Voice production requires motor output from the nervous system to muscles of multiple coordinated structures. In patients who present with recurrent laryngeal nerve or superior laryngeal nerve deficits, vocal fold paresis and paralysis can be challenging to manage due to the variability in vocal impairments. Evidence-based practice for vocal fold paresis and paralysis often involves collaboration between laryngologists and speech-language pathologists. Surgical procedures to correct vocal fold closure may be necessary in addition to voice therapy to optimize vocal fold vibration and voice production. The goal of this introductory course for speech-language pathologists is to teach clinicians in outpatient and other rehabilitation settings to develop effective, patient-centered voice therapy for patients diagnosed with vocal fold paresis and paralysis.
