Normal voice production requires that the pitch, loudness, and quality be relatively pleasing and audible to the listener. Voice disorders occur when any of these parameters are outside of the normal range. The clinic provides assessment and treatment of a variety of voice disorders including vocal cord dysfunction and voice restoration following a laryngectomy. Professional voice consultation is offered to help clients train and use their voice for professional careers.
