Speech in Individuals with Parkinson's Disease with and without Deep Brain Stimulation.

Changes in speech and communication for individuals with Parkinson’s disease (PD) are common. The causes and characteristics of speech disturbance in individuals with PD are complex and variable, but there are general patterns of speech changes in PD that are related to and coordinated by an integrated network of sensory, muscular, respiratory, and thinking functions.

My goal when starting, which grew into,
is to continually serve the Parkinson’s community. 

Our surveys have always been and will always remain free. 

We will never charge anyone to participate in our surveys, and
we will never charge anyone a fee to download the results of our survey.

Because we are also committed to helping to fund the most
promising research to help find the cure to Parkinson’s,
we appreciate any donation to The Parkinson Alliance
