If you use your voice professionally, like teachers, lawyers, actors, and singers do, you can run into trouble just when you need your voice the most. The problem may have already led to surgery, such as removal of vocal nodules. Your speech therapist will guide you to experience the feeling of healthy voicing. A set of gentle exercises will be designed specifically for your needs, to coax out and strengthen the voice that will best serve you. The goal is safe and healthy vocal use, so you can speak or sing effectively and confidently.
Before a voice treatment program is initiated, it is advisable to have an examination by an otolaryngologist, because a proper diagnosis will lead to more effective treatment.
Treatment frequency: One to three sessions per week, with practice in between. The number of sessions depends on the individualís severity of impairment and response to treatment.
