SongShine helps people struggling to speak find their voice


Losing the ability to speak clearly is one of the most devastating aspects of having Parkinson’s disease, stroke, or other neurological damage. For years, experts have tried to develop programs to help people with those conditions regain some of their ability to communicate.

One such program is coming to Juneau this weekend. SongShine uses a music-based method to help people reclaim their voices. A free workshop will be held Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at KTOO. Casey Kelly has more.
