I am a Canadian SLP with many PD and PD+ patients on my caseload. I have found Conversation Paceboard to be quite helpful in teaching a slower rate of speech and better clarity. My clients seem to enjoy this app as it gives them immediate feedback (Too Quick). As well they seem to find it more fun and modern than a traditional pacing board. Well done!
