Voice disorders result in changes to pitch, loudness, and overall vocal quality. Most childhood voice problems result from vocal abuse, e.g. yelling, shouting, and/or inappropriate vocal strain. Voice problems are also medically based, such as allergies or reflux. These changes tend to interfere with communicative abilities. Parents might say their child has lost his/her voice, voice sounds hoarse or raspy, or that their child seems to be using a lot of effort to speak. Research reports that children and adolescents felt their voice disorders resulted in negative attention and limited their participation in activities.
Intervention for voice disorders will include a full assessment (subjective and objective data collection), indirect and/or direct treatment (depending on the age of the child), and teaching of strategies for improved voice use, elimination of vocal abuse, and management of voice related medical conditions (reflux). Parent education and training is a crucial part of voice therapy, as parents will be responsible for implementing behavioral programs in the home for best voice recovery.
