Pediatric Voice Disorders: Evaluation and Treatment

Voice disorders can adversely affect communicative effectiveness, social development, scholastic performance, and self-esteem. Evaluation and treatment of pediatric voice disorders requires a multidisciplinary team approach, which includes a pediatric otolaryngologist and a speech-language pathologist. This program focuses on assessment of voice disorders in children ages 4–12, including laryngeal visualization and acoustic/ aerodynamic measures, as well as behavioral management in the form of voice therapy.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • describe procedures for evaluation of voice disorders in children
  • describe the drawbacks of a pediatric voice therapy approach based solely on vocal hygiene, and the benefits of focusing on vocal technique for treatment of dysphonia
  • implement a variety of techniques in voice therapy with pediatric populations
  • modify voice therapy techniques to encourage skill acquisition, motivation, and compliance
