TX's Parkinson's Voice Project is a nonprofit that trains speech therapists how to help people suffering from disease-related speech loss.
"At first Cid, who is director of the Homeland Security Institute at Rose State College in Oklahoma, thought the idea of speech therapy was “ridiculous.” His first therapist, he said, was ill-equipped to deal with his Parkinson’s-related issues. But on advice from his neurologist, Cid sought help in January from a therapist in Oklahoma who was trained by Samantha Elandary, founder and CEO of Parkinson Voice Project in Richardson. Parkinson Voice Project is a nonprofit on Coit Road that specializes in training speech-language pathologists to deal with speech loss associated with Parkinson’s disease." -- Daniel Houston, the Dallas Morning News
