Video Runtime: 73 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 40 Minutes

Vocal Function Exercises (VFE) are a series of systematic voice exercises designed to strengthen and balance the laryngeal musculature, increase or improve vocal fold adduction, and coordinate the subsystems of voice production. This course is designed to introduce the rationale behind the use of VFEs including the historical development, supportive evidence, and precision of execution. Course participants will learn to precisely apply the exercise techniques with their population of voice disordered patients.

A Physiologic Approach to Voice Therapy

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are presented with multiple types of voice disorders to evaluate and treat. These disorders arise from a variety of etiologies and numerous patient vocal compensations. Given the variety of potential treatment options, how does the SLP choose the most effective treatment? Speech-language pathology literature identifies several general voice therapy orientations, vocal hygiene, symptomatic voice therapy, psychogenic voice therapy and physiologic voice therapy. This course will introduce the participant to these orientations as well as the evidence supporting their use. Choosing the appropriate evidence-based therapy approach is essential to successful voice therapy.

Resonant Voice Therapy: Generalizing the Balanced Voice

Presented by Joseph C. Stemple, PhD, CCC-SLP, ASHAF

Resonant Voice Therapy: Generalizing the Balanced Voice

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Resonant Voice Therapy (RVT) involves training voice-disordered individuals to produce voice in an easier, more resonant manner. Resonant voice, sometimes referred to as forward focus, describes a voice associated with increased vibratory sensations in the midfacial region. The objective of this approach is to achieve the strongest possible voice with the least effort and impact stress between the vocal folds to minimize the likelihood of injury. This course is designed to introduce the rationale behind the use of a prescriptive RVT program including the historical development and precision of execution. Course participants will learn to precisely apply the exercise techniques with their population of voice disordered patients.
