Our evaluation includes a comprehensive case history review, objective voice measures and a perceptual assessment of vocal techniques and patterns the patient uses for speech and performance. Such techniques may include but are not limited to:
- Voice Handicap Index
- Reflux Symptoms Index
- Reflux finding score
- Vocal recordings and analysis
- Voice Therapy
Our speech language pathologist will create voice therapy goals tailored to meet your specific needs. This maybe all that is needed to correct a voice problem, or it may be recommended in conjunction with surgery and/or medication. Goals may include education, mastery of techniques and exercises that begin with easy sounds and move into conversational speech and, for singers, into singing. They frequently include breathing techniques as well.
