LVST BIG Program

My doctor referred me to Touro’s LSVT program.

“ After completing the program I went from needing a wheelchair to independent walking.  My speech has become louder and more easily understood.  I learned a lot from the staff-they were professional, supportive and encouraging. ”

I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease fifteen years ago. I had Deep Brain Stimulation surgery in June 2010.  I have been able to perform activities of daily living independently but continued to have problems with balance and difficulty with speech. I sounded like I was talking with a mouth full of marbles.  My doctor referred me to Touro’s LSVT program.
