Lee Silverman Voice Therapy (LSVT) is the gold standard treatment approach for speech and voice issues related to Parkinson's disease. This is a well researched approach, which includes a specified delivery schedule of four treatment sessions per week for four weeks. It is a very dynamic approach which focuses primarily on the use of vocal loudness training in order to improve the communication ability in Parkinsons patients.

Patients are expected to complete additional home program work diligently. A speech pathologist must have additional certification in order to provide this service.

LSVT services are available at the following Sentara locations:

CarePlex Therapy Center - Hampton
Hilltop Therapy Center - Virginia Beach
Leigh Therapy Center, Sentara Leigh Hospital  - Norfolk
Sentara Obici Rehab Services - Suffolk
