This course considers the anatomic, physiologic, acoustic, & perceptual aspects of normal voice & selected voice problems across the lifespan. A hypothesis-driven context & patient-centered framework is used to develop protocols for prevention of voice problems, identification of risk factors, & promotion of efficient phonation. We will discuss the impact of multi-cultural & psychosocial factors on voice. Participation in labs links motor learning theory to manner of phonation & facilitates development of goals & identification of appropriate procedures.
