Due to a variety of factors, many clinicians don’t feel confident doing voice therapy with children. This session will discuss the knowledge and skills needed to treat children with voice disorders. The presenter will explore how to formulate a treatment plan based on a child’s underlying voice problem; teach the child the vocal behaviors and skills to produce easy, clear voice with minimal effort; and help them carry this over into their everyday life.
