Clinical Management of Voice Disorders.
Fox, Donna Russell; Blechman, Mark
Presented for the practicing speech clinician is a guide for appropriate management of voice disorders. The value of a clinician's awareness of vocal dysfunction is stressed, and various techniques (such as indirect laryngoscopy) used in laryngeal examinations are described briefly. A chapter on procedures for evaluation and quantification of voice disorders includes a complete voice patient case history form; guidelines for evaluating pitch, loudness, quality, and time; and a discussion of various etiological factors (such as vocal nodules and endocrine dysfunction) which can cause vocal dysfunction. Provided in a chapter on the therapeutic process are brief descriptions of medical and psychological treatments, specific (listening techniques) for helping the patient identify his problem, and guidelines and materials for implementing change in pitch, loudness, quality, and time.
