Those diagnosed with Parkinson’s may experience reduced breath support and monotone speaking qualities leading to low speaking volume, which is difficult for others to hear and understand. PFNCA provides programs to strengthen your breath support and improve your ability to project so you can continue to be heard loud and clear by your family and friends.
