      My Dad’s speech has gotten slower and more strained. He still does a beautiful job of communicating when he wants to, but I worry that he doesn’t always participate in conversations because it’s getting harder for him to talk. He hasn’t tried speech therapy, and I’m not sure how to convince him to try. Have you explored speech therapy? If so, have you seen positive results?

      I have been taking speech therapy thru the Mpls VA for a year now via video link once/week and will continue with it because it has helped me.

      You might have him look at this website – they have free daily practice sessions & lots of helpful information. Also there is an anniversary video that shows some PwP with speech difficulties both before and after speech therapy and it might inspire and/or convince him to try it. http://www.parkinsonvoiceproject.org
