Kerry has been trained to deliver the LSVT® LOUD Program. This program is especially tailored for clients who are have been diagnosed with degenerative neurological diseases. Simple, concentrated and effective sessions are offered to assist those who experience altered rates and clarity or speech, altered awareness of their own volume of speech, and reduced respiratory support for speech relating to neurological degeneration.
The Speechie Spot also facitilates The Camperdown Program – an evidence based stuttering course recommended for adults and teens over 12 years and is suitable for the full spectrum of stutter severity. This program aims to reduce the client’s stuttering during everyday speech. Developed as a variant of the Lidcombe Program, the Camperdown Program uses slow and exaggerated spoken speech as its central control mechanism. Social Anxiety management can also be incorporated into the course.
