Quick List of Adult Therapy Tasks

Often I will PRN evenings at facilities and the patients are unknown to me. Couple this with broad treatment goals (example- “Patient will complete simple verbal expression tasks with Min A” or “Patient will solve simple problems with Mod A”) , limited materials and high productivity demands = whew! Sometimes you just need a quick go-to resource for some tasks! Hope this is helpful to others! · PURPOSE OF TASKS: To improve concrete/basic OR abstract/ complex auditory comprehension & processing tasks for improved functional communication.

Best friend lends a helping hand - national

A Christchurch woman is the first in the country to receive a mobility dog to help her stay independent after a stroke. Diane Williams said her new dog, who is due to become a fully fledged mobility dog next month, has ''absolutely'' changed her life since moving in at the end of last year. The 2-year-old golden retriever, named Orbit, knew 40 to 50 commands, and had become a ''fantastic companion''. Williams, 40, suffered a stroke about four-and-a-half years ago, leaving her unable to speak or move the right side of her body. ''The only word I could say at the start was KFC, of all bloody things.

She was still regaining words following the stroke, and used a wheelchair and a modified car to get around. ''It's funny how the brain works. She was determined to remain as independent as possible, and having Orbit had allowed her to do more. Intensive voice treatment (LSVT®) for patients with Parkinson's disease: a 2 year follow up. + Author Affiliations Dr L O Received 14 February 2000 Revised 11 May 2001 Accepted 23 May 2001 Abstract OBJECTIVES To assess long term (24 months) effects of the Lee Silverman voice treatment (LSVT®), a method designed to improve vocal function in patients with Parkinson's disease.

Intensive voice treatment (LSVT®) for patients with Parkinson's disease: a 2 year follow up

METHODS Thirty three patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease were stratified and randomly assigned to two treatment groups. One group received the LSVT®, which emphasises high phonatory-respiratory effort. RESULTS The LSVT® was significantly more effective than the RET in improving (increasing) SPL and STSD immediately post-treatment and maintaining those improvements at 2 year follow up. CONCLUSIONS The findings provide evidence for the efficacy of the LSVT® as well as the long term maintenance of these effects in the treatment of voice and speech disorders in patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease. Methods Table 1 Results. Speaking of Apps : Adjust the Volume. Vocal intensity, or volume, is frequently a target of adult speech therapy.

Speaking of Apps : Adjust the Volume

Clients with Parkinson's disease often speak too softly, those with TBI may speak too loudly or too softly, and clients with dysarthria from stroke may be too loud or too quiet. Speaking too softly can make it difficult to communicate effectively, while speaking too loudly can be socially inappropriate or convey the wrong sentiment. While many clients will need specialized voice training, such as LSVT, to increase their volume, others may benefit from a simple visual reminder of how loudly or softly they are speaking to modify their volume. While there are several apps that measure volume, there are a few that do a nice job of showing an acceptable range for therapeutic purposes.
