Voice Therapy

What is voice therapy?

Voice therapy is a technique administered by a speech therapist to treat voice disorders.

Voice disorders may develop from overuse and/or misuse of voice, changes during puberty, paresis of vocal cords, and/or other medical conditions. Some common symptoms of voice problems include hoarseness, breathy and raspy voice, loss of ability to attain some high notes while singing, or reduced loudness in voice.

Speech therapists are specialists with the knowledge and experience to evaluate, treat and support individuals with voice problems.
