Types of Services

What types of services are offered?

Speech-language pathologists provide voice evaluations and therapy for traditional speakers and voice professionals. Prior to an evaluation, an examination of the vocal cords by an ENT provider is preferred.

Individuals who have lost the ability to speak due to removal of their vocal cords after head and neck cancer are supported through training to use an electrolarynx or other communication supports.

Evaluation includes a thorough analysis of voice behavior and function, as well as, social and emotional screening to assess use of voice for communication. Testing can include voice tasks, analysis of quality and diagnostic therapy to assess the best tools for rehabilitation.

Treatment can include functional drills, compensatory strategies and conversation for implementation of new voice behaviors.
