We provide individually tailored interventions and exercises that can be learned from a trained speech-language pathologist.
There are different kinds of methods of treatment in voice therapy. We focus on goals in partnership with the patient and their family to ensure the individual and family have a input in the care received to maximize outcomes.
Different treatment methods, exercises, and approaches are suitable for different people based on individual factors and the cause of the voice disorder. Sometimes fears and anxiety can play a significant role in therapy treatment and are taken into account when pursuing appropriate therapy.
The professional in charge of each individual’s voice therapy program is known as a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP). The SLP will work with each individual to design a program that meets the unique needs of that person. Meaningful activities will be developed to make therapy interesting and effective in meeting goals.
