Thanks for the question. 🙂 The part I liked most was the practical one because it shows the real P.D. impact on people and their every day functioning. Last summer, I have spent two weeks with Parkies (as a speech therapist) and have noticed, that they use some tips mentioned by Pam Quinn. For example, they find it helpful to sing(or listen to music) when they need to cover a distance from point A to B. The rhythm is an important part of their rehabilitation, which helps them speak and walk. What’s more, they really can dance or ride a bike, even if they spend almost all day in a wheelchair. They have used to organized dance or karaoke parties almost every evening and they seem like totally healthy people.
