April 18, 2017

Sponsored by SIG 3 Voice and Voice Disorders, In Recognition of World Voice Day on April 16

Have you just received a consult for a patient with a voice disorder? Unsure about treatment? For new clinicians, treating patients with voice disorders may be daunting. This chat will focus on techniques for treating voice disorders. Some techniques are disorder-specific (for example, circumlaryngeal massage for functional dysphonia) while others (such as Stemple vocal function exercises, resonant voice therapy, semi-occluded vocal tract exercises and flow phonation) are used to treat a variety of disorders. The following panelists will be available to answer questions:

  • Jacqueline Gartner-Schmidt, PhD, CCC-SLP, ASHA Fellow, Co-Director, University of Pittsburgh Voice Center, Director of SLP - Voice Division, and Professor of Otolaryngology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
  • Marc Haxer, CCC-SLP, Retired Speech-Language Pathologist formerly at the University of Michigan Health System
  • Claudio Milstein, PhD, CCC-SLP, Director of The Voice Center at the Cleveland Clinic and Associate Professor, Cleveland Clinic Learner School of Medicine 

This free event is open to all (it is not offered for CEUs).
