• Red Flags

    Your child may have a voice disorder if:

    • He/she is consistently hoarse
    • He/she talks with a breathy/raspy/strained voice
    • He/she constantly loses his/her voice


    Traditional therapy approach includes:

    • Eliminating vocal abuses (ex. excessive screaming, coughing, and/or throat clearing)
    • Relaxation
    • Using a soft/easy voice

    Parental Suggestions

    • Model “inside” voice
    • Try to identify vocal abuses
    • Drink a lot of water
