Don't Let Voice Therapy Keep You in the Upside Down (1.75 hours of PDH)

Course Summary

Voice assessment and treatment often are difficult to obtain competence in because voice remains a subspecialty of speech-language pathology. Graduate programs usually cannot cover knowledge and skills, as well as practical application in 1 semester, and it’s difficult to obtain real-world knowledge as a licensed clinician. This presentation covers updates to evaluation of voice including videostroboscopy overview, acoustic and aerodynamic testing and overview, as well as behavioral assessment of  voice that can be completed even by clinicians with minimal voice exposure.

From case history, to PROMS, and different types of instrumental assessments, Kristie Knickerbocker M.S. CCC-SLP takes you through the types of assessment ideas you want to try for voice disorders. She talks about the different types of acoustic and perceptual voice assessments, objective voice measures like CPP and AVQI, as well as stimulabilty. Indirect and Direct Voice therapy techniques are discussed in detail, followed by a section on case studies so you can understand decision making strategies for treating people with voice disorders.

Learning Objectives:  
Viewers will be able to list 3 formal or informal tests that can be administered to assess voice in their SLP practices
