this highly effective treatment approach.

Is LSVT LOUD evidence-based?

Yes, LSVT LOUD was developed and tested over 20 years, supported by continuous NIH funding. It is considered to be the highest standard of treatment for the communicative impairments associated with Parkinson Disease.  90% of patients improve vocal loudness from pre to post-treatment, and approximately 80% of patients maintain treatment improvements in their voice for 12-24 months post-treatment.


Are there student discounts?

Yes, there are deep student discounts that allow you to benefit from this training before you graduate.  Students can obtain their LSVT Loud Certification for only $300, compared to the professional rate of $580. Once you graduate, we will “upgrade” your status to the full professional certification free of charge. This discount is only available while you are an active student.

Is online training possible?

Yes, you can complete this training online and without the expense of travel and accommodations.  Over 1800 graduate students were trained in 2013 and 2014.
