The focus of this research effort was to examine the prevalence and impact of voice problems among a sample of physical education teachers. The survey was administered to K-12 physical education teachers (n = 199) addressing three aspects of voice issues: consequences, strategies for prevention, and potential risk factors. The results indicated a strong prevalence and impact of voice problems for almost all physical education teachers surveyed regardless of grade level taught, age, or gender. Findings indicate an immediate need for physical education teachers and administrators to determine the most appropriate, cost-effective procedures that can reduce voice problems for those in this at-risk occupation. (Contains 4 tables and 2 figures.)
