The best-selling voice book that contains the most complete voice treatment material in the field has a new look and a new sound. While The Voice and Voice Therapy, Sixth Edition boasts the most up-to-date facilitation techniques and the best tested clinical stimulation approaches available today, the accompanying CD-ROM illustrates voice problems in children and adults, and methods of relevant therapy. This edition divides voice disorders into three causal areas (functional, organic and neurogenic) with a separate chapter devoted to each area. Evaluation procedures are then presented with some emphasis given to particular evaluation strategies for identified causal areas. Disorders not often addressed, including sulcus vocalis, muscle tension dysphonia, and paradoxial vocal fold dysfunction are also covered in this text. This book also presents facilitating approaches in table form, detailing when a particular approach is useful, listing the sequence of therapy steps for that approach, and illustrating the outcome using the approach with a particular patient. These therapy approaches are also illustrated on the CD-ROM, making the therapy process come alive. For Speech-Language Pathology practitioners.
