When the World Goes Deaf

Sometimes the human brain is just too smart for its own good. And the brains of people who have Parkinson’s Disease are a perfect example. People with PD often get fooled by their too-smart brain. For example, they often feel that they are speaking in a voice that is loud enough to be heard, and it’s easy for them to get frustrated when listeners complain that they cannot hear or understand. The PD patient does not feel that he or she is speaking any differently than they ever did. It’s like the world has gone deaf!

If this has happened to you, the good news is that your family and colleagues have not gone deaf or begun ignoring you. The bad news is that your brain may be giving you inaccurate information. The issue is a trick of the brain known as sensorimotor misperception.

Parkinson disease (PD) has one of the highest rates of communication difficulties among progressive neurological diseases. Bet you didn’t know that. It’s not a conversation staple at support group meetings, much less during visits with your neurologist. The good news is that it’s treatable with speech therapy services using the LSVT LOUD® approach.
